The Clubhouse is here: Saltex announces new social space for 2023

Rosie Duckworthin Exhibition News

SALTEX organisers know from post-show feedback that networking was the second biggest highlight for visitors attending the 2022 show and with that in mind are launching The Clubhouse, a relaxed, licensed, social space for 2023 on SALTEX's busy show floor.

With a bar, relaxed seating options and a private area called The Trophy Room which can be booked for pre-arranged meetups, The Clubhouse offers visitors and exhibitors the ideal space to boost their network.

Sarah Cunningham, director of commercial and events at the GMA, says: "Creating a space where visitors and exhibitors can relax, unwind and build connections with old friends and new colleagues has been a priority following visitor and exhibitor feedback from the last two shows. Crucially, we wanted to create a space that means attendees can sit down and catch-up without having to leave the show floor.

"The Clubhouse will cater to these desires perfectly, offering attendees a comfortable place to sit down and a bar where they can purchase drinks and food at competitive prices. The Clubhouse is all about maximising the visitors' experience and bringing the industry closer together."

As an ideal space for groups to host dedicated meet-ups, the GMA is working with a number of grounds management communities to host members' meetings in The Trophy Room with more details to be shared in the weeks leading up to SALTEX.

With attendees coming from all backgrounds and levels of grounds care, including elite sport, estates and landscaping, parks, playgrounds, and education settings, you will have the chance to meet likeminded people and expand your network of grounds care colleagues.

Sarah concludes: "The reason SALTEX has achieved success for so long is by constantly adapting to change and listening to feedback to ensure the show continues to cater to the needs of the sector. The Clubhouse is the latest example of this."
