As a reflection on conversations between Hyve, the organiser of Glee, and the community it serves, Hyve have taken the decision that Glee 2020 will not take place this year and will return as an in-person event in 2021.
They have listened to the Glee community and whilst the industry supports Glee, the preferred choice in 2020 is to connect in a virtual environment.
Hyve are now working closely with our partners and clients to deliver a unique virtual forum for product discovery and interactive industry discussions that will connect the garden retail market, taking place on 15 and 16 September 2020.
