The CHA participated in IPM 2024 and praises the event for its "global status and quality audience."

Jeremy Watkinson of PPC labels presented their Trolley POS, which has become more popular over the years.

Jeremy Watkinson, Managing Director of PPC Labels, comments: "The show has been good in terms of new customers and existing growers mainly, with some garden center groups from the UK, Ireland, Italy, Kuwait, and Denmark. IPM is the best show in Europe for ornamental horticulture and is the most important show that we do."

The team of David Austin presented a new 6-litre branded pot, with their new logo, QR code, and POS material of recycled material, which is also recyclable.

Kate Porter, Head of International Partner Network, David Austin Roses, says: "We have connected with existing contacts and had meaningful conversations with contacts to develop following on from the show. It's been a great place to showcase the new material we've launched. There's nothing else like it in terms of international reach for our team - it's the only show that offers the opportunity to draw international visitors."

Andrew Jeanes, International Sales and Marketing Manager of The Guernsey Clematis Nursery/Raymond Evison Clematis complimented the event on its global reach: "The quality of visitors has been very, very good. We've had good conversations with existing and new clients. IPM is a very important show, being a global brand and stands alone – we don't do any other international shows, as this is truly worldwide."

Anthony Long from Garden Centre Design Consultancy – C Long Design Studios also praised the quality of attendance: "IPM draws a multi-national, not just a European audience. We have done the show for 20 years, and it is the most plant-focused of meeting places. We bring customers here – we brought four from the USA and seven from the Slavic Baltic states."
