The Retailers Have Spoken – Glee Retailers Choice Awards Winners Announcement

The retailers have spoken, and together they have chosen this year's winner of the New Products Retailers Choice Award 2014, in association with the HTA.

2013 marked the first time that visitors to Glee could select the products that they feel offer the most exciting opportunity for retailers – whether as a profit booster, crowd pleaser or simply because it offers something unique. 2014's voting took place throughout the Sunday and Monday of the show, with the final count culminating in a special awards announcement on the morning of the final day of Glee 2014 (16th September), where the HTA's Carol Paris handed over the award.

And the winner is.....

This year's winner was selected from the 300 plus new products that were showcased within Glee's new central Hub area (Hall 20, stand G10). Voting was a fiercely fought competition with several products capturing the attention of Glee's garden retail audience. There was, however, one product that clearly stood out from the rest, and as a result will be crowned this year's Glee Retailers Choice Award, in association with the HTA – that winner is Nordic Garden Buildings with the Veranda Summerhouse (Hall 20, stand C30-D31).

The Veranda Summerhouse received such praise as 'beautifully designed', great price point', and 'high quality build and materials', helping Nordic Garden Buildings to scoop the award for the second year running, an exciting industry accolade for any brand.

i2i's Matthew Mein, Glee event manager said: "The Veranda Summerhouse is most deserving of its place on this year's Glee New Products winners list. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to cast their vote, and also thank all of those companies that entered a product into the awards. Together you have made for another exciting, and closely fought, showcase of the best the industry has to offer."

Organised by i2i Events Group, Glee is the UK's leading garden trade buying event, currently in its 40th successful year. 2014 has marked a new chapter for the exhibition, as it has successfully relocated to a new location within the NEC's Halls 17 – 20. This move has helped to breathe new life into the show by creating fresh exhibiting, feature and visitor opportunities.
