Meet Swiss, Serbian and Icelandic buyers at Pet Quip event
The latest opportunity to meet with influential buyers from across Europe is now open to manufacturers of gardening and pet care products.

Buyers recruited so far for the ‘Meet the Buyers’ event, organised by the Gardenex and PetQuip associations, include two distributors of pet care products from Serbia and Switzerland.  Looking to source garden products will be a distributor from Iceland and a Swiss retailer.

The Federation is still recruiting further overseas buyers for the business networking day, which is to be held on Wednesday 21 October 2015 at its offices in Brasted, Kent. 

The Federation holds a series of ‘Meet the Buyers’ events each year that have resulted in British garden, leisure and pet product firms securing significant initial and repeat international sales in a wide variety of overseas markets.  The one-to-one meetings formula of the events has been applauded by UK suppliers and overseas buyers as being a cost-effective and proven way of creating positive and lasting business relationships.

If you are interested in the ‘Meet the Buyers’ event on 21 October, UK suppliers are encouraged to contact the Federation as quickly as possible as meeting places fill up fast.  Full details of how to register for the individual buyer meetings will be available soon but you can register interest by emailing Emma Lewis on email: or

Gardenex and PetQuip are divisions of The Federation of Garden and Leisure Manufacturers Ltd, the trade association that works on behalf of British companies to help its members increase sales worldwide.
