Cream of the industry set to attend HTA Garden Leaders’ Conference

In these tough times business owners and managers need to find every point of advantage they can, to learn from others’ experiences and to focus on the basics. The conference is shaping up to be a substantial meeting of minds in the garden sector and with a large number of senior executives from major companies already booked to attend (including Dobbies, Frosts, Garden & Leisure Group, Haskins, Johnsons of Whixley, Notcutts, Scotsdales, Scotts Miracle Gro, Squires, Webbs of Wychbold and Westland as well as wide representation from the garden trade media) there are only a limited number of spaces left.

HTA Director General David Gwyther said, “It is encouraging to see that so many of the key players from our industry have already signed up to attend this event which will look at current trends in the garden market as well as the challenges caused by the current economic turmoil. With a top notch line up of speakers and an agenda very much in tune with the issues of the day all those serious about their business really should be there.”
