It certainly is encouraging times for the show which will be celebrating its 73rd anniversary. Since moving to the NEC, the show has grown steadily in terms of exhibitors, floor space and visitor numbers and current figures for this year appear to hint towards SALTEX 2018 continuing the trend.
Visitor pre-registration for 2018 is at an all-time high with current figures 11% up on last year, which reflects the quality of the show and how accessible the NEC is. In the post-show survey, SALTEX 2017 attendees said the venue, and convenient dates were key reasons behind their decisions to attend the event. Located in the centre of the UK, whether travelling from overseas or within the UK, the NEC is easy to get to by car, rail or air.
Visitors from 41 different countries have already registered for SALTEX 2018. The majority will be travelling to the NEC from various parts in Europe, but according to pre-registration data there will also be a large proportion of visitors attending SALTEX from Australia, the USA, Japan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
Visitors will see an impressive line-up of world-class innovation from over 300 exhibitors on the show floor. In addition to the wide range of innovative products on display within the indoor environment, visitors to SALTEX will have the chance to see many of these in action through the outdoor demonstrations on a grass area directly outside SALTEX halls 6,7 and 8. The outdoor demonstrations feature at SALTEX 2018 has completely sold out with a high number of exhibitors choosing to take outdoor plots.
This year, visitors can expect to see the latest line marking technology as demonstrated by Rigby Taylor, Intelligent Marking and Fleet Line Markers; Groundwater Dynamics will be showcasing equipment that helps deal with flooding and standing water issues; Skarper will be featuring its wood chippers, and idverde will be constructing a mini football pitch consisting of Mixto reinforced natural hybrid turf.
