Fiskars signs up for Garden Expo and Glee

New garden centre trade show Garden Expo has signed up Fiskars and Sankey and the Stewart Company as event sponsors.

Fiskars head of marketing Fran Kershaw said she will also exhibit the Fiskars and Sankey brands at Glee (Birmingham NEC on 20-22 September) in 2010.

Kershaw said because other major brands were exhibiting at Garden Expo it would be remiss not to try it out in its first year. "We're testing the water," she added. Fiskars will also exhibit at Gafa in Cologne, Germany on 5-7 September 2010.

Last week HW revealed Hozelock were the first to announce they are to sponsor the new garden retail show, to be held at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire on 28-30 June 2010.
