Visit AMES UK at Glee 2023!

The AMES UK stand at Glee Birmingham in 2022

The AMES UK family will be out in full force for the garden industry’s most important trade event on 27-29 June, so don’t miss our stand if you’re planning to visit too. If you explored the stand last year, you’ll find us in the same spot: Hall 8 – 20, stand 6C40 – F41.

We’re taking the opportunity to show off our brands La Hacienda, Apta and Kelkay together under the AMES UK banner – and people from across the teams will be in attendance keen to network, exhibit our products and show you what we can do.

What’s new?

Marketplace disruption!

Although the details are fully under wraps, we can confirm that Glee 2023 will mark the debut of an exciting new brand that will shake up the marketplace and prompt more questions about a bestselling product category.

Our managing director, Paul North, has this to say: “Our vision for AMES as a one-stop-shop for all things outdoors is set to take a step closer to reality with this new launch.

“Highly considered, researched and backed by decades of experience, this new product offering will open up new opportunities for not just retailers but for consumers who want to garden with confidence.”

Our visitors at Glee will be the first to peek under the hood – don’t miss it!

More value for retailers

A visit to the AMES UK stand at Glee offers multiple benefits for retailers and category buyers – it’ll be full of the latest innovations in our aggregate, paving, outdoor heating, water feature, garden décor and pot offerings.

You can chat with the team for a wealth of tangible business advise and our merchandising best practice; look out for new merchandising concepts designed to increase the average basket spend and increase brand awareness in store.

This year, we’re aiming to inspire with cross-merchandising and trend-led displays that engage customers in the retail environment.

Can I book a visit?

Yes, you can. We’re pleased to let you know that if you’d like to speak to a particular member of the team at Glee, this year we encourage you to get in touch and book your visit now. The AMES stand tends to become a hub for the industry’s best and brightest, so we’ve dedicated plenty of space to accommodate private meetings, casual chats and quick coffees.

If you want to catch up but you don’t know who to speak to or when you’ll be around, that’s okay too – find a member of the team wearing an AMES UK t-shirt at Glee on the day, and we’ll be glad to make time to answer any questions.
