Attendance Forges Ahead on BTME Day One

Attendance at BTME topped 3,000 on the first day of the show, outstripping last year's inflow by nearly 300, as overseas numbers nearly doubled on 2015.

Visitors were clamouring through the doors as soon as the show opened at 8.30, with walkways in all five halls heaving throughout the day.

Pre-registrations were up on last year too. "They are the highest in my time as BIGGA Chief Executive," Jim Croxton noted. "A 10% rise in day one attendance on 2015 demonstrates the strength and sustainability of BTME as a must-visit date in the turfcare calendar."

With Wednesday and Thursday in prospect, BTME 2016 looks set to record memorable interest from turf professionals at home and overseas.
