National Plant 2011 nears two-thirds sold

The HTA has released figures showing a strong level of bookings for next year's National Plant show with the event well over half sold already.

To date 58 companies have booked 78 stands for the show which will take place on 28-9 June 2011 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.

The numbers equate to roughly two thirds of the 123 stands booked by 103 companies this year.

Among the companies already signed up are Wyevale Nurseries, Whetman Pinks, Highland Heathers, Chamberlain Nurseries, Blue Ribbon Plants and Kilworth Conifers.

HTA director of business development Tim Briercliffe said:  "We are delighted that so many exhibitors have already shown their commitment for next year’s show by booking their space in good time. Encouragingly there has also been a great deal of interest from new exhibitors and we anticipate that next year’s show will provide visitors with an even better opportunity to meet with the very best of the UK plant supply chain."
