The event, first announced at the HTA Garden Futures Conference last year, aims to provide a mix of strategic and inspirational content from external speakers, panel sessions tackling supply chain issues and topic led seminars providing practical ‘take home’ ideas for all delegates. Throughout the event there will be plenty of opportunity for networking which will continue at the business dinner in the evening.
