With summer fast approaching, the first ever Sports and Grounds Expo (SAGE) is drawing ever closer, and excitement is building for the newest event in the industry
From 27 – 29 July 2021, the UK’s largest outdoor Sports and Grounds Expo will open its doors for the first time, welcoming a huge range of visitors from across the industry including grounds maintenance, landscaping, colleges, universities, local authorities, premiership grounds, green keeping and many more. There will also be free training opportunities at the event.
Set in the stunning surroundings of the Three Counties Showground at the foot of the Malvern Hills, trades from the sector will be able to demonstrate leading products and showcase new releases, without any limitations on space.
SAGE visitors will hear the latest ideas from within the industry and be given advice on how to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness.
“We’re really looking forward to our inaugural event. It will provide a fantastic opportunity to get outdoors and see what is on offer across the industry. Our motivation is to give visitors a hands-on experience, without compromising on safety, and at The Three Counties Show Ground this is easily achieved,” says Event Manager Vicky Panniers.
In partnership with Mow-Sure, the event is also offering free training courses for visitors and guests to the Expo.
The taster sessions will be carried out by Mow-Sure’s Ian Sumpter, who has become well-renowned in the industry having been involved in turf care since the early 1980s, working in a variety of roles from Amenity Horticulture, sports turf management through to training.
The sessions will take place on each day of the event and will last for approximately 1.5 hours each.
“Our aim is to provide an environment that will benefit everyone from grass roots to senior management; we are very excited about what is on offer and think it’s the perfect way to kick start what is a hopefully a great time for the industry after such a tough 18 months,” Vicky continues.
The Sports & Grounds Expo plans to be highlight of the industry calendar this summer, offering a safe and proactive environment for those operating across all sectors of the sports and grounds maintenance industry. It is a free event, open to all who are interested in the sports and grounds industry.
