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
– Magazine of the Year for HTA News

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.
