The Exhibition News Awards return to Evolution London, Battersea Park on 20th March 2020 to showcase outstanding achievement within the UK and global exhibition industry. This year, amongst the audience, will be representatives from the Glee organising team as the garden retail exhibition’s ‘Retail Lab’ has been shortlisted for an award.
Billed as ‘serious awards, seriously celebrated’ a shortlisted nomination at the Exhibition Awards is an outstanding recognition for the Glee team. Three years in the making, the 2019 Retail Lab is up against eight other shortlisted entries in the category of ‘Best Feature Area’. This award celebrates on-site features that provide a point of difference and add value to the visitor journey at the show.
The Retail Lab – created in partnership with the HTA, Romeo Sommers of ByRomeo as Creative Director, and GES as build contractors who made the concept come to life - has enjoyed a central role in the development of Glee since 2017. The feature was introduced to showcase the latest trends within garden retailing, whilst also providing retailers with hands on advice and inspirational content that they can take back to their own stores to drive sales in the coming season. The shop-in-a-shop style layout provides a central point of inspiration at the exhibition, one that drew praise from the whole supply chain.
