The supply chain group is chaired by the Horticultural Trades Association's David Denny who will outline the latest findings of the group which includes transport, logistics, skills, import substitution and other areas within its remit.
The Garden Retail Supply Chain Summit has been organised by Horticulture Week in response to huge change in the garden industry from the way it sources its plant and garden product offering for its audience, to the way it distributes that offering to gardening consumers.
The event on 26 February 2015 will investigate the key drivers of change from the growth of internet sales, omni-channel retailing and the expansion of high street garden retail, to plant supply post the difficult 2012 and early 2013 seasons and the factors shaping change in the garden product supply base.
The Garden Retail Supply Chain Summit will ask what actions garden industry professionals, whether suppliers or buyers, who are impacted by the changes should be taking right now.
Speakers confirmed to date include senior executives from Primrose.co.uk, B&Q, Briers, Bord na Mona, Hillier Nurseries and Garden Centres, Newey Group, Blue Diamond, Scotsdales, mdj2, Ovation Consulting, Malcolm Scott Consultancy, Jersey Plants Direct, Town & Country and Gardman.
