The Sports Facility Show The Sports Facility Show 2

Thornton Sports offer advice and assistance at The Sports Facility Show

Building new or refurbished sports facilities is a complex process, and making the right decisions to ensure the facility meets all your requirements whilst maximising how far the budget will go can be daunting. We were delighted to take part in this week’s Sports Facility Show in Birmingham which offered information, resources and advice to anyone involved in the development of sports facilities.

Over 100 people attended the one-day event which took place at Edgbaston Stadium on Tuesday 20th May. Hosted by The Sports and Play Construction Association, the exhibition offered information on the latest developments, expert advice, and seminars covering topics such as:

  • Keynote: Legacy and Beyond!
  • Top Tips for Successful Funding Applications
  • Current Trends and Developments in Synthetic Turf Systems
  • Workshop: Innovation for Customer Retention
  • Maintenance of Synthetic Sports Surfaces
  • Effective Marketing to attract and retain participants to your sports facility
  • Workshop: How to use social media to drive footfall to your sports facility
  • The Design of Multi-Use Games Areas
  • Understanding the choice of indoor sports surfaces
  • Outdoor Sports Lighting
  • How to deliver a successful project
  • ‘Drop in’ clinic: information, advice & support

Sports Clubs, Schools, Leisure Operators and Local Authorities visited the Thornton Sports stand, and we enjoyed discussing their plans with them. The next Sports Facility Show will be taking place on Tuesday 17th June at Leeds United FC. Why not come and join us? We’d love to catch up with you there.
