Two of the UK’s biggest garden centres to headline GIMA Day Conference

by | Feb 8, 2023 | News | 0 comments

The UK’s two largest garden centre chains will both be addressing GIMA members at the forthcoming Day Conference being held on 14 March at Wyboston Lakes, Bedfordshire.  

Graeme Jenkins, Dobbies CEO, will be addressing the GIMA membership. As the UK’s largest garden centre retailer operating over 75 stores and following a busy acquisitions and new store opening programme, Graeme will be updating members on Dobbies’ plans for the future. 

Also addressing the delegates will be British Garden Centres’ PR communications and plant director, Boyd Douglas Davies, and project and development manager, Amy Stubbs. Together Boyd and Amy will bring members up to speed with the current progress and development plans for British Garden Centres.

Further industry speakers will be announced in due course but with what is likely to be a popular event, members are being encouraged to sign up early in order to guarantee attendance.
