Brookes & Co battle the snow for Garden Press Event 2018!
Last week’s snowy weather couldn’t stop the Brookes & Co team as they headed to London for the Garden Press Event 2018, the unique exhibition where visitors are made up solely of members of the gardening press.

Back for its 13th year, 2018 saw the event relocate to a new home at London’s impressive Business Design Centre – a move that seemed to go down well with visitors and exhibitors. Despite the blizzard outside, over 100 exhibitors and countless writers, editors, journalists and bloggers from across the country flocked to the event to get their sneak peek at the newest products for the 2018 gardening season.

With some of our clients attending this year’s show, the Brookes team was kept busy drumming up as much attention to their stands. Creative Products’ innovative gardening solutions seemed to go down well with visitors, with the clever Badger Paw Garden Gloves with their unique built in ‘claws’ attracting a lot of attention. We also had a great time partying with Grange to celebrate their 150th anniversary and the launch of their sophisticated new brochure.

In between chatting with journalists and clients and enjoying a sneaky slice of birthday cake with Grange, the team also managed to get around to speak to a lot of new and familiar faces and have a snoop at some of the top products to look out for, for spring/summer 2018. It was great to catch up with Bathgate team and we were very excited to hear from National Children’s Gardening Week – we can’t wait to get some of our clients involved in May!

After battling our way back home through the snow and ice, we’re now warming up back in the office and already putting plans in place for next year’s Garden Press Event.
