New turf show comes to Europe for 2010

The Turf & Grass Expo 2010 -- an international sports conventions for artificial and natural grass -- will take place in Amsterdam on 8-9 December 2010.

The events include the Turf & Grass Exhibition for consumers and the trade, and the Turf & Grass Conference, which will be run in parallel.

More than 3,000 representatives from sports federations, professional and amateur clubs, and government bodies are anticipated at the event where they will have the opportunity to mingle with leading manufacturers and suppliers of artificial and natural turf. 

A programme of speakers including representatives from bodies like FIFA, UEFA and the RFU will present the latest thinking and technologies in their sectors.

Stenhousemuir Football Club chairman David Reid is backing the event and will deliver a presentation about why some clubs have switched to artificial turf.

Reid said: "This type of expo would have certainly accelerated us in making our decision in switching to artificial turf. It will definitely help other clubs making their decisions in future."
