First UK visitors to Kaemingk showroom after lockdown

Gordon Riggs are the first UK garden centre to visit the Kaemingk showroom again.


Denzel from Gordon Riggs: “It is great being able to be back at the Kaemingk showroom. We obviously were a little nervous to begin with, but Kaemingk has taken every necessary step to make us feel very safe.

"The flight was straight forward and the hotel well accommodated to the current situation. In the showroom Kaemingk put clear walking routes in place, there is plenty of space to keep the social distance and I can assure you that there is anti-bacteria gel throughout the building!


"By the way – the showroom is looking fantastic again with many inspiring presentations and lots of great new products and certainly worth the effort.”


Patrick Brinkcate from Kaemingk told GTN Xtra: "Slowly but surely we are going back to a slightly more normal world and it is great to see companies anticipating so quickly and of course having real brave hearts like Gordon Riggs to test the waters for us!

"You can contact your account manager at Kaemingk to become the next UK visitor. Should you however not feel confident yet, a complete virtual showroom is available as well."
