Glee says more than 60 per cent of association members from GIMA, HTA and Gardenex who exhibited in 2009 have submitted applications for exhibition space for the 2010 show (20-22 September, Birmingham NEC).
Show director Dan Thurlow said: "We are working with our exhibitors to ensure that Glee 2010 is another strong event, and it's great to see that our initiatives to reward loyal exhibitors are being so well received. With rebooking so strong this can only be a positive thing for both suppliers and visiting buyers. We are also extremely pleased by the response from both major and emerging brands, and we look forward to building on this going forwards."
Highlighting the show's reputation as an annual showcase of product innovation, Glee will be sponsoring the New Product category at the Garden Retail Awards (2 November, Grosvenor House, London), which will celebrate the best from the UK's garden centres.
