Thornton Sports enjoy discussing new projects ...

It has been a great week for Thornton Sports as we have been lucky to exhibit at two of the most prestigious exhibitions in the UK. 

The SAPCA Sports Facility Show took place on Tuesday 26th November at Allianz Park in London with over 400 delegates attending the one day event. Sports Clubs, Schools, Leisure Operators and Local Authorities visited the Thornton Sports stand which offered information, resources and advice to anyone involved in the development of sports facilities.

The SAPCA exhibition also offered information on the latest developments, expert advice, and seminars covering topics such as:

  • The Design of Multi-Use Games Areas
  • Understanding the Choice of SyntheticTurf
  • Measuring and Managing Sports Turf Performance
  • Latest Technology in Lighting for Sports Facilities

After a fantastic day developing new working relationships at Allianz Park, Thornton Sports headed back up north to Birmingham for The Academies Show which was held at the Birmingham NEC on Wednesday 27th November.

Over 3,000 schools attended the exhibition to meet leading school suppliers such as Thornton Sports, which gave us the opportunity to showcase our products and services and share our knowledge with schools who are planning new facilities.

The below seminars are just a selection of the great seminars which were on offer at the Academies Show:

  • Capital Funding for Academies
  • Academy Procurement
  • Academy Budgets and Financial Assurance
  • How to Become and Academy

The next Academies Show will be taking place on Wednesday 30th April 2014 at Excel in London, and SAPCA are also planning more Sports Facility Shows for next year. For further information on these events just follow the links or call us on 01282 777 345.
