The only French event exclusively dedicated to the maintenance of ground turf for professional sports.
After a first edition in 2015 that brought together 1,000 groundsman for the pro sports fields, the 48H du Gazon Sport Pro returned to the Stade de France®. The concept remains identical but many evolutions have been put in place, foreshadowing an even more grandiose event, like the mythical place that welcomes it.
THE INNOVATIONS OF 2017 :
Interview with Frédéric Bondoux, Commissioner General of the 48h du Gazon Sport Pro
You have created Les 48h du Gazon Sport Pro in 2015. There have been a lot of developments in this market since. Is the event relevant as for today ?
Today, we talk about lawns, including in the mass media, to talk about game performance, safety of players or horses, stadiums new economic models, etc. For stadiums and racetracks, it is an economic issue but also an image issue.
For the golf courses also: the number of members decreases, it is thus necessary to sell more greenfees to a clientele for whom the most important criterion of choice is the quality of the field, which is essential in the choice of a golf.
Today, the 48h du Gazon Sport Pro contribute to the valorization of the companies know-how, groundsmen, and in particular French ones who managed to improve their knowledge, not better and no worse than our European neighbors.
