The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) has announced details of workshop sessions at its annual conference on 18-19 October.
They accompany a strong speaker programme, which includes Sun garden writer Peter Seabrook and motivational speaker Debra Veal MBE, who rowed solo across the Atlantic.
The sessions have been tailored to suit retailers, growers and landscapers. Growers can participate in two workshops, on technical and operational developments and improving productivity. Retailers will have a session on improving business performance and one on reviewing standards, systems and security in a retail environment. Two landscape sessions will look at operating standards, training and business improvement, and at the future of garden design and how landscapers can communicate via the media and other publicity.
HTA director general David Gwyther said: “Delegates will get specific help on how to get more out of their own business. In particular, there will be a lot of guidance on how to improve profitability and how to avoid pitfalls.
“We expect every attendee to get more in profit improvement ideas than the modest amount they would have to pay to attend.”
