GROSVENOR garden centre played host to more than 200 VIP delegates from the International Garden Centre Association and welcomed them with a doorman and the full red carpet treatment.
Managing director, Iain Wylie met the party of delegates from garden centres around the world who enjoyed a tour of the centre.
With representatives from 27 nations including Australia, Japan, South Africa and the USA, the IGCA congress meets annually to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of information with independent garden retailers on a worldwide basis. One of the highlights of the congress is a study tour for representatives to learn from successful business precedents and Grosvenor was chosen as one of the award-winning venues for this year’s visit to the North West of England.
“It was a privilege to welcome so many garden centre operators from around the world,” said Iain Wylie.
“We were delighted to receive such positive feedback from delegates and especially pleased that their visit to the UK came at a time when we have completed a year of major brand development.”
