Welcome to the digital version of the Solex Exhibition 2020 from Gina Hinde, Marketing Manager of Lofa and Solex.
"What a year! It began with fears of not knowing whether or not garden centres would be allowed to open, and what they would or would not be able to sell in stores.
"It now seems a long time ago that we had these worries as our members and the stores they supply have nearly all sold out of stock, which is a brilliant result for a year where there has been so much uncertainty.
"However, it is still not plain sailing, many companies are still furloughing staff and having to figure out new ways of working and showcasing their products.
"We decided to cancel Solex in March as we knew that this year was going to be a challenge for everyone within the industry. We put the safety and wellbeing of our staff, exhibitors, visitors, partners and contractors first.
"So, with no Solex our next thoughts were how do we get the fabulous range of 2021 Leisure and Outdoor products in front of our Solex visitors?
"Easy, we decided to link up with the guys from GTN and use the magic of the internet to bring you the digital version of the Solex Exhibition 2020.
"So, it’s business as usual for the the Solex Sun which normally runs across the three days of the Solex Show but this year we will be running across the whole week, 6-10 July.
"Please delve in and take a look at what’s on offer from our exhibitors for Spring/Summer Season 2021.
"There is also an interactive exhibition map on the Solex exhibition website www.solexexhibition.com linking you up to each exhibitors website.
"Please feel free to contact any of the companies or contact the SOLEX/LOFA office and we will connect you with what or who you are looking for.
