Opening Times and Location

New show layout

Glee has a new home this September, our exciting new location consists of new halls, a new layout and even new features! As with every garden centre and retailer we understand the importance of change; it’s important to keep shop floors varied and that’s exactly what we are doing with Glee this September.  

The Glee refresh gives visitors like you a fantastic opportunity to find your existing suppliers, new potential suppliers and your next best sellers, whilst navigating round our new halls; 6, 7, 8, 19 and 20 with ease.

Pets at Glee

Our newly enhanced show sector, Pets at Glee, has a brand new look and dedicated space at the show this September. Showcasing even more brands and tonnes more fantastic products, the sector will even have its own Seminar stage which will be focussing on the challenges and best practice, that Garden Centres can utilise when implementing and running a pet sector within their stores.

Meeting with key visitors

The International Buyers Connect and the GIMA Buyers Connect are run by Glee’s key show partners GIMA, Gardenex and PetQuip and are speed networking events held during the show. These events connect both international buyers and UK and international sellers in pre-arranged 10-minute speed networking slots.

The aim of both the International Buyers Connect and GIMA Buyers Connect meetings are to be short yet highly effective, presenting key opportunities to make personal contacts with premium brands and manufacturers from across the UK and beyond, and without wasting any precious show time!
