Corona Clipper gave garden writers a sneak peek of its new line of products at the Garden Writers Symposium in Dallas last month. The manufacturer of gardening tools used ‘Innovation for Seasons to Come’ as its theme for the trade show.
The trade show at this year’s Garden Writers Symposium featured many new products and I came home with a duffel bag full of great gardening gear to trial and write about for next season. But I was blown away by the display and giveaways at the Corona Clipper booth.
Since the 192os, Corona Clipper has manufactured professional and consumer gardening tools. You’d think after all those years the company would run out of ideas, but it looks like they’re just getting started.
The theme for the trade show was ‘Innovations for Seasons to Come’ and the company used that theme to introduce its new product line and vision for the future.
Corona unveiled a new logo and look for its extensive line-up of gardening tools. Garden writers like me were treated to big red t-shirts with the “Fill Your Shed with Corona Red” tag line. Anyone who wore the shirt to the trade show received a garden tool bag filled with three of Corona’s ergonomically-designed tools including a trowel, cultivator, and weeder. There was also a set of hand pruners and, as an added goody, an Authentic Haven Brand manure tea bag from our friend Annie Haven.
The trade show floor was filled with garden communicators wearing Corona Red and needless to say the Corona booth was one busy place.
“At Corona, we’re always watching gardening trends in order to find new and better ways to match the needs of our customers,” said Chris Sabbarese, digital media and communications manager. “Research has shown that urbanites are turning to container gardening on patios, balconies, roof tops and in vertical gardens. These are passionate gardeners who still want quality products, making our CT line of ergonomic tools a perfect match for their needs.”
