Review of the new biennial event of the world of professional sports turf
QUALITY VISITORS FOR EXCEPTIONAL EXCHANGES
The 48h du Gazon Sport Pro ended on Thursday 26 November at the end of the afternoon after two days of opening. This first edition, organized within the Stade de France®, is a success, with nearly 500 visitors each day. It brought together all the key players in the world of professional sports turf in the hexagon: groundsman, managers, offices, companies specializing in the creation, renovation, maintenance of sports fields, etc., but also elected officials and experts of the stadium committees of the professional soccer and rugby leagues, president and directors of the French golf federation, president of the Association of Golf Directors, president of the AGREF, in charge of France Galop. All came to participate in the concept of an original event proposed by Profield Events: a suitable place, both to inform about the companies of the "Supplier Village", to exchange experiences and expertise among colleagues, and to train and mini-technical conferences facilitated by French and European high-level speakers.
The symposiums and mini-conferences held continuously during the two days were sold out. It must be recognized that the subjects dealt with provided concrete keys for advancing the quality of turf for professional sports. As for the managers of the suppliers present, they were satisfied with their participation in the 48h du Gazon Sport Pro, recognizing having the opportunity to link privileged contacts with this specific typology of visitors. For some, this was even an opportunity to meet new prospects, as the professional users attending attend few trade shows.
Frédéric Bondoux concludes: "We are satisfied with the results of this first edition, which was held in a rather special context, clouded by recent events in our country. This new concept has proven its worth and we are therefore very confident for its future. The 48h du Gazon Sport Pro will be back in two years, at the end of 2017. "
In the meantime, it is the maintenance professionals of ground turf grassed for amateur sport who will find all the information relating to the installation and maintenance of their playing surfaces, on Salonvert (Saint-Chéron in the Essonne) Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 september 2016.
