The awards acknowledge the high standards achieved by volunteer and professional teams as well as individuals at facilities ranging from grassroots to professional stadia level. Now in its seventh year, the event – sponsored by Rigby Taylor and Top Green – will be staged at the Birmingham Metropole Hotel on 4 November, the opening day of the SALTEX exhibition at the neighbouring NEC.
Host Mark Saggers from talkSPORT radio will announce the winners of the 19 award categories.
IOG chief executive Geoff Webb commented: "The annual awards have gone from strength to strength since they were launched, which is testament to their continued popularity.
"We're especially pleased at the record number of advance bookings this year when the event is being held alongside SALTEX – which itself has more exhibitors than it did last year. Together, the awards and SALTEX will showcase everything that is great about the groundscare industry."
