Horticulture Week is delighted to announce the year-round benefits to garden retail businesses of entering the leading business awards scheme for 2019 supporting, encouraging and broadcasting business excellence across all areas of the horticulture industry.

Our goal with the prestigious Horticulture Week Business Awards 2019 which recently opened for entries is to honour the achievements of businesses operating in production, garden retail, landscape and more - and to ensure those achievements are recognised by the industry’s customers, clients and stakeholders.

Winning a national Horticulture Week Business Award will provide garden retail businesses with year-long benefits including:

  • A permanent place in Horticulture Week’s online Business Leaders Gallery, ensuring lasting recognition for your achievements.
  • Multiple opportunities throughout the year to share your achievements on Horticulture Week’s print and digital platforms, enabling you to highlight your achievements to a 100,000-strong monthly audience.  This includes editorial on your achievements immediately after the awards presentation, an editorial follow-up profile published 6 months on and inclusion in social media campaigns
  • An exclusive opportunity to participate in Horticulture Week Business Leaders’ Round Tables throughout the year where you will benefit from sharing ideas with leading businesses.  
  • The opportunity to take part in the leading national awards event for the UK horticulture industry, where you will benefit from networking with the leading businesses in the industry.

The Horticulture Week Business Awards 2019  offer a powerful selling point for your business, helping you to market to potential customers as best in class, and industry recognition for your teams, providing you with a powerful staff-motivational tool.
