Meet the Buyers event attracts companies from Iceland, Romania, Switzerland and Serbia

A Romanian importer/distributor/landscape company has now joined the influential buyers from across Europe who will attend the latest ‘Meet the Buyers’ event to be held at the Gardenex and PetQuip offices in Brasted, Kent. The event on 21 October 2015 is now open to UK suppliers of gardening and pet care products.

The full list of overseas buyers travelling to the UK for one-to-one meetings with British suppliers now includes representatives from an Icelandic garden centre/wholesaler, a Swiss garden centre and a Romanian importer/distributor landscape company, all on the gardening side. The Icelandic buyer is also seeking pet products, as will a Swiss importer/wholesaler and a Serbian importer/distributor.

The Federation holds a series of ‘Meet the Buyers’ events each year, and in the past these have resulted in British garden, leisure and pet product firms securing significant initial and repeat international sales in a wide variety of overseas markets.  

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 slots fill up fast.  Full details of how to book for the individual buyer meetings will be available soon and you can register interest by emailing Emma Lewis on email: or
