Horticultural exhibition attracts eager exhibitors for 2010
by Annie Byrne
The organiser of horticultural exhibition Four Oaks Trade Show, Coutts Events, says stability is the key to an early sell out of exhibitor space.Two weeks before the show opens, over 460 exhibitors have taken up the entire 13,000sqm floor space, of which 118 are brand new and 139 are from overseas."Our permanent home at the Cheshire Nursery enables us to provide a high level of customer support and stability that events in hired venues struggle to match," says event director, Pat Coutts. "We’ll have a vast range of plants or manufactured products covered this year."Coutts says she’s seen a trend for larger and more upmarket stands too. "Some exhibitors have also come back this year to exhibit independently, rather than participate as part of a conglomerate," she adds.Four Oaks Trade Show takes place on 7 to 8 September at Four Oaks Nurseries, Cheshire.
