The Summer Outdoor Leisure Exhibition or for those in the know SOLEX, will be opening its doors to the most influential buyers from within the garden industry on 9th July 2019. It will be packed full of the freshest designs from 60 LOFA members, with the full A-Z and everything in between that the outdoor and leisure industry has to offer.
The SOLEX exhibition is all under one roof, and in one hall, so you won’t have to walk for miles and miles to find the most inspirational and innovative products for the 2020 season. In fact it is a great place to do business, this relaxed and friendly exhibition is where you can establish new relationships and develop existing ones. So, whether you are a garden centre, a retail outlet, department store or multiple retailer, SOLEX has everything you could possibly want or need.
SOLEX has two new features this year, a brand-new product area for Barbecues and Firepits and another one for Outdoor Living which provides a sneak-peak at the new trends for 2020.
There is also a contemporary new SOLEX lounge, a great place to relax, chill out and unwind, serving refreshments to all visitors throughout the three show days, it’s a place to take the weight off your feet and re-charge your batteries, literally, as there will be charging points for all devices! There will also be secluded areas for those all-important business meetings or to check your Twitter feed!
Last year we attracted 1860 visitors over the three days the most popular days being Tuesday and Wednesday, 1332 of these visitors were pre-registered, 1594 of these were unique visitors and 266 re visited from previous years.
What is really exciting is that SOLEX is growing year on year! We forecast an increase of over 10% in floor space and have already exceeded 2018 space which is brilliant news , plus (drum role) we have 6 brand new exhibitors who are taking a total of 635sqm of space, final numbers aren’t in yet but we know that the event is going to be bigger and better than 2018, which is extremely positive for the future of SOLEX.
SOLEX is the retailers essential garden event of the year.
