Glee at Spring Fair preview
Glee at Spring Fair exhibitors reveal plans for the 2019 event
With the second annual Glee at Spring Fair event on the horizon, the show’s exhibitors reveal what garden and giſt buyers can expect to see from this thriving section of the exhibition
uppliers from across the industry will be taking advantage of the opportunity to exhibit some of their latest products at the second iteration of the Glee at Spring Fair showcase, which will be held at Birmingham’s NEC from February 3 to 7 2019. Garden planters and containers supplier
Woodlodge will be using the show as a second opportunity to showcase its expanded Rustic Garden and Feather ranges of pots and planters. Drawing influence from current trends, including the ‘Modern Farmhouse’ trend – considered by Houzz as the biggest interior trend of the last few years – Woodlodge’s new Rustic Garden collection of pots and planters will focus on using more natural materials and alternative colourways. Made up of a mix of weathered woods, natural materials and contrasting earthy tones, the Rustic Garden range harks back to simpler times and creates a feeling of simplicity and harmony in the garden, the company says.
Due to gardeners’ changing needs, smaller outdoor spaces and the increasing demand for products to suit an urban and rental lifestyle, Woodlodge has introduced new designs to its Feather Range, a collection of modern,
innovative, lightweight planters that will create colour in your garden, on your balcony or terrace. Made from 100% recycled durable plastic, this range of planters are also weather resistant and frost-proof meaning they can be left out year-round without fear of chipping, cracking, or fading; making them a smart choice for any garden design.
Creative Products will be showcasing four new products at Glee at Spring Fair. Demonstrating a move away from plastic, the company will be featuring sustainably sourced paper-based packaging where possible. The four new product launches include a new pet mitt which is designed to invigorate the pet’s skin whilst maintaining a clean and healthy coat; the ‘Mighty Little Digger’ - a new gardening tool, which is designed to facilitate digging, loosening and weeding soil; a new grill mat – which ensures food stays crispy on the outside and tender on the inside; and finally, a grey version of the company’s popular Auto Wash Stick.
Creative Products managing director Mark Hall commented: “Glee is the UK’s top garden trade show and as regular exhibitors, we are proud to be able to showcase not only new products but our efforts to move to plastic-free packaging at Glee at Spring Fair.” Fargro will be showing its ranges of indoor and outdoor planters and containers, as well as extended garden decoration and Christmas ranges. The company will be offering a number of unique ranges of product, many lines exclusive to Fargro.
Talking about the company presence at Glee at Spring Fair, Fargro key accounts development manager Kieran Daly said: “We see a very exciting time ahead developing our added value and garden gift ranges. For us, the timing of Glee at Spring Fair is right for launching our new Christmas ranges and highlighting the spring and summer products we originally exhibited at the main Glee exhibition in September.”

Established German barbecue brand Tepro will be making its debut at Glee at Spring Fair in 2019. The company will be using Glee at
Spring Fair to launch a completely new way of cooking with its 800°c Steak Grill, which the company says prepares restaurant quality steak in 90 seconds. Tepro is the first to bring this way of cooking to the mass market in the UK, with an RRP of £299.
The company will also be offering a ‘buy 10 get two free’ promotion exclusively at Glee at Spring Fair, and are encouraging any visitor wanting new product for the 2019 season to make sure they make Tepro part of their Glee at Spring Fair plans as the brand has the stock and facilities to support all sizes of retailer. Tepro key account manager Andrew Harding said: “The timing of Glee at Spring Fair is perfect for this launch, with stock of the new Steak Grill arriving at our Bremen warehouse in March. Whilst we already supply Europe and the UK’s largest retailers with both branded and private label stock, we’re hoping Glee at Spring Fair will get the Tepro Steak Grill off to a flying start with both new and existing retailers. It’s the first completely new BBQ product the market has seen in years.”
