Who will be the winners in the Glee New Product Awards, in association with GTN, for 2020? Despite Glee not taking place for real at the NEC the teams at Glee and Garden Trade News are pulling out all the stops with Glee Gathering "exhibitors" to create a virtual showcase of New Products for 2021.

Glee Gathering
Glee Gathering is a two-day digital experience designed to inspire whilst engaging buyers and connecting our community together.

The Glee Gathering will host a virtual showroom of the exhibitors, engaging product showcases, exclusive content sessions and panel discussions, a platform to connect buyers and suppliers in a one-to-one environment, and the 2020 New Product Awards. 

Virtual showcase of New Products  
All Glee Gathering "exhibitors" have the opportunity to enter up to five new products in each of the following categories:

  • Garden Plants, Seeds and Bulbs
  • Garden Growing Materials (Plant feeds, pest and weed control, growing media, cloches, seed trays etc)

A team of judges, led by GTN's Trevor Pfeiffer, will sift through all of the entries, submitted on-line with pictures and videos, and select a shortlist for each category that will be announced on Monday 14th September in Glee Daily News.

Then, during the Glee Gathering, 15th and 16th September, representatives of the three shortlisted products in each category will have the opportunity to "pitch" via live video to the judges, and the assembled Glee Gathering Audience, before they make their final decisions on the winners.
