Who will be the winners in the Glee New Product Awards, in association with GTN, for 2020? Despite Glee not taking place for real at the NEC the teams at Glee and Garden Trade News are pulling out all the stops with Gee Gathering "exhibitors" to create a virtual showcase of New Products for 2021.
All Glee Gathering 'exhibitors' have the opportunity to enter up to five new products in each of the following categories:
Garden Plants, Seeds and Bulbs
Garden Growing Materials (Plant feeds, pest and weed control, growing media, cloches, seed trays etc)
Garden Leisure & Entertaining (BBQ's, garden furniture and accessories etc)
Garden Wild Bird and Wildlife Products (Wild bird feeds, feeders, wild life products etc)
Garden Home, Giftware and Clothing
Garden Retail & Industry Services
A team of judges, led by GTN's Trevor Pfeiffer, will sift through all of the entries, submitted on-line with pictures and videos, and select a shortlist for each category that will be announced on Monday 14th September in Glee Daily News.
Then, during the Glee Gathering, 15th and 16th September, representatives of the three shortlisted products in each category will have the opportunity to "pitch" via live video to the judges, and the assembled Glee Gathering Audience, before they make their final decisions on the winners.
By the end of the Glee Gathering on 16th September we'll have announced winners in each of the categories above, plus the judges will also decide who should be the winners of the following overall Glee New Product Awards:
Best House Plants and Accessories
Best of British Award
Best Eco Initiative Product Award
Best Overall New Product at Glee
