Briers stole the show with stylish & colourful gloves at the Garden Press Event 2013

The Garden Press Event took place on 14th February at the Barbican Exhibition Centre. The most influential journalists in the gardening industry were attracted to the Briers stand by the vast range of gardening gloves and boots available. There was a particular interest in lightweight yet durable gloves, such as Briers Professional Plus.

Also present on the stand were the Professional Plus Gloves, which were successfully launched at Glee 2012.
Standing by the motto “We listen, we care, we learn”, The Garden Press Event has proven to be such a success with visitors and exhibitors that the event attracted some of the most high profile gardening press.

The Briers fashion forward ranges were presented to the media just in time for the spring season, sporting the upcoming trends, in particular the shocking cyan colour which is set to be all the rage for spring.

Jackie Eades, Managing Director of Briers, says “Paying attention to trends is essential if we are to continue to excite the consumer, whose tastes are constantly evolving. Women are particularly in tune with changing fashions and are very trend conscious when making purchases.

We really enjoyed this year’s Garden Press Even. It was a great opportunity to have our products displayed in front of the most influential and reputable members of the garden media and to exhibit alongside industry experts”. 

The Classic Wellington Boots made an appearance and displayed the true meaning of ageless style with their traditional look and colour. The reliability of this fashionable footwear proves that it doesn’t need to alter with time.
Briers believes that its willingness to create bespoke ranges for retailers, factory testing and customer care are major contributory factors in its recent growth.
