Cultivating Responsible Sourcing -

Source Garden, a unique global sourcing show where manufacturers from around the world can connect with retailers, brands, wholesalers and importers, will launch in 2024 as the new event for sourcing sustainable garden products.

Joining its recently launched and highly successful stable mates Source Fashion and Source Home & Gift from organisers Hyve Group plc, Source Garden’s first edition takes place on 25th – 27th June 2024 at NEC Birmingham. Source Garden brings together audited responsible global suppliers and manufacturers who are practising sustainable production and responsible manufacturing methods with retailers, brands, wholesalers and importers, who are looking to develop new sourcing and private label opportunities.

Providing a new sourcing environment where high quality meets ethical responsibility, visitors will discover show sectors including Outdoor Entertaining, Tooling, Garden Landscaping, Garden Decoration, Pets, Garden Care, and Retail Services and feel reassured that all exhibitors at Source Garden have undergone a recent SEDEX audit or another recognisable audit institution.

Suzanne Ellingham, Sourcing Director, Source Garden says, “Following the hugely successful launches of Source Fashion and Source Home & Gift, we are excited to introduce Source Garden. Beautiful products can be produced responsibly, and we strive to give our visitors the opportunity to source from manufacturers who are championing environmental and fair-trade methods. Source Garden is designed to nurture new ideas, seed inspiration, and grow knowledge on responsible and sustainable products and manufacturing methods. We are passionate about creating connections - bringing the brightest minds in the industry together, connecting all elements of the retail supply chain and ensuring our buyers find exactly what they are looking for.”
