Event organisers have reported a significant increase in pre-show visitor registration ahead of SALTEX 2018, which takes place at The NEC, Birmingham on 31 October – 01 November.

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 not only the quality of the show but also how accessible the NEC is. In the post-show survey, SALTEX 2017 attendees said that the venue, and convenient dates were key reasons behind their decisions to attend the FREE event. Located in the centre of the UK, whether you are 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 as far as the likes of Australia, the USA, Japan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia – to name but a few.

Visitors will no doubt be looking forward to 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 which will be taking place on a grass area directly outside the SALTEX halls 6,7 and 8.

In fact, 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 which helps deal with flooding and standing water issues; Skarper will be featuring their fabulous array of wood chippers and idverde will be constructing a mini football pitch consisting of Mixto reinforced natural hybrid turf.

SALTEX 2018 is free to attend. To register your attendance and beat the queues visit www.iogsaltex.com

"Similar. I just went to the timber merchant and for £8 they sold me 2 planks. I've had 'em years and they just slide alongside the mowers in transit."

Sean Clarke replied to ian moore's discussion need help !!! landscaping back garden!!
"Use the turf cutter, trying to rotovate that would be a nightmare. If you’re not in a rush, you could RoundUp the grass, in about 3 weeks it should be good to rotovate and level."

Andrew Watts replied to James King's discussion Seeding after scarifying
"It's a balance; lots of damp live moss, and the scarify is less effective vs removing dried out dead moss that was treated a couple of weeks beforehand.
So I look to treat first if very heavy moss, then scarify at least a week later. If light moss,…"

Evening all. I'm in the process of moving house and the new house does not currently have a very secure garage / shed / workshop. I'm looking for something to throw up quickly. Maybe to keep long term, but will probably need to be moved.  I've had a…
