Glee New Product Awards 2015 results

Glee New Products 2015 - GTN 20 - Innovation winners - Backsaver Barrows.JPG

Nine ground-breaking new garden products have been confirmed as the winners of the coveted Glee New Product Awards 2015, with Baksaver Barrows (above) winning the Glee Innovation Award.

Selected from hundreds of entries before Glee opened its doors (14th – 16th September, NEC Birmingham), the winning products were chosen by an expert panel of judges representing independent and multiple retailers, the media and international suppliers.

Entries were submitted into nine key garden retail categories, comprising:

  • Best Garden Care (Accessories) Product
  • Best Machinery and Tool Product
  • Best Plants, Seeds, and Bulbs Product
  • Best Garden Care (Chemicals, Fertilisers and Compost) Products
  • Best Pet and Wildlife Product
  • Best Leisure Product
  • Best Catering and Speciality Product
  • Best Landscaping and Construction Product
  • Innovation Award 

One further award – the Retailers' Choice Award – will be announced on Wednesday (16th September) morning at 10:00am.  Retailers visiting the Glee New Product display are invited to vote for their favourite product after viewing the entries on display.  Voting is open now and shall close on Tuesday evening.

An additional ‘Innovation Award’ was also added to the award programme for 2015. Created in response to industry feedback, this new award celebrates true innovation from the 500+ exhibitors which will be filling Glee in 2015.  

Judges considered each entry on a challenging range of criteria, including innovation, design, quality, environmental credentials, pricing and retail potential – resulting in some hot debates and close runners-up in a number of categories.

On the judging panel were: Brian Archibald (Coolings), Tony Kersey (Homebase), Marcus Cousins (Aylett Nurseries), Kevin Waters (The Garden Works), Conna Powles (Haskins), Michelle de Lavis-Trafford (Choice), Gábor Knorr (British Garden), Yvonne Ritchie (Brechin Castle), Trevor Pfeiffer (Garden Trade News), Susan Fairley, Matthew Mein and Saul Leese (i2i Events).

All entries can be found in a single central located ‘new products hub’ within the heart of Glee’s location with halls 17 – 20.
