Sports and grounds expo
SAGE – an outdoor event for the sports and grounds industry taking place at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern on 6-7th July, 2022

 

The Sports & Grounds Expo (SAGE) has been designed to provide an outdoor opportunity for the sports and grounds maintenance industry to showcase their kit and solutions in the outdoors, allowing visitors to get “hands on”. Each exhibitor has a demo area located beside their stand providing space for demonstrations.

Determined to tackle key issues for the industry head-on, SAGE is proud to be hosting its sustainability summit, which takes place on Wednesday 6th in partnership with Bio-Circle, and returns on Thursday 7th July for a live Q&A. The summit will be led by experts across the industry and will provide guidance and support on how sustainable solutions can be achieved by businesses across the sports and grounds maintenance industry. The panel and their colleagues will be on hand to deliver tailored options for those looking to adopt processes that are more environmentally friendly.

SAGE  has also recently announced that it has been named the home event for GRASS; Ground care Resources and Sustainability Solutions. The new networking and support group, which is free to join, supports all groundscare and other sporting industry sustainability projects, providing advice and knowledge of sustainable pitch care. To find out more join us as founder of GRASS, Mark Tomlinson, heads up the Sustainability Summit on Wednesday 6th July.

On Wednesday 6th July  Training Grounds Ltd will deliver tailor made courses and sessions to delegates. It is a Lantra approved training provider, who provides professional, independently-accredited training to groups of operatives in the workplace. Clients include sports clubs and associations, commercial and non-profit organisations, schools, universities, local authorities, contractors and private estates.

Managing Director Martin Sampson says: “As a training partner we offer clients a complete service, from initial enquiry to certification and beyond, helping Grounds, Course and Estate Managers, HR staff in local authorities and companies of all sizes plan training and competency programmes for their staff teams. We work with a fantastic group of instructors and assessors with an incredibly diverse skillset, enabling us to deliver a broad range of training courses and qualifications.

It’s vital we address the skills shortage in our industry in order to ensure that the nation’s sports and leisure facilities, parks and green spaces have skilled people to maintain them, and that those personnel are able to work confidently, competently and safely.”
