The launch of a new show, Groundsfest, to be held at Stonleigh Park in September 2023 has once again opened up the debate about amount of turf management shows in the UK.

As things stand there will be four shows (at least) in 12 months focussing on turf management products and services.

In this episode,Chris Bassett, the md of Fusion Media, organisers of Groundsfest talks about the rationale behind the new event, whilst Peter Driver, who has managed trade stands for manufacturers over the years, will argue that the turfcare industry ideally needs one major event.
