IOG Saltex 2011 video highlights
Watch our video 'diary' of the 2011 show
IOG Saltex started humbly in 1938 at The Hurlingham Club in London with just 25 companies showing their products. Known as 'The Field Day' it was organised by the National Association of Groundsmen. After a break during the war years it restarted in 1947, at the same venue until 1965 when it moved to the London University Sportsground at Motspur Park.
IOG Saltex experienced considerable growth over the next 16 years and by 1979 the show's expansion required a move to a bigger venue, The Royal Windsor Racecourse.
For 3 years 1989 - 1991 the show moved to Peterborough but in 1992 returned to Windsor where it is to this day.
