25 March 2020
SALTEX 2020 is still set to take place on November 4 and 5 at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) Birmingham.
Acknowledging the evolving situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, Geoff Webb, CEO of The Institute of Groundsmanship, said recent exhibitions which were scheduled to take place at NEC Birmingham in March and April and were subsequently rescheduled for October and November, gives added confidence to continue preparation for SALTEX 2020 in November.
“SALTEX has faced many challenges in its 74-year history and everyone associated with the exhibition – organisers, exhibitors, visitors, the groundscare industry – has always shown resilience. It is this strength and unity that defines this fantastic industry.”, said Webb.
Webb continued: “We are ever mindful of the government advice and guidance. We live in hope that after this period of darkness, SALTEX and the groundscare industry will be a shining light as we plan for a brighter future and return to better days ahead.
“SALTEX 2020 will be a great opportunity for the industry to come together, to re-unite, and to look ahead to the future. It is our hope that we can all gather as one and that SALTEX’s 75th anniversary will be the most vibrant and celebrated event in its long history.
“In the meantime, we have already taken the necessary measures to ensure that our team can continue the work required to deliver SALTEX this November, while at the same time planning for every eventuality.
“Of course, it is necessary to adapt to the uncertainty we are all experiencing, as government advice can change at any time. We are committed to keeping you up to date every step of the way.
“Please take care of yourselves and loved ones and remember to offer extra support to those most vulnerable. Try and maintain a positive outlook and we look forward to brighter days ahead – because they will come.”
