21-24 January 2024 - Harrogate Convention Centre
At BIGGA we believe that educated greenkeepers make the world a better place for everyone associated with golf. Armed with the knowledge that comes through professional development, greenkeepers are able to produce better standards of course presentation. In addition, they're better able to handle other matters such as staff management, budgeting and countless other topics that all contribute to a more positive working environment. Professional development also plays a key role in helping our members achieve their long-term career ambitions.
Continue to Learn is a key part of that. Continue to Learn is BIGGA's world-renowned education conference, providing the equivalent of two hours-worth of education for every golf club in the country. That makes it among the most influential and important annual events in the golf and greenkeeping calendar.
Next year's programme will be divided into three parts: Conference, Classes and Seminars.
Spanning two separate auditoriums, the Conference will feature a wide choice of sessions over two days. By purchasing a Conference ticket, you will have free rein to wander between the venues and select an education programme that's bespoke to your requirements.
Each day of the conference will kick off with a general session before splitting into two distinct programmes. At the end of the day we'll bring everyone back together for a key final session.
You can purchase one or two day tickets for the Conference and discounts are available for individual teams.
Classes may be half a day, a full day or even two days in duration, but they are learning opportunities based around a specific area of knowledge that you would like to improve upon.
Topics include: irrigation; renovation; strategic planning; cutting units; managing stress; managing teams; water efficiency; drought management; conflict resolution; recruitment; supervisory skills; fertiliser plans; mathematics; turf machinery maintenance; soil analysis; reading trial data; tree surveying; building a budget; positive thinking; identifying grass species; drainage; motivation; utilising data; personality profiling; health & safety; team building and many more.
Taking place in the Harrogate Convention Centre's Blue Zone, these sessions will be an opportunity to gain knowledge without leaving the exhibition floor.
The 14 free-to-attend seminars will be hosted by exhibitors at BTME and headphones will be provided to all attendees so you don't miss anything.
Visit the BTME Website for details of the education event at the Harrogate Convention Centre.
