Don’t Miss Out!By Tim Hodson

Are you looking for fresh, new ways to present and sell your products at retail?

Would you like to learn about innovative methods to help increase your sales?

If you answered “Yes” to either of these questions, then be sure to check out GPN’s webinar series this Thursday – “Marketing & Merchandising Ideas from Abroad.”

On April 19 at 2 p.m. Eastern time, Dave Edenfield, president of The Visions Group, will discuss some of the latest horticulture marketing and merchandising ideas that he observed on his most recent trip to Europe.

The European marketplace is widely recognized for introducing unique merchandising techniques that are designed to get consumers to react with their wallets. From distinctively different colored containers, to decorative accessories, to informative and entertaining plant tags, European growers are finding inventive and original ways to present their products at retail.

While this webinar is tailored to large growers who want to learn about some of the innovative yet practical ideas that European growers and retailers are using to sell green goods – any size grower can participate.

To participate in the webinar, please visit our registration site.
