Institute of Groundsmanship to hold inaugural conference in October

The Institute of Groundsmanship (IoG) plans to address turf disease and skills gaps at its inaugural conference for groundsmen in October.

The outline programme for the IoG's inaugural Industry Sports Turf Conference at Arsenal FC's Emirates Stadium addresses all the key issues being faced by the sports turf industry.

Carbon footprint, lighting rigs, turf diseases and skills gaps are the top-of-the-agenda topics being discussed at the one-day National Conference on 15 October.

There will also be an exclusive This is Our Industry facts and figures insight into the UK grounds care sector, plus a hard-hitting open discussion debate will feature a panel of experts from across all industry sectors.

In addition, break-out sessions will focus on, for example, pesticides, red diesel, the volunteer sector and preparing for retirement, and there will also be a business advisory clinic.

Speakers are yet to be announced. There will also be an awards evening.
