UK Trade Stands 2017
UK Trade Stands are an important part of The Garden Furniture Centres promotional campaign throughout the year.
Last years Trade Stands across the UK were an immense success particularly at the RHS where we won a number of Trade Stand Awards.
The video below shows the fantastic atmosphere on our Chelsea Muse Themed Trade Stand at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show last year in 2016.
Initially, when we first started exhibiting at Show Trade Stands way back in 2012, our efforts were focused around the RHS Flower Shows because we found these offered the best audience for our high quality brand of outdoor furniture and accessories.
However, as time and the general success of our exhibits has increaesed we have broadened our horizons dramatically and our presence now includes the likes of The Ideal Home Show, Grand Designs Live, BBC Gardeners World Live and The Boat Show in both London and Southampton.
Below is a full list of the shows we are at in 2017 with some infomational links to give you a flavour of what to expect.

BBC Countryfile Live ...
After the hugely popular first BBC Countryfile Live Event in 2016 the organisers have confirmed their second Live Show in August 2017 at the very impressive Blenheim Palace - and we're really proud to announce that we are going to be there. Countryfile is Britain's most watched factual television programme and it makes sense for them to expand their reach to a live audience. The BBC Countryfile website sums the aims of the event perfectly ...
"The aim of the event is to bring the award-winning elements of this very popular programme to a live audience in an educating and entertaining environment. Countryfile Live will enable visitors to explore every aspect of the British countryside through a series of hands-on activities, talks and unique interactive features. Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the inaugural event throughout an action packed 4-day open period."

And, as we speak, we're in negotiations with the organisers of other shows across the UK in the 2017 calendar.
So, you just never know when we'll turn up at a venue near you ...
Trade Stand Show Stoppers ...
There are certain products from our massive range that don't fail to get loads of attention when they make Trade Stand appearances.
The Mighty Apple Day Bed always attracts heaps of admirers, often stopping them in their tracks as they're passing by the Stand
The Four Seasons Gazebo, with its contemporary and practical design that makes it one of the best gazebos on the market for all year use, is a good crowd-puller as well. In fact, it's that popular at the Shows and online that we've recently expanded the range to incorporate a number of variations on this highly contemporary design. View The Four Seasons Range.
And, if we're blatantly honest, it makes a great place to shelter - both for us and the show-goers - if it happens to rain!
And then there's the Luxor Range, which has grown rapidly in its popularity since its first outing at the Boat Show in January 2015.
And not forgetting the Outdoor Rattan Sofa Sets. Hand woven in a variety of stunning outdoor weaves with sumptuous, high-spec cushions to match the public just can't resist settling in and giving them a try.
Who can blame them - we do the same during the quieter times on the Trade Stands to give our aching feet a well earned rest.
Competitions and Free Fizz ...
Our UK Trade Stands aren't all about selling Garden Furniture; we like to do our bit for the festival atmosphere as well.
We always offer the chance to win a fabulous prize in our Trade Stand Competitions that are only open to people who attend the Show. Entry is simple and just involves placing a completed entry with your details into the Competition Post Box located prominently on each stand.
We quite often crack open the fizz as well in order to offer our visitors a complimentary glass of ice cold bubbly which always goes down well - particularly on a hot summers day.
If you've got a visit planned to any of the Shows detailed on the map above then please, feel free to make a bit of time to soak up The Garden Furniture UK Trade Stand Experience on your way round.
