Plans for the 2018 National Plant Show are already well underway with a refreshed floorplan, feature areas and brand.
We are pleased to announce that Britain and Ireland’s premier plant show will be returning again for 2018, on 19 and 20 June at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry. Alongside will sit the HTA Nursery Supply Show in its 2nd year.
The 8th HTA National Plant Show was a huge success in 2017 with exhibitor and visitor numbers up yet again. We received excellent feedback from both attendees and exhibitors and see over 140 stands already booked for the 2018 event.
“A great opportunity to meet key garden retail buyers and be seen”
The Show provides visitors with the opportunity to see thousands of plant varieties from over 100 UK growers all under one roof. The Show’s back to basics approach ensures the spotlight shines purely on the plants at the best time of year in order for visitors to plan their ranges for the following seasons. Following post event feedback from visitors and exhibitors we now have more focused and revitalised feature areas including our Inspirational Retail Concept Experience, The Glasshouse café, HTA Village, Hortipak Hub and much more.
We will also have more catering and beverage options for exhibitors and visitors than ever before so you can fuel up with ease throughout the day and a new earlier start time at 9am giving visitors even longer in the halls. This will also be complimented by an improved bus shuttle service which stops at Birmingham Airport, Coventry and Warwick Parkway and enhanced bus stop signage.
The event will also feature a new look easy navigation New Plant Awards section which will also include a session in the seminar area highlighting the category winners and supreme winner and what our judges felt made these the winning plants and why retailers should look to place orders and enhance their ranges. The seminar area will feature speakers and other activity.

Registration opens in January 2018.
