What some of our exhibitors have to say…
 

“It is fantastic to be at GLAS, it is great to get out and meet everybody in the industry, catching up with so many people is great, altogether it is a great day and there is a great buzz about the place”.
Angela Slevin, Kelly’s Nursery
“GLAS gives us a chance to meet our customers and launch what we believe is an exciting new product to the market”.
John Blessing, Growbox
“GLAS is great to showcase our plants to our customers for next year, but more importantly, to listen to what our customers need.”
Niamh Tully, Tully Nurseries
“Trade shows, in particular GLAS, are a really nice way to get exposure to retailers that we want to reach; independent garden centres would be an important sector for us to reach and we can do that here. To win best product gives us great confidence, but to get recognition from GLAS gives us even greater confidence to sell it to our retailers and buyers.”
Elisha Daniels, Hygeia Garden Care
”GLAS brings together all of the top professionals in one place. It is nice to have all of our current and potential customers under one roof, they are not just here to see our products but others as well, so it is a great opportunity to meet.”
Eugene O’Reilly, Bord Na Móna Horticulture
