saltexPristine grounds can elevate a venue, and ensure visitors get the positive vibe that is so important to maintain a successful business. So how do you ensure that your groundscare programme is the best? Well one way is to attend SALTEX, Europe's largest free, sports turf, amenities, and landscaping trade exhibition. The event delivers an unmissable mix of learning and networking opportunities, education, and exhibition, all in one place over two days. 

Visitors can view the latest advances in equipment, hear about product developments in soft and hard landscaping and receive technical advice, all invaluable elements if success in keeping grounds in great condition is to be achieved. 

Now in its 77th year SALTEX 2023 will provide the visitor the chance to view over 400 brands in three halls, across two days – 01 and 02 November – at one central location – Birmingham NEC.

Alongside the exhibitors is an all-encompassing Learning LIVE education programme that provides advice, insight and real solutions to the biggest issues that the groundssaltex management industry faces. This year, SALTEX will host a series of over 30 sessions enabling visitors to hear directly from industry leaders, technical specialists, and experts from across the industry. Some of the first speakers to be signed up include: Dr Kate Entwistle and Dr Deborah Cox who will run an interactive turf disease clinic; with Alex Vickers, Dr Richard Earl and Dr James Welsh running an interactive soil science clinic. Leatherjacket and Chafer Grub control will be tackled by Sean Loakes (Syngenta) and Dr Minshad Ansari (Bionema).

Tackling a key issue for a growing number of groundscare professionals of ‘Working in a Chemical-free world’ will be Dr Christian Spring and Neil Rodgers from the STRI. 

Last year’s show brought together over 8,300 visitors from 50 plus countries with the biggest names in the groundscare industry voicing their enthusiasm for SALTEX. Asked why they attended 73 percent of visitors said it was their interest in the industry, 70 percent to source new products, services and suppliers and 46 percent stating that is provides a great opportunity to meet industry colleagues and make new connections – building networks, knowledge and learning about new innovations.saltex
