High demand means expansion for Harrogate International Nursery Fair 2022

With all space originally contracted now fully booked – with five months still to go – the organiser of Harrogate International Nursery Fair is planning to open up a fifth hall to cope with demand.

Show organiser, Adrian Sneyd, commented: “This year we moved to a new layout due to changes the venue were making, but such has been the early uptake for space that the first four halls are sold out with still many months to go.

“This is excellent news and quite unprecedented in recent years; but reinforces the support from the industry to move to an October time slot that will see both returning and new exhibitors alike.”

The plan now, says Adrian, is to open a fifth hall, allowing the fair to expand further and offer buyers more opportunities to see a larger selection of brands without the need for extensive travelling.

The new layout of the show is all on one level, with the halls closely connected making it easier for visitors to navigate quickly. With additional space secured, there are now further opportunities for those who had previously not considered exhibiting. However, with space selling fast, Adrian is urging those interested that the sooner booked, the better position will be secured.

“The show will now be permanently in October, a time when Harrogate – a popular UK tourist destination – is particularly busy,” Adrian continued. “Therefore, I would strongly recommend that anyone planning to attend the show, both exhibitors and visitors, book accommodation early as bedroom space will be in high demand.”

Those interested in exhibiting should head to www.nurseryfair.com and complete the online booking form.
