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 2019 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.
