Keeping abreast of the latest trends and innovation is key to ensuring that business stays ahead of its competition. One place that is set to be a rich resource for innovation is Glee where fresh thinking and business boosting ideas are available in abundance.
The Innovators Zone and Glee New Product Awards, are the first port of call for landscapers seeking the ‘next big thing’ for the industry.
The Innovators Zone is designed to provide an at-a-glance chance to source innovative products from entrepreneurs and small-scale manufacturers who are taking their first steps into the market, or making their debut at Glee. The area has attracted a wide range of business start-ups and entrepreneurs, including a selection of landscaping companies. One of the landscaping companies who will be bringing their products to the Glee Innovators Zone is COREgravel UK Ltd – manufacturers, suppliers and installers of eco-friendly surfacing solutions for ground stabilisation, safety marking and water recycling throughout the United Kingdom.
Gavin Dent, UK Manager of COREgravel says: “We’re really looking forward to Glee and the Innovators Zone. As a brand new company – established in early 2010 – the Zone represents for us the opportunity to meet with the most relevant audience. We currently only sell direct to landscapers but understand that the Innovators Zone will provide a platform to investigate opportunities that can ultimately help us develop relationships that could lead to gaining more in-store presence, and also help to develop COREgravel as a recognised brand. The products we sell are highly innovative (glowing gravel etc) so this felt like the best place for us”
Glee show director, Daniel Thurlow told The Landscaper : “Over the coming months we’ll be working to ensure that Glee continues to offer something that no other garden trade show can – from key companies to innovation at every step”.
