The British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) has been confirmed as Programme Sponsor for the 2019 Specifi Landscape Roadshow Programme, in a move that sees the two organisations joining forces to provide a unique meet the buyer experience for landscape architects, contractors and garden designers throughout major cities in the UK.
The first event, held in London on 5 February 2019, will see BALI exhibit alongside some of the country’s finest landscape suppliers, with the opportunity to meet landscaping professionals including decision-makers and purchasers. Other cities include Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester.
Specifi, which is now in its 5th year of operation and has 3,000 specifier attendees nationwide has seen rapid growth since its inception and is strongly positioned within the industry events calendar. This unique offer of a free 3-in-1 event including inspirational industry speaker, networking and dinner all underpinned by a free bar is perfectly positioned not only geographically but timely, within the working day. These easy to access events are central and close to transport links plus a post work start of 5pm means they are a great alternative to costly national events not to mention the socialising benefit a free bar and dinner has to offer. Attendees are invited to relax and unwind, and, are encouraged to chink a glass with over 40 landscape architect practices and design studios, with over 70 guests in attendance at each event.
Commenting on the sponsorship, BALI’s Marketing and Communications Manager said, “BALI welcomes this new partnership which will help the association make new industry connections and allow us to promote BALI directly with decision-makers who own architectural practices that offer a landscape service. BALI members will also benefit with a free event that allows them to make new contacts, and hopefully, link up on exciting future commercial and domestic projects. BALI will be circulating invites to members shortly.”
Chief Executive of Specifi, Paul Brooke, said, “We are very much looking forwards to working with BALI in 2019. Our ongoing strategy to invest in industry partnerships and community growth are establishing better built environment events year on year.”
