Leading the industry

ESTC members meet regularly to discuss new developments, contribute to guidance documents and legislation, and to meet their peers. Meetings take place in person and electronically. All meetings are guided by the principles of the Competition Laws as drafted by the EU.

The various meetings hosted by ESTC can only be attended by members or by invitation from the ESTC.

Working Group meetings

ESTC Working Groups are the engine of the synthetic turf industry. All Working Groups study, discuss and develop guidelines or advice on particular synthetic turf construction components, procedures or industry practices. Participation in Working Group activities and meetings is open to all members. The agenda and progress for each Working Group is overseen by a team of core members.

Annual congress

The annual congress offers members the exclusive opportunity to learn about upcoming developments and trends. Each congress takes place at a site and setting that allows members to mix business with leisure, and catch up with old friends. The event runs over three days with updates from all Working Group chairs, followed by a second day, which features a range of speakers covering a variety of relevant subjects. A pub night and dinner evening provide delegates ample time to meet their peers in an informal setting while a site visit on the third day offers the opportunity to see and experience a new development.


ESTC regularly organises webinars to inform and explain to our members about developments and trends that are set to change the market, the product or the industry. Webinars are often hosted by external professionals who are experts on their topic. Each webinar lasts for a maximum of 60 minutes and has ample time for a Q&A session at the end.
