The Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh has signed a three-year deal to host the Gardening Scotland show.
 
The event previously had a rolling annual contract with organiser Rural Projects, and has been at the venue since its opening in 2000. The next Gardening Scotland 2012 will take place on 1-3 June and cover 25,000sqm, with more than 400 exhibitors expected. Last year, it attracted 40,000 visitors over threedays.
 
“To welcome Gardening Scotland back to the Royal Highland Centre for the next three years reinforces the event’s flourishing success but also underpins demand for consumer events in Edinburgh,” said Royal Highland Centre director Archie Glendinning.
 
“Gardening Scotland is shaping up to be an even bigger event over the coming years spanning a larger section of our facilities including indoor and outdoor event space. We will continue to work closely with Rural Projects to facilitate their needs and to ensure visitors get the best possible experience at Gardening Scotland.”
 
Rural Projects MD Martin Dare welcomed the three-year commitment.
 
“The Royal Highland Centre is the ideal home for Gardening Scotland and for our 40,000 visitors and we look forward to a very successful future here,” he said.
 
The Royal Highland Centre has embarked on a £30m expansion campaign to broaden its event offering.
 
The Scottish Golf Show will move to the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh for its 2012 edition, beginning a plan to alternate between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
