LONDON, UK: The garden industry is undergoing unprecedented change, from the way it sources its plant and garden product offering for its audience, to the way it distributes that offering to gardening consumers. In response to these changes, Horticulture Week, the UK’s leading horticultural news source, will be hosting a special industry event called The Garden Retail Supply Chain Summit.The event will take place on Thursday 26th February 2015 at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
The Garden Retail Supply Chain Summit will investigate the key drivers of this change including omni-channel retailing, the growth of high street gardening, plant supply post 2012/13 and the rapidly expanding product supply base – and assess how these drivers are shaping the industry of tomorrow.
The summit will focus on three main topics:
Supplying the Consumer – New Routes to Market
Supplying the Planteria
Supplying the Store
