A week of key industry events

Final preparations are now underway for three major industry events taking place next week at which the Horticulture Week team looks forward to welcoming more than 800 industry guests and delegates from across the UK production and garden retail industries.

The bumper package of events kicks-off on Wednesday night with the UK Grower Awards 2015 - the production industry's premier networking event and a night when we celebrate the outstanding achievements of professionals involved in all aspects of growing ornamental, fruit and vegetable crops. With our categories expanded this year to include the cider, viticulture and potato sectors, plus awards for specialist growers, there will be even more to celebrate.

During the day on Thursday our attention will be focused on the garden industry with our first Garden Retail Supply Chain Summit. The event will see a stellar cast of speakers debate the biggest issues facing the sector from the impact on traditional garden retail from the expansion of internet and high street activity in the garden sector to the changing demands of garden industry customers and the challenges driving change among garden industry suppliers.

The summit will be followed in the evening by the Garden Retail Awards 2015, where we will celebrate the achievements of the very best in the sector just as the garden industry season is poised to get underway. What better way to start the gardening year than with an award celebrating the efforts of an outstanding member of staff, team or business?

There are some late tickets available for all these events - just call our ticket hotline on 020 8 267 4014 to secure your place if you haven't done so already. We look forward to seeing you there.
