Renowned for their comprehensive reviews of various tool and machinery brands, Machinery Nation is perceived as a trusted voice within the industry, perfectly aligning with the authenticity sought by GroundsFest.

The judges were particularly impressed by how the marketing efforts surrounding this debut event not only sold the vision of GroundsFest but also played an indispensable role in its success. Winning the 2024 Exhibition News Best Influencer Marketing Campaign Award signifies a remarkable achievement for GroundsFest, setting a high standard for future events in the grounds professional sector.

With the support of Fusion Media and Machinery Nation, GroundsFest has truly made its mark on the industry, promising an even brighter future ahead.
