Gordon Banks joined ArtificialGrass.com for the day at the 2016 NMBS show

One of the most prestigious artificial grass brands returned to the annual National Merchant Buying Society (NMBS) exhibition recently in Coventry.

ArtificialGrass.com joined around 260 exhibitors and 700 delegates at the annual trade show at the Ricoh Area and marked the event with a guest appearance from goalkeeping legend Gordon Banks, who was there to meet and greet NMBS members, sign autographs and present a framed signed 1966 England Football Shirt.

The trade show gave delegates the chance to speak with experienced turf professionals from ArtificialGrass.com, who were on hand to give advice and tips on everything from installing artificial grass to promoting new products in the range. A framed 1966 England shirt signed by four of the World Cup winners, which marks 50 years since the famous day, was up for grabs for anyone who placed orders on the day. The lucky winner was ArtificialGrass.com customer, Kay Dean from the JT Atkinson Middlesbrough branch.

Pete Toghill, Commercial Director for ArtificialGrass.com, said: “The whole day was a huge success and we were delighted with the amount of interest we received and the number of orders generated.

“It was an honor having football legend, Gordon Banks on our stand and it created a great buzz with people coming for photographs and autographs.

“ArtificialGrass.com has established itself as the artificial grass of choice for the independent builders’ merchants industry thanks to our ongoing investment in product development and creative service packages that we are able to offer our clients.

“Our realistic grasses supported with first class service, advice and tailored training programmes enable merchants to understand how to sell our products, which are just some of the reasons why our products are the fastest growing in the industry.”
