It seems it’s all change for Landscape, Amenity & Horticulture shows as they change dates, venues or even cancel altogether for 2013.
The Landscape Show Have moved from Olympia in March to Battersea Park in September, with a decent exhibitor list already confirmed.
Also running in September, Glee returns to a Sunday-Tuesday format at the NEC, in response to exhibitor and attendees opinion. Again there is a decent exhibitor list confirmed but we have found the show shrinking in size year on year, making us question the viability of time out of the business compared to cost of attending. A puzzle for later in the year!
Meanwhile, as reported on Landscape Juice forum back in the Autumn, British Association of Landscape Industries has cancelled their BALI two-day trade show because of the sliding economy. This show is in it’s infancy with just two years behind it, perhaps starting up as the economy was slowing down? The organisers predict a return in 2014, but are there just too many shows and expos?
If your business offering is Gardening and home and gift products your head will hardly touch your own pillow as you do the rounds of Saltex, Autumn Fair, Glee, Four Oaks and the Landscape show in September!
Of course if you are looking for farm and agricultural machinery, service and equipment, the LammaShow runs 16-17 January at Newark. More details here.
