Garden Connect launches official IGCA 2019 app

The 2019 IGCA Congress takes place in Windsor, UK and is the first IGCA Congress to have an app. Garden Connect teamed up with the British Garden Centre Association to develop an app to replace the congress-book delegates usually receive.

The app provides all the information delegates need to know while they are at the IGCA congress. Edwin Meijer, MD of Garden Connect: "I've been at the congress myself for two years and felt we could provide more information about the tour if we could do it online. We're very excited we had the opportunity to develop the first IGCA app ever. It shows the garden industry embraces innovation and is open to digital."

Garden centre reviews

During the tour, the delegates from all over the world will visit Britain's best garden centres including Millbrook, Ruxley Manor, Haskins, Longacres and many more. Tam Woodhouse on behalf of the organising committee: "After each visit, we invite delegates to give a rating. This was previously done via paper forms, but it makes sense to do it via the app. The centres will get that feedback instantly, allowing them to improve an already great business."

Push messages

The app also allows the IGCA to send push messages: "We're not going to use this too often, but sometimes it can be efficient to reach out to all delegates. Having push messages at our disposal will help us to communicate with the 250+ delegates." explains Tam Woodhouse. 

Garden Connect is proud to be a sponsor of the IGCA 2019 Congress.
