Hozelock confirms return to Glee 2015

Ultra Twist lifestyle lawn sprinklerIt has been confirmed that Hozelock, one of the most recognisable garden care and watering brands in the UK today, is set to make its return to Glee in 2015, following a break of several years.


The global specialists in garden watering solutions, Hozelock will be a must-see part of 2015 show. Come September the company will be using Glee to showcase its 2016 product introductions and versatile ranges across its garden watering, weed control and aquatics collections.


i2i’s Matthew Mein, Glee event manager said: “The rumours are true – Hozelock is back at Glee 2015! We’re obviously incredibly pleased to be welcoming them back to the show, not only because they will be bringing an unrivalled selection of garden watering products with them, but their presence also demonstrates the strength of Glee’s revised offering today.


“Hozelock’s return comes at a time of growth for Glee. The 2014 show was a huge success, and saw Glee step out of the shadow of its previous incarnation and emerge as a refreshed, revitalised and harder working show than ever before. It is great to see that the changes we’re making are appealing to those brands that may not have seen value in exhibiting at Glee in recent years.  Being able to welcome so many of them back is testament to the hard work and ongoing commitment to change that underpins all our development plans for the show. I’ve no doubt that the return of Hozelock will add an exciting new element to Glee’s overall offering, whilst also providing retailers with even more reasons to make visiting the show an essential part of their year.”


Commenting on its return to Glee, Hozelock’s Carol Wright, Marketing Manager said: “As the UK’s number one garden watering brand, we are delighted to be attending Glee once again. It is an ideal platform for our 2016 new product launches, so visitors can experience first-hand the real innovation that they have come to expect from Hozelock. With our British manufacturing heritage, unrivalled development expertise and true passion for gardening, we can promise exciting times ahead for retailers.”
