SAPCA’s annual Technical Meeting is one of the industry’s most popular events of the year, providing an unparalleled programme of seminars and workshops on the most important technical topics of the day.
It also offers an invaluable opportunity for networking with colleagues from across the sports and play industry, as well as with our many guests from key organisations. As always, the event is open to everyone in the sports and play construction industry, whether SAPCA members or not.
The 2023 event will be held at Holywell Park in the Loughborough University complex on Thursday 30 November. As well as the full day’s programme of sessions, the event exhibition will provide exhibitors and event sponsors with an opportunity to promote their products and services to all delegates.
Highlights from the day’s programme are:
- New FIFA Manual for 2024.
- FIH – Dry pitch project for the future of the game
- World Rugby session to consider changes to standards?
- LTA Padel – SAPCA’s new CoP – and the technical information for covered padel structures.
