Ornamentals suppliers and growers are invited to submit their entries and take advantage of the competitive edge winning an award can provide.
Beemat technical director David Holloway said winning a Four Oaks Trade Show Award had transformed his business:
"We were originally a firm manufacturing products for industrial horticulture but we wanted to see if we could take that technology and do something for the retail market.
"Four Oaks was our platform to launch those ideas - little grow mats for allotment growers or gardeners.
"The award from Four Oaks gave us credibility with retailers, as we had no track record, and has given us a platform to talk to major and multiple retailers.
"It's transformed us from a £20-30k business to putting £150k in front of that."
The award categories for 2014 are:
- Best nursery stock introduction
- Best bedding and pot plant introduction
- Best professional product or service,
- Best retail product
- Best technical equipment
- Most innovative exhibit
- Best overseas exhibit
The deadline for entries is Friday 29th August.
The awards presentation will take place at the Four Oaks Trade Show on 2nd September.
Entries can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Pat Coutts, Four Oaks Trade Show, Farm Lane, Lower Withington, Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK11 9DU, UK.
