Grounds Maintenance Roadshow - 9th April 2024 - Fleet Line Markers

Despite the inclement weather on April 9th, 2024, the Grounds Maintenance Roadshow successfully unfolded at Birmingham City University’s Pavilion, Moor Lane. Over 20 companies graced the event to present their latest products and services. Such gatherings serve as vital platforms for the industry, spotlighting innovations and fostering crucial networking opportunities.

The adverse weather failed to deter a significant turnout of visitors, persisting throughout the morning and afternoon. Despite the persistent rain, attendees braved the elements to engage with exhibitors. The Pavilion proved an ideal venue, boasting ample indoor space for coffee breaks and lunches, alongside a secure outdoor area for demonstrations and exhibits.

We spoke to Iain Courage – Sales director of Fleet Line Markers and organiser of the event who said on LinkedIn ‘The weather didn’t stop a good number of visitors coming along throughout the morning and into the afternoon. Although there was no break in the rain and wind (&cold!) most visitors ventured outside to look at what was on offer. Heartfelt thanks to all the exhibitors, the visitors, and the staff at BCU who were all extremely helpful during the setup and on the day! Also special thanks to Sean! The BCU logo looked fantastic on the bank and resisted the downpours really well! Next time we’ll be sure to to tick the box for good weather, looking forward to doing it again at Moor Lane, what a great venue! Love it!’

Regardless of the weather challenges, the event provided an excellent occasion to connect with both familiar faces and new acquaintances, including our close friends from Fleet, Kersten UK, and Howardson Group. It underscored the indispensable value of in-person networking, highlighting the limitations of virtual interactions.

Overall, the event was impeccably organized, and we eagerly anticipate the next installment. Gratitude is owed to Iain and Fleet for extending the invitation to exhibit and orchestrating a memorable day.
