The 2021 Garden Press Event Goes Virtual

The Garden Press Event in March 2021 has fallen victim to Coronavirus.  The industry event for the gardening press will continue online only.

The following announcement is on its website:

The Business Design Centre are no longer able to hold large exhibitions until further notice. We can therefore confirm that we are not able to hold our usual Garden Press Event in 2021.

The health and safety of the show's exhibitors, visitors and staff is paramount, and this is the best course of action to keep everyone safe. This is of course extremely disappointing, and we will be rolling bookings already made into March 2022.

Virtual Event

As we are unable to hold our usual event in 2021, we are planning a virtual event on 3 March 2021, this will be different to our usual format but we still hope to create plenty of networking opportunities for everyone.

A virtual event will give exhibitors a platform to showcase their company and products whilst speaking directly to members of the media.

About the Garden press Event

Founded by Richard Jackson Chair of Greenfingers and Guy Burtenshaw in 2006, the event was set up to bring together suppliers of garden products, with trade and consumer editors from both print and broadcast outlets. The only event of its kind for the industry, the Garden Press Event has grown in popularity, with over 110 exhibitors (including a host of international brands).

The show is now owned and run by GIMA & HTA who work together to create content and value for both visitors and exhibitors.

The Garden Press Event 2021 is an ideal opportunity to highlight your stories, plants, products and range early in the season and network directly with the leading writers from the National and Trade Press, Garden and Home Interest Magazines and TV and Radio Garden Broadcasters.

Since its beginnings the Garden Press Event has supported Greenfingers, a small national charity creating magical gardens in children’s hospices around the UK. It continues to do so through the generosity of its exhibitors who donate the fee of exhibiting in the new product area to this worthy cause.
