Glee, 14-16 September 2021, is the UK’s leading garden and outdoor living trade show, presenting the most exciting brands, innovative products and inspiring garden retail insights.

Time To Grow
It’s time to grow together. After two years apart, Glee will finally return to the NEC Birmingham this September, as we reopen our doors to the garden industry. 2020 has created some real challenges, but it’s also been a year full of opportunity. With the addition of over 3 million budding gardeners entering the industry, gardening as a pastime has well and truly blossomed.
As we look ahead, to 2021 and beyond, now is the time to build on that momentum; it’s time to solidify our community and re-establish our roots as we come back together to trade, learn, collaborate and flourish.
We’ve been working hard pruning and cultivating our look, to bring you a lighter, fresher version of Glee, as we usher in a new mood for a new era. As the light at the end of the tunnel grows ever brighter, we’re buzzing with excitement to reconnect and facilitate face-to-face trade and networking once again.
