GROUNDSFEST REVEAL CHANGES FOR 2024
And confirm new date
The organisers of the new GroundsFest trade show have confirmed that the date for 2024's edition will be slightly earlier than this year, with it scheduled to take place at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on September 10 and 11.
Building on the feedback received from the first edition, the organisers have also said they are working to implement improvements to the show. One of the significant changes is the introduction of what they describe as a "more free-flowing layout." They say the addition of a new entrance is intended to reduce the walk to the event.
The camping zone is set to see new facilities and the festival area is also in for a makeover, with plans underway to introduce new attractions.
Organisers have also said that they have seen an over 90% rebooking rate from exhibitors and, according to the post-show exhibitor survey, 93% of exhibitors generated new sales leads.
Marketing director of the show, Chris Bennett, said, “The only way to evolve GroundsFest is by listening to the industry. This commitment to responsiveness and adaptability ensures that each edition of GroundsFest is a reflection of the evolving needs and desires of the landscaping and grounds management community.”
