Networking events at flower shows
Meet GMG members at Malvern Spring and Gardeners' World Live
The Malvern Spring Festival has great plans this year with more specialist nurseries, larger show and feature gardens and its biggest ever Floral Marquee! Join GMG colleagues at our networking event in the Plant Finder Parlour on Thursday 11 May from 10am (after the formal briefing in the press office) until 11.15.
Key exhibitors and show contributors will be there to talk to, along with some local up-and-coming stars. This is a great opportunity to meet the show’s key personalities and fellow members. Jess Cook from Malvern's Silver Ball PR has also promised some Buck’s Fizz, tea, coffee and pastries.
Meanwhile, to mark the 50th anniversary of Gardeners’ World we have been invited to hold a GMG networking event at BBC Gardeners’ World Live on Wednesday, 14 June from 2.00pm until 3.30 in the Gardeners Restaurant. Show garden judges will join us before they set off to officiate, along with key exhibitors and the show’s horticultural director Bob Sweet.
The meeting will end at 3.30, when we will be free to look around the show (prior to 3.30 the site is still in build-up ‘lock down’). Guild members are also invited to join the Press Preview Garden Awards drinks reception at 5pm.
If you would like to attend please email Ian Thwaites to be placed on the list. You will also need a press pass from the Gardeners' World Live press office. Numbers for both events are limited so please apply early. It is a prerequisite that your GMG web profile is up to date and that you have uploaded a profile image!
