Take a look at GES 2014...

This year’s GES, held on the 21st and 22nd May 2014 at The Exhibition Hall, Rosehill Gardens in Parramatta, will be remembered as the Expo of opportunities and innovations.   A variety of new and exciting local and interstate exhibitors added a buzz to GES 2014 creating an atmosphere conducive to stimulating a thought provoking new approach to business and to the industry as a whole.

The streetscape featuring the 202020 Vision industry campaign and the Garden Centre 2020, as the open speaker’s forum provided visually appealing focal points for the show and were a great success.

Garden Centre 2020 – a futuristic garden centre designed with four areas of identified growth for retailing was an open and attractive space where presentations and speaker’s programs were held at GES this year. Importantly, because the space was open to the show, the Garden Centre became dynamic and interactive, acting as a drawcard to attendees and exhibitors interested in the presentations underway.

Fusion was a real highlight of the show – showcasing 35 new products from the year and putting a spot light for retailers, landscapers and council and developers on THE plants, products and concepts to be looking out for in spring 2014. Great interest was shown in the Fusion Showcase display; with feedback from previous years being that opportunity to access new products is a crucial reason for attending GES.
