Benefits of Membership


Gardenex has launched a new Group Visit service. Our aim is to offer exporters a low-cost way to undertake initial research into an overseas market, or explore its potential, before committing to exhibit at a trade show there.

This service offers exporters the opportunity to travel out to an international market as part of an accompanied group of like-minded exporters, led by one of the Gardenex experienced research team.

The programme would usually coincide with an industry trade event. Participants benefit from a package of services including receiving:

Market overview information in advance of the visit.

A list of key distributors and other contacts to make appointments to visit at the industry trade event.

Details of relevant press contacts and other sources of market information.

A map and directions to retailers of garden products in the area (if numbers sufficient, this could be enhanced by a group retail tour).

A market briefing will be arranged, where possible, with the local UKTI commercial officer and/or industry contacts (subject to minimum number of participants).

Exclusive Gardenex buyer/distributor database information for the market to be visited.

Advice on hotels, travel options, interpreters, visa procedures etc where appropriate.

Access to the advice, knowledge and contacts provided by one of the experienced Gardenex team throughout the visit.

The precise content of the package will vary depending on the nature of the show and the market. Participants will be responsible for their own travel, accommodation and subsistence costs.

Please email Charlie at Gardenex or call on: 01959 565995 for more information.
