Glee Buyers Power List 2018

The Buyers Power List is Glee’s own way of celebrating the outstanding talent of buyers in the garden retail industry and their influence on the market.

The awards ceremony is held annually during Glee to identify and reward the individuals and buying teams that make an outstanding difference in the gardening world.

We ask the industry to help us in our hunt for the best. If you're a supplier, exhibitor, retailer or press, we want to know who you think the best buyers in the industry are!
