Horti Fair: British presence remains strong

This year's Horti Fair was smaller than in the past but UK exhibitors maintained their presence.

Bird Stevens managing director Steve Ruston was upbeat: "We are definitely benefitting from the exchange rate - maybe this is the time to buy British."

Glasgow-based Smart Tech chairman Professor Neil Graham agreed: "We have been pleased with the contacts we have made."

Attendance this year was 34,043, down 29 per cent on 2008. Organisers have pledged to continue the show until 2012.
