Glee invites new product entries

Glee has reintroduced its new product showcase at Glee (15–17 September, NEC Birmingham) and has requested entries for exhibitors.

This year the showcase will feature entries from eight product categories, with winners decided by a judging panel made up of a cross-section of industry experts and retailers. Product categories include:

  • Best Garden Care Product
  • Best Landscaping & Garden Design Product
  • Best Nursery & Planteria Product
  • Best Garden Leisure Product
  • Best Home, Gift & Clothing Product
  • Best Retail Support Product
  • Best Pet Product
  • New for 2013 is the Retailers Best Product Award – voted for by Glee visitors during the show

Glee event manager Matthew Mein said: "Following significant industry feedback since the close of Glee 2012, it became apparent that the industry wants and needs a dedicated new product showcase at the show, in order to better source and celebrate the wealth of innovation throughout the industry.

"The Glee New Products Showcase is always an exciting part of the show, and we have no doubt that reintroducing the original format will once again create a real buzz around the show.  I am also particularly excited to see the results of the retailers vote.  This is the first time that visitors to the show can cast their own vote, so the results will no doubt generate debate and discusssion."
