Midland Regional Growers moves and improves plant fairs

Midland Regional Growers is move its British Plant Fairs to Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire and improve its offer to retailers.

The move from the White Logistics facility in Pershore will bring the fairs to a larger audience in a central location and will provide the opportunity to increase the number of exhibitors, said organiser Geoff Caesar.

Caesar said a further development for the events will be the introduction of a shelf samples area with central ordering called Market Place. This service will enable retailers to order from samples of stock from growers exhibiting at the fairs.

Orders will be consolidated and delivered in single deliveries with one delivery note and one invoice. White Logistics will continue their link with the event providing transport for this service.

The fairs began in March 2007 and focus on immediate sales of British plants into garden centres.

Caesar said: "We want to provide a simple one-stop shop in a central location for garden centre retailers who want to buy the best-quality British plants."

Next year's fairs will take place on 5 February, 11 June and 13 August starting at 10am and ending at 3pm. Food and refreshments will be provided courtesy of the exhibitors. Contact Geoff Caesar at geoff@bransfordwebbs.co.uk for further details and booking forms.
