Registration opens for BTME and Continue to Learn 2020
Building on the incredible success of BTME 2019, Europe’s largest turf management exhibition returns to the Harrogate Convention Centre from Tuesday 21 to Thursday 23 January 2020.
BTME will feature more than 150 exhibiting companies spread across four zones at the Harrogate Convention Centre. Alongside the exhibitors will be the Green Room Podcast Live hosted by Curtis Tyrrell MG CGCS, a Sustainability Zone in association with the Golf Environment Organisation and the STRI Group will be showcasing science in action in a live turf laboratory. There’ll also be the return of Golf Course Construction LIVE and the New Products Area.
After the first day of the exhibition all visitors are invited to join the BIGGA Welcome Celebration hosted by Naga Munchetty in the main auditorium. This event features two drinks receptions and will celebrate all the finest achievements and milestones from this year.
We’re kicking off the second day of BTME in style, with the free-to-attend BTME Breakfast Club taking a look at “Cock-ups, Disasters and Calamities” out on the course, following the BTME Early Bird 5k Run sponsored by Syngentahelping to raise awareness of mental health.
As always, Continue to Learn will kick off the week, with the education programme evolving to better suit the needs of BIGGA members. Taking place from Sunday 19 to Wednesday 22 January, the association’s Learning & Development team has put together its largest-ever package of education.
Continue to Learn features more than 250 hours of education delivered by over 90 speakers.
The Golf Course Architecture and Management Forum will showcase collaborations between architects, course managers and their greenkeeping teams at some of the biggest projects in golf, including Royal Portrush, Royal Dornoch and The JCB Golf & Country Club.
Regular favourites such as the Turf Managers’ Conference, the Deputies’ Conference and the Young Greenkeepers’ Conference will also return.
