Glee Unveils Move to Summer in 2022!
There is great anticipation in the garden retail sector for the long-awaited return of Glee in just a few weeks time.
This is scheduled to be an 'in-person event', with suppliers and retailers set to reconnect and create new opportunities at this year’s show.
June Dates for 2022
Building on this fresh momentum, the Glee team has confirmed that the 2022 event will move to a new date in order to meet the ever-developing needs of the garden retail sector. As a result, Glee 2022 will take place June 28th - 30th.
Over several months, the Glee team undertook an in-depth consultation with key stakeholders, representing suppliers, retailers and trade associations.
Supply Chain Reset
The outcome of these discussions was that a shift to a different time of year would better reflect, and support, the ongoing development of the garden retail supply chain and associated buying cycles.
The Glee team’s realigned timing of the show has already garnered support from across the sector. Exhibitors consulted about the date change said they whole-heartedly support the move.
Martin Simmons, Director of Membership at the HTA, said: “The HTA has had a long association with Glee having been the main supporter of the Retail Lab feature in recent years and the significant involvement in its seminar programme.”
“Equally, Glee is a strong supporter of the National Plant Show*, and both organisations recognise the unique benefits of each event and what they provide for our industry. We look forward to working with Glee on what we’re confident will be a very busy and successful show season in 2022.”
