The Grounds Management Association (GMA), show organisers of SALTEX, launches social media campaign #SeeYouAtSALTEX and is encouraging everyone attending the show to participate.
#SeeYouAtSALTEX is the new 2021 event campaign, and the GMA is encouraging everyone attending the show to get involved through social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
How to get involved
- Post a photo
Simply post a photo on social media supported by the hashtag - #SeeYouAtSALTEX. This could be of yourself (selfies welcome), your workplace, or a project that you are particularly proud of.
- Post a video
Alternatively, you may want to post a video (approximately 20 seconds) in which you introduce yourself and say exactly why you are looking forward to SALTEX this year. Don't forget to sign off the video by saying 'See You At SALTEX'.
SALTEX, founded in 1938, will be taking place at the NEC on 3 and 4 November 2021. The show is set to be the most vibrant and celebrated event in its long history.
"Together we have witnessed some dark times due to the Covid-19 pandemic and we hope that SALTEX 2021 will be a welcome antidote when it opens its doors in November," said GMA CEO Geoff Webb.
Following a difficult year for the sector, SALTEX is set to play an integral role in helping the industry to recover; allowing visitors and exhibitors to network, collaborate and support one another more than ever before. The event will be an occasion for the entire industry to reunite.
"We've been through this together and we are coming out of this together," continued Geoff. "It is time to celebrate resilience, unity, people, companies, and all things grounds. It is time to see old faces, new ones and it is time to say See You At SALTEX for all our buyers, suppliers, educators, and members. We cannot wait to unite everyone at our event."
There are some great prizes up for grabs from a range of SALTEX 2021 exhibitors including Root Start Plus™ - a biostimulant-based fertiliser from Advanced Grass Solutions; two knapsack sprayers from Hozelock Exel; a Remote Rain Gauge from Metos UK and a STIHL GHE 105 Electric Shredder from Spaldings Groundcare.
Following a photo or video submission, tagging #SeeYouAtSALTEX, the lucky winners will be selected at random on the first day of the show (3 November).
"SALTEX 2021 is an ideal opportunity to meet in person fellow grounds management professionals to discuss various topics and look at new innovations, both of which we haven't been able to do for some time," said Geoff.
"We cannot wait to welcome you to the show's 75th anniversary - it will certainly be one to remember."
