World experiences have been brought together today at the Petrovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia. The hosts Engo Group put on a line up of speakers to describe their experiences on modern stadium pitch management.
The audience, made up of groundsmen, stadium managers, contractors and architects, listened to a variety of subjects covering pitch constructions in Russia and Brazil for forthcoming World Cups, as well as pitch protection and lighting systems.
Pitchcare's very own MD, Dave Saltman, also held the floor's attention while his presentation described the construction and management differences of modern pitch reinforcement and the reasons as to how they have evolved in the last 20 years.
The conference appears to have been very well received and reinforces the need to offer more education globally to help natural turf management succeed in the long term.
