Pets at Glee New Product Showcase 2019 winners are revealed

Nine ground-breaking new pet products have been confirmed as the winners of the inaugural Pets at Glee New Product Showcase 2019, at a special award presentation.

Selected from over 360 entries – a record breaking number of entries – showcased at Glee (10th – 12th September, NEC Birmingham), the winning products were chosen by an expert panel of judges.

Entries were submitted into nine key pet retail categories, comprising:

  • Best Pet Clothing Products
  • Best Pet Toys & Entertainment
  • Best Pet Accessories
  • Best Pet Bedding & Travel
  • Best Pet Food & Treats
  • Best Pet Health, Grooming & Cleaning
  • Best Pet Technology
  • Best Eco Initiative Pet Products
  • Best Overall Pets @ Glee

The 2019 judges – Ian Hodgson – Garden News, Andy Bunker – Altons Garden Centre, Mel Livingstone – Fron Goch Garden Centre, Jane Lawler – Marketing Consultant and GCA Inspector, Tom Grinnall – Head of Home, Blue Diamond, Josh Winter – Planters Tamworth, Colin Weatherly-Mein – GIMA/Greenfingers, Roger Crookes – Pughs Garden Centres and Ex-GCA inspector, Caroline Linger – Crocus and Emma Kelly – Bents – considered each entry on a challenging range of criteria, including innovation, design, quality, environmental credentials, pricing and retail potential – resulting in some hot debates and close runners-up in a number of categories. A shortlist was then decided for each category, with the shortlisted suppliers then invited to join the judges in the ‘Pitching Den’.
