Glee

Daniel?will be responsible for raising awareness of Glee?s exciting new dedicated pet sector ??Pets @ Glee. Driving pets directly into the heart of the exhibition, Daniel?s remit will include securing leading UK and international pet brands for this thriving showcase; ultimately helping to arm garden retailers with everything that they need to maximise profits of pet products and grooming services in store.

Additionally, Daniel?s role will see him work to grow Glee?s?Plants,?and?Landscaping and Garden Decoration?sectors, and will be looking to bring both new and existing UK based brands to these popular areas of the event. Finally, he will be overseeing the sponsorship and industry involvement with the Retail Lab at Glee throughout the 2018 campaign.

Before joining Glee, Daniel previously worked on the?RWM?show. This role means that Daniel will bring with him a wealth of relevant experience, including 12 years within the exhibition market. ?It was within this role that Daniel was also exposed to the landscaping material sector, providing him with a strong and well-informed knowledge of not just the products, but also the challenges that retailers and manufacturers within this industry can face.

Talking about his new appointment, Daniel said: ?I?m excited to become part of the Glee team. The exhibition has a great reputation and I hope to be part of developing this even further. It?s also an exciting prospect to join Glee as the show embarks on another year of change as it relocates within the NEC and expands its added-value feature content. I look forward to seeing how the industry responds and interacts with these changes.?

Glee?s Event Director Matthew Mein added: ?We?re pleased to welcome Daniel to the team. He has already made his mark, and no doubt his experience will pay dividends as we look at ways to expand Glee?s offering in 2018 and beyond. I?m sure exhibitors will also welcome his appointment, and no doubt he will provide a strong and ongoing support network for his customers before, during and after their time at the show.?
