With an importer/distributor landscape company from Romania being the latest vistor to join the group, buyers from all of the above countries are set to meet British suppliers at the Gardenex and PetQuip offices in Brasted, Kent on October 21 (2015).

The Federation of Garden and Leisure Manufacturers, of which Gardenex and PetQuip are divisions, holds a series of "meet the buyers" events each year, and in the past these have resulted in British garden, leisure and pet product firms securing significant initial and repeat international sales in a wide variety of overseas markets.  

UK suppliers are therefore encouraged to contact the federation as quickly as possible as meeting slots fill up fast.  Full details of how to book for the individual buyer meetings will be available soon and you can register interest by emailing Emma Lewis on email: or
