Gifts, homeware and outdoor clothing are increasingly becoming big business within garden retail. Offering an unrivalled opportunity to maximise year-round sales, from Mother's Day to Christmas, these product categories are also ideal for driving impulse sales as consumers look to add value to their homes and gardens with stylish accessories, as well as wanting to look good in the garden. Recognising this, the organisers of Glee (10th - 12th September, NEC Birmingham) have introduced the new Home & Gift Village, designed to help niche suppliers, start-up brands and smaller companies to better showcase their wares to Glee's 7,000 plus annual visitors.
This new Home & Gift Village will provide home and gift suppliers with the opportunity to participate and exhibit as part of a larger group. Offering exclusive exhibition packages, exhibitors within the Home & Gift Village will be able to enjoy an enhanced shell stand exhibition space, a listing within the Glee website and the show’s dedicated preview and catalogue.
The close proximity of the Home & Gift Village to the show’s leading feature, the Retail Lab, will also mean great footfall from a range of buyers and key decision makers from a wide range of independent and multiple garden centres.
The Home & Gift Village has also been designed to complement the wider presence of Home, Gift and Clothing exhibitors at Glee 2019. Offering core ranges, plus added value product lines such as clothing ranges, picnicware and seasonal decorations, plus games, toys and books, Glee Home, Gift and Clothing will be home to brands such as Apac Group, Allsorted, Austin Sloan, Baltus, Bolla Bags, Cheeky Rascals, Chive, Earth Squared, Enigma, Fancy Metal Goods, First Person Ltd, Global 1st, Hellmann-Versand GmbH, Henderson (J & K) Enterprises Ltd, Hills Interiors, Julie Dodsworth, Luxa Flamelighting, Nääsgränsgården, Neat Ideas, Nova Leathers (Bristol) Ltd, Pantherella, Price's Patent Candles, Red Cuckoo, Sincere, Sunlover, The Great British Card Company, The Healthy Back Bag Company, The Ready Made Picture Frame Company, Tilnar Art, Troop London (UK), Ultimate Products, and Wheelie Klips.
