Hurry up summer! A sneak peek into what took place at our Garden & Outdoors Power Pitching Event

6th April, 2022

With the days getting gradually lighter and the weather warming up, we thought it was the perfect time to host our Garden and Outdoors Power Pitching event. From outdoor furniture to BBQs to kids’ toys and to plants, journalists witnessed a kaleidoscope of different products linked to being outside. 

We had some incredible brands in attendance including the likes of: Wayfair, Homebase, Dobbies Garden Centre, Burton McCall, Xootz, LANDMANN and DeliVita!

During the fast paced and fun 6 minute pitches, the brands showcased their products to 27 of our journalist friends from leading publications such as Good Housekeeping, The Telegraph, HELLO!, The Sun, The Daily Mail and the Mirror. 

With the event full of a buzz and some great tunes courtesy of our very own DJ & host, Courtney Rogers, it’s safe to say our latest Power Pitching event was a huge success! Of course, we may be slightly biased but we think the reviews speak for themselves…

HELLO!: “​​The best virtual event of this kind that I've attended, so well put together and thought out.”

Prima: “A brilliant way to see new and familiar brands’ latest offerings.” “Quick and snappy, super well organised and some good take aways and new connections.” “Such a brilliant idea, perfectly executed…And exceptional music to shoulder shimmy to!”

A huge thank you to DeliVita for partnering with us for this event. Our lucky journalists received some delicious goodies in the post from DeliVita and if they posted the products on social media, they were even automatically entered into a competition to win a £100 John Lewis voucher! 

Thanks to the wonderful brands in attendance, the energy of the event was electric and we all logged off feeling thoroughly excited for summer days, outside with a pizza oven, surrounded by lovely garden furniture and beautiful plants! 

Does this sound like the kind of event you would be interested in attending? We have 19 Power Pitching events coming up throughout the year including our Parent & Baby, Father’s Day and Fashion & Accessories events in April and May.
