The Garden Industry Manufacturers Association (GIMA) and The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) are delighted to announce Cultivating Retail – a collaborative one-day event for retailers, suppliers and growers. This event will take place on Tuesday 13 November 2018 at the East Midlands Conference Centre and De Vere Orchard Hotel in Nottingham.
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.
Cultivating Retail takes place at the East Midlands Conference Centre set within the beautifully landscaped parkland of Nottingham University’s campus. This purpose built venue, complete with auditorium, is adjacent to the Orchard Hotel. Built in 2012 this eco-friendly hotel has been awarded a BREEAM rating of excellent and using the latest technology to reduce carbon emissions benefits from plenty of daylight.
