The Four Oaks Trade Show is the UK’s premier show for ornamental horticulture and celebrated the 50th anniversary in 2022. The glasshouse venue has a relaxed and informal atmosphere well suited to the event and the industry. It is cost-effective and user friendly with none of the restrictions of the purpose built exhibition halls.
Plants are the most prominent feature of the show, accounting for over 50% of exhibiting companies, with associated supplies and services from production to point-of-sale. Exhibits will include a wide range of glasshouse equipment and machinery from seeders and handling equipment to fully automated transplanting systems plus irrigation, crop protection, growing media and services. For the other end of the sector, there is a wealth of products and services from sundries, pots/planters, Christmas trees and wares, garden furniture, statuary, labelling, EPoS, gifts and much more.
Overseas exhibitors account for over 35% of the total.
The visitor profile includes grower retailers, independent garden centres, garden centre chains, commercial growers, multiple retailers, wholesalers, online retailers, landscapers & architects, garden designers, professional gardeners/groundsmen, farm shops, local authorities and florists. The show is a combination of business and social activity, but above all it is a buyer’s event where the horticultural economy thrives.
The site currently offers 13,000 m² of covered exhibition space all on concrete floors. Operating on our own site, we are able to offer exhibitors a level of flexibility and service that cannot be matched elsewhere. Unrestricted access during the week prior to the show, with free handling and free secure storage before and after the show, relieves the pressure of the September show circuit. On show days, beverages and packed lunches are provided free of charge. The first day will close with an exhibitors’ Supper, also free of charge. It is all part of a service that makes this show unique.
The cost of exhibiting is modest, with no hidden extras. Outside plots are also available which add an extra dimension to the site and offer a cost-effective option to companies who by the nature of their product need a larger site.
