The GCA is hosting its second annual GCA Plant Area Forum for plant area managers and plant buyers. The event will take place at Ball Colegrave on July 20th 2017.
Roger Crookes, who is a GCA inspector is facilitating the event. Roger is the organisation’s Ruxley Rose plant area competition judge this year.
Iain Wylie, GCA Chief Executive, said: “Our first Plant Area Forum last summer was a big hit with all those who attended. It was a highly motivational day and this year’s event promises to be just as inspiring.
Bookings, so far, this year are ahead of last year’s, but we can now take more people if others would like to join us.
“The day will give delegates the chance to see the Ball Colegrave trials grounds and the opportunity to network with like-minded people from garden centres across the country.
The event includes a comprehensive agenda covering ways of maximising plant sales, stock management and benchmarking sales.”
At The Show
At the Forum delegates share ideas and information, discuss the challenges they have faced. They also have the opportunity to analyse sales and profitability and discover potential opportunities.
There are still some places at the GCA Plant Area Forum, which cost £79 per person.
