Kicking off the 2020 gardening season, over 100 exhibitors showcased their new products and stories in front of the garden media at the last Garden Press Event, which took place at the Business Design Centre in London on Wednesday 4 March 2019. Around 300 journalists, bloggers, feature writers and other members of the media attended the busy event, jointly owned by HTA and GIMA, to find out about the latest trends and products for 2020. Sustainability, concern for the environment, wellbeing and getting young people involved in gardening were key themes that were highlighted throughout the day.
There were a record number of exhibitors, including exhibitors from Holland, Germany & Belgium.
Media Feedback from this years Garden Press Event
The Garden Press Event is essential for me to up date on all that is going on in horticulture. Already Exhibitors have gained publicity from my visit.
Peter Seabrook – The SUN
A huge thank you to those exhibitors, who shared their gardening secrets, launches and ranges and apologies to the many I failed to catch up with. It's a must visit show for our busy schedules.
Jean Vernon – Garden Writer Daily Telegraph
I always find the Garden Press Event really useful, it is held just at the right time as we start our summer garden features then and it is good to know the trends ahead of Chelsea.

My first visit to this fabulous event. A great collection of contacts and new products and a must-visit date for your gardening calendar.
