Welcome to the Horticultural Exhibitors' Association HEA logo
Always in pursuit of excellence in exhibiting horticulture, in all its facets.
Run by exhibitors for exhibitors, the HEA Committee exists to represent, and promote, the interests of all members at horticultural and agricultural shows.
By working in partnership with event organisers, we can help ensure a bright and successful future for shows. Our objective is to establish and maintain standards in floral exhibition.
We have set up a number of initiatives to help focus attention on some of the issues facing exhibitors and show organisers.

If you need encounter a problem during the show season - click here for a list of committee members attending the various shows. All other contact should initially be made through the HEA Secretary.

Promoting these issues will help consumers differentiate good horticultural retailers, and give them confidence in their purchases.
