It’s a trio of RHS flower shows for Gravity Digital
Three of Gravity Digital’s clients will be attending the three largest horticultural shows in the UK this year.
Mr Fothergill’s and Griffin Glasshouses will be exhibiting at the RHS Chelsea Flower show, RHS Chatsworth Flower Show and RHS Hampton Court Flower Show over the next few months. Leading UK premium sausage brand HECK will also be at Hampton Court Flower Show too.
Each year these three shows become bigger with demand for tickets increasing with the anticipation of them going on sale. Gravity has worked with Griffin, Mr Fothergills and HECK for a number of years helping them to engage with followers through social media and digital marketing support.
Debbie Porter, Director of Gravity Digital, is a passionate gardener herself and talked of how the company will be supporting their clients at these events; “We are delighted to be covering Mr Fothergill’s and Griffin Glasshouses’ attendance at these fantastic events bringing the shows to their social media audiences. HECK will also be taking van-loads of delicious treats for visitors at Hampton Court as part of their busy events schedule for the year.
“We love attending these shows and we know they leave a lasting impression on visitors, so for people who aren’t lucky enough to attend in person we take the shows to them. We are really honoured to be working with such strong brands and can’t wait for the summer of flower shows to start.”
As each year proves, it is the busiest time online for clients exhibiting for the duration of the shows as their social media channels explode with photos and posts from enthusiastic visitors. 2018 will be even more exciting with the arrival of a long-awaited summer with The Chelsea Flower Show kicking off just after the nation is in high spirits after the Royal Wedding, for which HECK will be producing a special limited edition Sweet Ginger and American Mustard sausage called ‘The Majestic’.
