Exports of British garden products are set for a substantial boost following the success of more than 20 UK companies exhibiting in the Gardenex-organised group at spoga+gafa, which returned in impressive style to Cologne, Germany, last month.
The British firms were supported before and during the show by the experienced events and research team from Gardenex and early reports confirm that worldwide enquiries have been received, export orders have been won and valuable overseas distributorships secured.
The positive outcome brought the following response from Amanda Sizer Barrett, director general of Gardenex: “The exhibition proved successful for all the companies participating in the Gardenex exhibitor group. We have already received positive feedback on the excellent business support the federation’s team provided throughout, as well as requests to rebook space for 2023 from this year’s exhibitors and enquiries from companies wishing to join Gardenex and take part in gafa next year.”
The British gardening industry information stand hosted by Gardenex attracted unprecedented interest from overseas buyers during the show.
