about the event

Europe’s largest annual groundscare event featured 300 exhibitors in 2018, many of whom embraced new technologies through the launch of their latest products and services showcased at the event. BALI and its members exhibited through the popular BALI Zone; a landscaping hub designed to promote BALI members cohesively and collectively.

The vibrant show floor offers a fantastic opportunity to witness just how these latest technologies are having a positive impact in the groundscare industry – particularly in the all-new Innovation Hub where visitors are free to attend live interviews with industry experts and trendsetters at the forefront of new groundscare innovations.

The Hub is also the platform that showcases and celebrates the SALTEX Innovation Award. After making its successful debut at the 2017 show, the SALTEX 2018 Innovation Award attracted even more entries from various exhibitors across the globe and included a wide variety of high-quality products, services and equipment.

Free advice is available at every turn across three large halls at the NEC Birmingham. Visitors have the opportunity to gather one-to-one sports turf management advice from IOG regional pitch advisors at the Ask the Expert feature and Pathology and Soil Science LIVE provides an opportunity to share soil samples which are magnified, displayed on a large screen and assessed.

Learning LIVE, SALTEX’s all-encompassing education programme featured more than 50 free-to-attend seminars in 2018. Visitors gained CPD points for attendance and got to hear from expert speakers from the UK and abroad who focussed on vital issues that affect the industry.
