BTME 2016 next January is shaping up to be the biggest yet as the industry looks forward to the annual new year gathering in Harrogate.
Organisers BIGGA have listened to visitor research and exhibitor feedback and updated BTME’s hours with the exhibition now open from 8.30am-5pm on Tuesday 19 January 2016, 8.30am-5.30pm on Wednesday and 8.30am-2.30pm on Thursday.
The exhibition covers five Halls with Hall Q of the Harrogate International Centre complementing the other four Halls which will again be packed with exhibitors from every corner of the turf management industry.
BTME will again feature the best education the turf management industry has to offer with another range of fantastic speakers gearing up to present at Continue to Learn 2016, which runs from Sunday 17 January to Wednesday 20 January.
Last year’s programme broke all records, delivering 215 hours of education to nearly 3,000 delegates, and hopes are high of exceeding these numbers again. An unrivalled range of workshops, session and seminars are planned with speakers including Beth Guertal, Professor of Turfgrass Management and Soil Fertility at Auburn University, Dr John Kaminski, Turfgrass Management Professor from Penn State University and Mike O’Keefe, Global Placement Manager at Ohio State University – plus dozens more.
Continue to Learn again incorporates the increasingly popular Turf Managers Conference, which has outgrown its original venue of the Crown Hotel and will be held in the HIC’s Royal Hall. For the first time, Continue to Learn will also feature a half day educational conference in association with the IOG focusing on groundsmanship related content. The full programme will be released in October.
BIGGA CEO Jim Croxton told The Landscaper  “We’re hugely excited about BTME 2016 as thoughts turn to our flagship annual event. We’re particularly delighted to be hosting GolfBIC and this is another signal of our clear intentions to drive more and more of the industry’s key decision makers to Harrogate.
“This means thousands of influential figures from across the turf management industry will fill the Halls throughout the week ensuring high quality enquiries and conversations for our exhibitors.!
