The Giftware Association (GA) will be holding a Meet the Buyer day with a team from the Tillington Group of Garden Centres.

The Tillington Group of Garden Centres Meet the Buyer event will take place on May 11 at Brentwood in Essex.

The group has 11 member companies with 38 garden centres, representing a combined turnover of more than £200 million.

The day provides the chance for suppliers to showcase their products to the team of buyers and "will follow the same format as a mini trade fair."
