The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) has been shortlisted in two categories in the Trade Association Forum (TAF) Awards 2016.

The categories shortlisted are:

– Exhibition of the Year for the HTA National Plant Show

Now in its fourteenth year the Trade Association Awards recognise, reward and promote best practice amongst trade associations in the UK and are a chance for TAF members to showcase the hard work and achievements of the last 12 to 18 months.

Commenting on the announcement, HTA Chief Executive Carol Paris said: ?The TAF Awards present a great opportunity to benchmark our work against that of other trade associations and we are delighted to be finalists in two categories.?

She added: ?The National Plant Show has gone from strength to strength and established itself as a milestone event in the horticultural calendar. It presents a great industry opportunity for growers and retailers to come together to do business. HTA News has established itself as a key trade title and is a ?must read? publication for news, information and inspiration.?

The winners will be announced at the Awards dinner in London on 6 July which follows the TAF Conference and AGM.
