Hyve Group announce changes to their 2020 show calendar
Hyve, the organiser of Glee, the UK’s leading garden and outdoor living trade show, today announce changes to the scheduled event in 2020.
As a reflection on conversations between the organisers and the garden retail market, Hyve made the decision that Glee 2020 will not take place this year. Glee will return as a live event at the NEC in 2021.
The team behind Glee are excited to host a virtual forum for the garden retail market this autumn, taking place on 15 and 16 September 2020. More information on this online event will be available on the website in due course.
‘We have been listening to both our exhibitors and visitors, and the feedback from garden retailers has been incredibly supportive of Glee. That has enabled us to take a fresh approach and bring the community together through the launch of a brand-new virtual forum.” says Matthew Mein, Event Director – Glee and Pawexpo. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to provide a new platform for interactive industry discussions and product discovery. We are also looking forward to when the industry can meet again in person both at Glee at Spring Fair in February 2021, and Glee and Pawexpo 2021 taking place 14-16 September.”
“We’re delighted that Glee is launching a virtual forum”, says Boyd Douglas-Davies, P.R. & Communications Director, British Garden Centres Group. “We are looking forward to fully engaging with this in September. Glee is such a pivotal point in the year, missing a year was never an option for us. We wish Glee’s virtual forum every success and look forward to meeting everyone in person again in 2021.”
More information will be available on the website in due course. Glee will continue to provide webinars, industry news and digital content that keeps the garden retail community informed and connected on The Community hub.
