Ireland is to get a new garden and leisure show this year. There will be a slight crossover with the Kildare Growers’ Show but organisers say they are not aiming to rival it.
Gold 2005 will be held on 9-10 November at the CityWest Convention Centre in County Dublin. The 150-exhibitor, trade-only show is Garden Specialist magazine publisher Chris Walter’s idea.He said: “I’ve had this idea knocking around for over a year and have spent six months talking to buyers across Europe to see if they are interested. We had an overwhelming ‘yes’ and the added boost is that the garden leisure industry is booming here.
“We expect the people coming to Gold 2005 will be big buyers and we are confident we will put on a good show for them. Some will be coming from the former iron curtain countries and many do not visit Glee or Gafa/Spoga.”
“We do not see ourselves as a rival to the Kildare Growers’ Show. That is mainly a horticultural show, while ours will be a mainly outdoor living show. We will be showing goods such as Celtic furniture and Polish decking.”
