SALTEX 2019 registration now open

Registration for Europe’s largest annual groundscare exhibition SALTEX 2019 is now open and visitors will notice some notable improvements to the registration process. 

Visitor registration is an integral part of the customer journey and new for SALTEX 2019 event organisers have partnered with LiveBuzz – the largest registration specialist in the UK which is the preferred supplier for some of the world’s most prestigious events.

Commenting on the new registration partnership, SALTEX event director Matthew Knight said: ““It’s important that our visitors, our exhibitors and their customers have the best possible experience at SALTEX. We are always aiming to make improvements to the show each year and following an open tendering process we appointed LiveBuzz because we want the very best in all aspects of the show.

“We are confident that our visitors will experience a best practice registration process – it will be smoother, more interactive and in addition there will be ten registration terminals at the show entrance meaning that visitors will gain faster entry.”

Taking place at the NEC, Birmingham on 30 and 31 October, SALTEX 2019 will feature over 300 exhibitors including some of the biggest names in groundscare. The two-day event will offer visitors a unique opportunity to experience the very latest industry trends and innovations, enhance their education and learn from industry experts.

The exhibition is the longest-standing event of its kind in the world, having been held almost every year since 1938, and the show is continually evolving with the people of the industry in mind.

"Yeah I realise I'm very much in the minority working to an hourly rate, but it works well for me. I have been with most of my customers for over ten years and it's all very flexible re working hours. There is trust both ways. If I need to be on site…"

"This is really helpful John and I think you're right. I run myself ragged trying to get everything done in 2 hours which I wasn't doing with the larger one off jobs which is probably why I preferred them. Lots of food for thought here."

"Josie, if you haven’t already, go to LJN’s Home Page, scroll down to the green footer and find the link to the ‘Hourly Rate Calculator’.
This is not directly related to customer hourly charging but more helps you establish your costs, what you need…"

"Understanding my costs is another area I need to think about I think. I got carried away with early bookings and haven't thought all the business side of things through - thanks for this."

"Glen 
I keep fairly detailed records of lawn areas and times for the lawns I cut.  Push mowing per minutes for me varies between £0.42 and £1.25.  My average is 70 pence per minute. Obviously I plan to raise the 42p per minute lawn.... I would agree…"

"That's a good point re lawn care guys. My customers so far are a bit of a hodge podge so working out where my skills and therefore ideal clients lie is probably worth thinking about too."

"I think finding pricing that works for my business is key and I guess that's what I'm realising I'm not, thanks for clarifying I am a bit cheap (which you're right I did suspect)!"

"As I'm on the less experienced side I wanted to stick to the lower end of pricing but appreciate you actually giving figures here which I know some can be reluctant to do given this is accessible to the public. "

"The Stiga is well over £7k if we want to be accurate. £60 ph applies to hand mowing as well. On a £40 job  I had to use the hand mower on one occasion recently due to temporary lack of access. It took one hour with the hand mower as opposed to under…"

"I think this is a good point re listing specifically what is covered under general maintenance especially if I go down the road of not working to fixed time which I'm definitely going to lean towards given the general consensus here."
