“SALTEX 2018 has been a phenomenal platform for us, so much so that we’ve already booked our stand for 2019 and have secured an even bigger space.
“At the show we unveiled our new FORZA Alu110 360° football goal wheels which attracted huge interest from football clubs. We have since sold a large number to Premier League and leading international clubs.
“SALTEX allowed for the introduction to many established pitch contractors and we are now working on one project which includes supplying FORZA Alu110 goals and two tier shelters to Colliers Park, Wrexham (FAW National Training Centre) in collaboration with CLS Sport.
“We also had the opportunity to network with many top grounds people and have already supplied and installed indoor football protection netting for West Ham United FC’s indoor academy training centre – a lead that came from SALTEX.”

Jeremy Hoyle, Earlsmere
“We picked up a couple of major national accounts as a direct result of having a stand at SALTEX and have seen an increase in sales from a number of accounts. We have already committed to have the same stand at SALTEX 2019.”

“At SALTEX we launched our new range of Westermann weed and moss brushes which has been highly successful. We are now placing regular orders with the German suppliers and have received great feedback from customers who have purchased since the show.”

“We’ve been coming to the show for the last four years, and we are still a fairly new company, we’ve been going 8 years now. SALTEX is a great show for a wide variety of customers, we sell to schools, sports clubs, councils, contractors, so you get the full mix here at SALTEX. It’s great to catch up with existing customers and it is fantastic to gain new leads too. It’s been a really busy show, potentially one of the busiest so far. We’re looking forward to coming back next year again.”
Darren Rodman, Pitchmark
“We thought SALTEX 2017 was a good show. We met with customers both old and new and secured some new business from the show. It was a good opportunity for us to showcase our products to a wide audience, from golf to sports grounds, and encompassing both natural and synthetic turf managers.”

“We’ve been a long-term supporter of SALTEX, the venue has perfect access and it is a great time of year for visitors because they are not so busy and it has great travel links which is great for overseas visitors. We’ve found to be really good this year, we’ve been very pleased with the volume of visitors, we’ve had some great guys come through from the high end, the Premiership guys, the County Cricket guys but also from grassroots and local sports teams. We’ve also been really pleased with the number of overseas visitors – the UK is seen as a centre of excellence for turf management – we’ve had visitors from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Spain, Denmark, Norway, so we’ve had a really good show and we are really pleased.”
Derek Smith, Johnsons Sports Seeds
