For the first time since Covid-19 broke out, Garden Connect managed to resume its’ successful Meetup program.

The Garden Connect Meetup program was introduced in 2019 and the goal was to help garden centres understand how to get more out of their websites and webshops. “We’re glad we were able to resume our Meetup program since a lot happened in the last 18 months. Being together to share ideas is very beneficial and helps to find great solutions,” explains Edwin Meijer of Garden Connect.


Next Meetups UK

Meetups are sessions of approximately two hours during which we share important trends, market data and tips on how to benefit from them. In the upcoming 2 months, Meetups are scheduled to take place in:

  • Birmingham
  • Bristol
  • London
  • Manchester

During these Meetups, we will share 6 tips to elevate your online sales which will be valuable for everyone: whether you want to grow your garden centre, webshop or both. A lunch or drink after the Meetups is provided by Garden Connect and there’s plenty of time to discuss challenges with the Garden Connect team as well as colleagues from the garden industry. 

If you’re interested in attending the Garden Connect Meetups, just go to www.gardenconnect.com/events for more info.


Free & open to everyone

“Our Meetups are open to everyone. Our goal is to share knowledge and to help independent garden centres to understand what’s happening online and how to benefit from it. If the garden industry is thriving, we will thrive as well. It doesn’t matter if you’re using our platform or not.” explains Edwin Meijer.

The Meetups are free to attend and lunch is provided by Garden Connect. Due to the exclusivity of the data shared, it’s only accessible for independent garden centres with a limit of 15 attendees per Meetup.
