This year’s SALTEX promises to meet every type of ground care need

Offering everything from turf care and specialist machinery, to landscaping and playground equipment, the SALTEX exhibition takes place from 3-5 September.

Close to 300 exhibitors will bring the latest products, equipment and expertise to Windsor Racecourse for the annual gathering and many will take advantage of the event’s outdoor location to offer live demonstrations.

Adding a new dimension to this year’s show, Play Fair 2013, the UK’s annual trade event, run by the Association of Play Industries (API), is joining forces with SALTEX to offer a one-stop shop for those involved in the selection, purchase, upkeep and replacement of play equipment and safer surfaces.

Expert advice
Located within the Institute of Groundsmanship’s (IOG) Pavilion, at the heart of the showground, expert groundsmen and women – as well as the IOG’s team of regional advisors – will offer one-to-one advice in the IOG Ask the Expert clinic. Many of them – including Keith Kent from Twickenham, Tony Stones from Wembley and Wimbledon’s Neil Stubely – will also take part in panel debates on issues that affect every sports club and every playing surface. In addition, key National Governing Bodies of Sport – the Football Association, The England and Wales Cricket Board and the Rugby Football League – will provide first-hand, authoritative advice to operators on funding, facility development and equipment loans.

The Ask the Expert clinic and panel debates complement a comprehensive education and networking programme at SALTEX. This includes a day-long series of golf-focused seminars, programmed by the British and International Golf Greenkeepers’ Association; the National Contractors Forum open debate; a pesticides workshop hosted by The Amenity Forum; a panel debate targeted at arboriculturists and hosted by Rhod Hoskins; and the Service Dealer Heritage Awards.

Getting young people into grounds care

The findings of a 12-month research project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and delivered by young groundsmen across the industry, will be officially launched on Tuesday 3 September via an interactive exhibit in the IOG Pavilion at SALTEX this year.

Highlighting changes in the customs and traditions of grounds care between the 1948 London “a usterity” Olympic Games and the London 2012 Olympics, the exhibit will display 1948 and 2012 Olympic memorabilia and highlight the similarities and differences between caring for our sports grounds. A video will also depict the project development – from its launch at the IOG Conference in York, to visits to heritage partners The National Football Museum and Wembley Stadium.

There will also be the chance to view stadium preparations at The Empire stadium, Wembley from the 1948 Games post World War Two and behind the scenes footage on preparations at the new Wembley Stadium from head groundsman Tony Stones and his team.

The project has been spearheaded by members of the IOG’s Young Board of Directors (YBD). The YBD plans to use this and other IOG initiatives to encourage young people into the industry.
