Something for everyone at IOG Scotsturf

12.10am 15th October 2007 - Exhibitions & Conferences

With over 100 exhibitors – many of them showing products that will be on public view for the first time in Scotland – plus a comprehensive and free education programme addressing top-of-the-agenda issues affecting all grounds professionals, as well as live equipment demonstrations and an awards programme that embraces innovative products, next month’s IOG Scotsturf show offers something for everyone involved in the ground care and open space management profession.

Being staged at the Royal Highland Hall, Ingliston, Edinburgh on 7th – 8th November, IOG Scotsturf is bigger and better than ever. And that’s no surprise since all the leading suppliers taking stand space will be showing and demonstrating leading brands of turf care machinery and equipment alongside products also relevant to all open space management disciplines, including greenkeeping and the amenity sector.

Also on show will be landscape services, portable/secure buildings, tools for grounds care and arboriculture, commercial vehicles and training services – and lots more.

Education will again be a main theme at the show and a timely focus will be made on the latest Code of Practice for Pesticides (Scotland) and the EU Directive, on health and safety grounds, to ban all plant protection products from use in public amenity areas, which will have a considerable impact on golf courses. There will also be a detailed look at the new Hand Arm Vibration and Noise at Work Regulations. In addition, STRI will be presenting ‘Where art meets science’ in terms of sportsturf management.

Free tickets to Scotland’s only show for the open space profession are available from
