GAN Best Product Awards 2011 set to highlight industry excellence

Exhibitors at this year's GAN exhibition are once more invited to enter the show's prestigious New Product Awards.

Entry to the GAN New Product awards, organised by Horticulture Week, is free and all winners will receive certificates. The overall winner will automatically go forward to compete in the appropriate category of either the Grower of the Year Awards or the Garden Retail Awards.

Both Awards seek to reward best practice across all sectors of the horticultural industry and being entered into the awards can act as a marketing tool for your company, as a way to demonstrate your professional excellence and as a terrific motivator for staff.

"Winning is a great endorsement of what we do. The valuable promotion received at the show and in the show reviews was great for raising awareness of our new product," according to past winner, John Woods Nurseries.

Judging will take place on the day of the show.

Award Winners 2010:

Overall winner - Fargro

Best New Plant Variety - Kilworth Conifers

Best Technical Product or Service - Fargro
