Following hot on the heels of the launch of the Continue to Learn Education Programme, BIGGA is delighted to reveal that the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) has been completely sold out, as exhibitors have rushed to secure their place at Europe's largest turf management exhibition.
Within two months of BTME 2017 in January, more than 65% of exhibitors booked their spot to return, and with three months still to go until the event returns in January, every available space within the Harrogate Convention Centre has been booked up.
A waiting list has also been set up to register interest from any companies who have not secured a space.
Over 140 exhibitors have signed up for BTME 2018, which will take place on 23-25 January 2018, the event will feature the biggest names in the turf management industry.
BIGGA Business Development Manager Jill Rodham said: "Following the incredible success of BTME 2017, we have been delighted that so many companies signed up to return to the next exhibition.
"BTME continues to grow year on year and we're delighted to welcome so many new faces, who will be making their BTME debut in 2018.
"Each year we're thrilled at how the turf industry makes the pilgrimage to Harrogate to rekindle old friendships, build new relationships, and showcase the latest innovations and developments for the benefit of BIGGA members."
More than 4,500 attendees are expected through the doors of the Harrogate Convention Centre. Coupled with the Continue to Learn Education Programme, which features more than 250 hours of greenkeeper education, and the Golf Business & Industry Convention (GolfBIC), BTME 2018 is set to be one of the busiest ever.
