Last week we attended SALTEX; a turf management trade show held at the NEC, Birmingham. For those with an interest in professional lawn care, this is one of the most relevant trade shows to go to in the UK… and it’s FREE to attend!
This is only the third year that GreenBest has exhibited at SALTEX. Being an exhibitor certainly makes it easier to meet up with our existing customers and make new connections. Jack and I certainly enjoyed getting out of the office and having a look at the new products on offer from other suppliers.
This year there were around 300 exhibitors at SALTEX. Since the show is hosted by the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG), it’s not surprising that most of the hardware and products on offer at the show are aimed at the sports turf industry. We are, however, seeing lawn care professionals being catered for more and more each year; this year lawn care was represented at ‘Question time with the Amenity Forum’ by Richard Salmon from Prolawncare. Also, Lawn Care is now officially on the list of attending industries thanks to campaigning from the UK Lawn Care Association.
The next trade show we will be exhibiting at is BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) in Harrogate, stay tuned for more information.
