Our team have had a fantastic time this week at the return of Glee 2021 at Birmingham’s NEC. 


The event was the first chance the garden retail industry has had in two years to meet up, and our team welcomed the opportunity to see clients in-person once again. 

We saw familiar faces from our leading garden centre clients and met new faces looking for solutions to help make retailing easier. 


Strength in Garden Centre Solution Partnerships 

New for this year, our team were joined by a selection of sister companies from ClearCourse to complement our integrated offering to clients. These were ClearAccept (offering a new standard of integrated payments through our solutions), The EPOS Bureau (the leading EPOS supplier for food retailers) and Emperium POS (a provider of cutting-edge retail and hospitality EPOS). Joining forces means our solutions now cover every aspect of the garden retail industry.

Going Green at GLEE 

One of the overriding themes of the show was sustainability, which echoes the agenda of the industry as a whole. This year for GLEE, we are proud to announce that we offset our carbon emissions for the show, as part of our sustainability initiative. Learn more about Making GLEE Green: Swan Offset Carbon Emissions. 


Garden Centre Retail at GLEE
