Landscape Show declares success as exhibitor and visitor numbers rise

The Landscape Show saw exhibitor numbers rise by 52 per cent at its first show in Battersea.

The Landscape Show saw exhibitor numbers rise by 52 per cent at its first show in Battersea.

Visitor numbers at the trade show rose slightly, from 1206 in the first two days of 2012’s show to 1302 visitors this year, when the show was condensed into two days.

Visitors came from 24 different countries to the event, held in Battersea Park on 24 and 25 September to see exhibitors and hear talks by leading names, including Andrew Fisher Tomlin, Adam Frost, Jo Thompson, Andrew Wilson and Juliet Sergeant.

Landscape architect David Keary of Keary Coles Design was also named winner of a design competition run in partnership with Wandsworth Council and will re-design the Albert Bridge Promontory alongside the River Thames.

Sales and marketing director, Michael Corbett, said: "The rise in exhibitor numbers was across the board...We are trying to archive a show which encompasses everything within the industry."

The Landscape Show is run by Landscape Show Limited, a company created during a staff buyout of the show from previous owner Thirty Forty Nine.

Organisers are in discussions with Wandsworth Council, the Society of Garden Designers and the Association of Play Industries to see how they could work together on projects at next year’s show.
