Gardenex organises the British exhibitor group at key international garden trade shows.  For many years we have successfully applied to the Department for International Trade for funding to be available for eligible UK exhibitors.  In 2018 we will take groups to the following:


Cologne, Germany September 2, 2018 - September 4, 2018

spoga+gafa is the world’s premier trade fair for garden hardware and leisure products.  The show features over 2,130 exhibitors from 59 countries and occupies 10 halls.  It is truly international, attracting around 39,000 trade visitors from 113 countries, with over 60% of visitors coming from outside Germany.

If you are a UK company looking to enter or to improve your garden export sales into Europe and beyond, this is the show for you!

Gardenex is once again organising the British exhibitor group at spoga+gafa and has reserved space in a prime location in hall 9, along with individual stands in other halls for specific product groups.   Government grants of £1,500 are available to eligible SMEs to assist with stand costs!  Space is limited; book quickly to secure!



Tokyo, Japan October 10, 2018 - October 12, 2018

Gardex/Ifex is Japan’s largest international trade fair for the garden and outdoor living industries and attracts over 42,000 visitors, making it the perfect opportunity to introduce your products to the Asian market and the only trade show in Japan which provides such a showcase!

The Japanese garden and exteriors markets are worth in excess of US$10 billion.  British products are traditionally highly regarded in Japan as they have a good reputation for quality and Britain is seen as the home of gardening.

Gardenex has organised the British exhibitor group at Japanese shows many times in the past.  Department for International Trade funding is available for eligible British exhibitors at Gardex/Ifex 2018.

Please contact Charlie Parker at Gardenex for more information about exhibiting as part of the British exhibitor group at Gardex/Ifex 2018.


MyPlant & Garden

Milan, Italy February 20, 2019 - February 22, 2019

MyPlant & Garden describes itself as the most important and complete B2B trade fair for garden, landscape and horticulture in Italy.  It took place for the fourth time in 2018, attracting 655 exhibitors over 45,000m² and welcoming around 16,000 trade visitors.

Italy is one of Europe’s leading garden markets, ranked 4th in terms of value by research organisation Euromonitor behind Germany, France and the UK.

Having visited the show this year, Gardenex plans to organise a British exhibitor group at MyPlant & Garden for the first time in February 2019.  Department for International Trade funding of £1,500 is available for eligible British exhibitors at the show.


National Hardware Show (NHS)

Las Vegas, USA May 7, 2019 - May 9, 2019

The long-established National Hardware Show with Lawn, Garden & Outdoor Living (NHS) is North America’s premier trade show for the hardware, DIY and lawn & garden sectors.  Taking place annually in Las Vegas, it attracts over 2,800 exhibitors and 20,000 trade visitors.

Why target the American market?  The US home improvement and DIY sector is worth $343 billion and garden sales are the highest in the world.  Garden Media in 2015 put garden sales at $59 billion while the recent National Gardening Survey estimates $36.9 billion.

For the 74th edition of NHS, and the 23rd occasion that Gardenex has organised the British exhibitor group at this show, we have secured a prime location for the UK pavilion in the North Hall which is almost exclusively lawn & garden products.
