After a highly successful year, here at LifestyleGarden® we are looking ahead to next season and aiming to further raise our brand profile and bring our fantastic new collection to a wider range of customers. With this aim in mind we are pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting at this year’s gardiente trade fair - ‘Outdoor Living Trends 2018’. This year’s fair takes place from Sunday 9th to Tuesday 11th July at the Messecenter Main-Rhein exhibition centre in Hofheim-Wallau, Germany.
Now in its 4th year, the exhibition showcases the latest trends, developments and innovations in the fields of garden furniture, parasols, BBQ, textiles and accessories and is well attended by major players and industry leaders. Since the first gardiente fair in 2014, the number of exhibitors has more than doubled and this year over 90 brands from the garden and outdoor living sector will be present.
Despite this growth, gardiente has retained the intimate and casual atmosphere that differentiates it from some of the larger trade fairs, as outlined by Lothar Giesen, Managing Director of ScanCom Germany: “Beyond presenting our exciting new products and seeing some of the emerging trends in the industry, there are other features that make gardiente a key event in the garden industry calendar. One of the major advantages is the relaxed and unhurried atmosphere that facilitates more in-depth discussion between customers and ourselves. Unlike some of the larger trade fairs, which can be very busy and hectic, the scaled-down size means that visitors are not in a rush and there is ample time and opportunity to develop lines of communication with buyers or decision makers.
“The scheduling of the event is also significant: mid July is an ideal point for the garden furniture industry to see forthcoming trends and plan ahead, as any later in the year and the outdoor living season has been and gone. Discussions can be more detailed and we are able to discover exactly what customers require and expect and deliver the right product for the right price at the right time.
“In addition, there’s also a programme of useful workshops and networking events built into the 3 days which offer valuable insights and analysis regarding important and relevant issues from across the industry. Collaboration and partnership are cornerstones of ScanCom’s corporate vision of Doing Business the Right Way and such events really allow us to relaxed atmosphere allowing us to forge new relationships and strengthen existing ones.”
