Fire, Grill & Chill

Fire, Grill & Chill

We launched a brand-new Outdoor Entertainment demo area, Fire, Grill & Chill at the back of Hall 20, for you to soak up the summer sun and see some grills in action. We also hosted the first Glee Party, where exhibitors, visitors, partners and the Glee team got together to enjoy some music and complimentary drinks. 

Giving at Glee

Giving at Glee

Sustainability and wellbeing are at the centre of Glee, which is why we launched Giving at Glee, a series of initiatives that gave back to the community. We hosted Floral Thursday on the Stage and helped raise money for the Greenfingers charity. We've also partnered with Grow My Tree where all Glee attendees were given the opportunity to plant their own tree as part of this initiative.

New Product Showcase

New Product Showcase

One of Glee’s most popular features, the New Product Showcase is the place to discover the most innovative and new ideas in the garden industry. We received 350 entries this year from exhibitors, which is the biggest yet. All featured products were also entered into the New Product Awards competition.

Buyers Power List

Buyers Power List

The Buyers Power List is a celebration of the retailers making an impact within the garden retail industry. It’s our way of saying thank you, as we recognise the outstanding talent of buyers and their influence on the market. We celebrated retailers from across the industry during the first day of Glee, as we held the Buyers Power List Awards ceremony.
