New Glee feature will showcase industry's top productsExhibitors at next month's Glee are being invited to enter their products for a new Shop Window contest and win the chance to be specially showcased at the exhibition.
The Shop Window will highlight both new and existing products
The judges want to see innovations with the potential to be the next big thing; products promising to boost the profits of any garden retailers that stock them; or products that have already shown longevity and proven their worth.
The Glee Shop Window will therefore highlight the year's best products as well as help buyers to spot and select next year's top sellers.
Each product that wins a place in the new Glee Shop Window feature will have been chosen by a cross-section of industry experts and retailers from entries received before the show. The judges will also be encouraged to keep their eyes peeled at Glee for additional innovative products and ideas that may not have been ready to enter beforehand.
The judges will select short-listed, highly commended and Top Picks products for each of the nine categories to be showcased within the Shop Window. Each product displayed will be accompanied with product information, as well as comments and feedback from the judges as to why they deemed it a great product.
Entry for the Shop Window is now open and free of charge to all Glee exhibitors. The entry form can be downloaded from the exhibitor manual, online at www.gleebirmingham.com, deadline for entries being August 17.
Glee event director Nick Davison commented: "We're taking the basic principle of the old Glee New Product Awards, and are developing this to offer a comprehensive showcase of the best that the industry has to offer. We have no doubt that the Shop Window will fast become one of Glee's leading attractions."
Glee takes place at Birmingham's NEC from September 17-19.
