About the Glee Buyers Power List

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.

A prestigious awards ceremony is held annually to identify and reward the individuals and buying teams that make an outstanding difference in the industry, we look forward to discovering new names and see some familiar faces in the coming year.

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


What is the list?

The Buyers Power List aims to recognise, celebrate and reward the individuals and buying teams that suppliers and peers in the garden retail industry have nominated and voted for as making an outstanding difference and being highly influential in market.

Who can vote?

Anyone can vote; it is open to all who work within the garden retail industry. There are several different categories, you can vote in just one category or all five if you choose. 

The voting date closes is Friday 25th August.

Voting for your favourite buyer or buying team couldn’t be easier, just fill out the short form, and remember you can vote in as many categories as you like!

Can retailers and buyers vote themselves?
