AMI's Grass Yarn & Tufters Forum 2017 will take place on the 27-29 March 2017, in Madrid, Spain. It is the 12th edition of ​the annual international conference and will look at technical and commercial developments in artificial grass/synthetic turf. The forum is the leading annual event for sharing insight into developments in artificial grass (synthetic turf) from around the world. The Grass Yarn & Tufters Forum 2017 will provide a unique opportunity to hear about recent product, technological and performance developments, discuss structural changes in the market and learn about the industry's growth prospects by region and by application (sports & landscape/leisure). Speakers in the last couple of years have included sports associations, municipal buyers, industry associations, turf and component producers, raw material producers, testing houses and maintenance experts. The artificial grass market is currently achieving double digit growth rates which is attracting new market entrants. This, coupled with changing technologies and end user expectations, makes artificial grass a dynamic industry to be involved in. It gives good prospects for those that position themselves well, but threatens those who do not remain alert to the changes which are underway. The Grass Yarn & Tufters Forum 2017 ​will give delegates the opportunity to discuss the industry's issues, lobby for changes and gain understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing the business. The Grass Yarn & Tufters Forum 2017 will ​attract senior personnel involved in all aspects of the supply-chain from materials and machinery through to the production of synthetic grass and its installation.
