A new two-day kit showcase organised by Toro distributor Lely UK attracted hundreds of visitors from the sector, the company has said.

Lely swapped its roadshows in favour of the new event, held at the end of September at Wyboston Lakes, in Bedfordshire.

Lely's 'Turfcare Live' gave users and buyers the chance to examine and test drive the latest Toro turf equipment, and learn more about the company’s golf irrigation products. TYM Tractors and Otterbine water aerators, also distributed by Lely, were included.

Lely’s Toro sales manager Jeff Anguige said: "We decided to ring the changes this year and hold one event at a single venue instead of doing roadshows across the country. I’m delighted to say our new Turfcare Live format worked extremely well and we were pleased with the fantastic turnout from everyone."

The distributor said visitors were  "a lively mix of greenkeepers, groundsmen, contractors and landscapers".
