The international conference on artificial grass from raw material & manufacture through to end use specification, installation and user experience
27 - 29 March 2017, Meliá Castilla Hotel, Madrid, Spain
Organised by Applied Market Information Ltd. (AMI)
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.
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.
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.

What if cannot attend an AMI event because of bad weather, industrial action, sickness or bereavement?
Unfortunately AMI cannot take responsibility for such problems. We recommend that you ensure that your travel plans leave you enough spare time to cope with weather delays or industrial action and that your travel insurance policy will recompense you for any financial loss that you suffer as a result of being unable to travel for other reasons. Remember that if you cannot attend an event then you can always send a colleague in your place at no charge.
Do I need a visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event?
It is entirely possible that you may need a valid visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event. This is especially the case for individuals attending our events and holding non-European passports. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements with the embassy of the host country in your home location. We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country concerned.
Does the conference programme ever change?
AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programs. However it is a fact of life that from time to time amendments have to be made as a result of changes to speakers’ circumstances or corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status of any conference program.
Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
Naturally AMI welcomes offers of papers for presentation at our conferences provided such papers meet our quality and relevance requirements. Within each conference heading you will find a section on ‘Call for Papers’, which tells you what to do if you want to offer to present a paper at a specific conference.
