Thinking about attending the premier turf management conference? The British and International Golf Greenkeepers' Association have some compelling reasons why you should come along... The BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) takes place in just two weeks and BIGGA is appealing to all golf club managers to take a day or two out of their busy schedule to attend the trade show and provide the opportunity for their greenkeeping team to sample some of the incredible education that is on offer. With frequent mild weather, golf courses have remained busy all winter and opportunities for professional development have been few and far between. Heads have been down, grafting on the tools as the golf industry anticipates another busy summer. Before the season kicks into high gear again, BTME provides an opportunity to take stock, refresh and reinvigorate ourselves for the year ahead. As a club manager, you might be asking why you should pay your staff to be away from the club for a day or longer, but the facts are clear. Access to professional development opportunities keeps employees loyal, engaged with their daily roles and inspired to try new things and push their course to new heights. By the end of March, most major winter projects are complete and the course is tidy, while ground temperatures haven’t warmed sufficiently enough for daily summer cutting and maintenance to be necessary yet. There’s a lull out on the course, a moment of peace before things really tee off, and it’s the perfect opportunity to sample some world class education and check out the latest products and innovations from over 120 of the industry’s leading companies. So much of the world has changed in the past two years and sports turf professionals are faced with problems that include climate change, the availability of resources and issues regarding staff recruitment and retention. The only way to overcome these challenges is by accessing the industry’s best education and networking with the leading minds across the sport. The best place to do that is BTME, taking place at the Harrogate Convention Centre from 22 to 24 March 2022.
