The grounds exhibition SALTEX's 75th anniversary is due to take place on November 3 and 4 at the NEC, Birmingham.
The GMA has reported an influx of new business and enquiries from companies eager to have a presence at SALTEX and several stand upgrades from existing exhibitors in recent weeks.
"It is very encouraging and we're ready to go," continued Geoff. "The support from the industry has been overwhelming and I'd like to thank our exhibitors for their patience and for sticking by us as we transferred from 2020 to 2021."
"We are an industry which loathes to stand still, and I think the restrictions have shown that we are missing meeting people; that businesses are keen to see their customers in person again and that they are missing that trade and general conversation. Ultimately, it has amplified the power and the benefits of live events."
"There could be more twists and turns to come and we will remain diligent and prepared. The safety of everyone attending is our main priority, so we will continue to follow the guidance and implement the necessary procedures, if needed in November."
"We're putting absolutely everything into the show, and we can't wait to celebrate this landmark occasion with you all. I am sure that SALTEX 2021 will show us at our finest."
"SALTEX promises to showcase the talent in our industry and the changes and the new directions that we can anticipate."
