With 429 companies and organisations on show supplying industry-specific products, knowledge and advice for all manner of turf care and open space management disciplines – coupled with an equally wide-ranging education programme – this year’s IOG SALTEX (Windsor Racecourse, September 6-8) promises to be the fount of all knowledge for everyone involved in the maintenance and management of sports, amenity and leisure facilities.
Companies supplying turf care machinery and services continue to feature heavily at the show – with 45 per cent of exhibitors being listed under this category (compared to 28 per cent last year and 30 per cent in 2009).
Indeed, this year 157 ‘machinery companies’ will be on the showground – 51 more than were present at last year’s show!
Coupled with the fact that companies involved in the supply of amenity services also figure prominently this year (visit www.iogsaltex.co.uk for the complete list of companies represented), the statistics prompt IOG Sales Director Clare Johnson to comment: “The exhibitor count for this year’s show again truly reflects suppliers’ confidence – both in the industry as well as in IOG SALTEX’s ability to attract high-calibre visitors from all corners of the sector.
“There’s no doubt that while a host of suppliers are understandably exercising a degree of caution, there remains a healthy appetite for business in every aspect of effective and efficient turf care,” she says.
