Specialist seed merchant Hurrells is celebrating following a bumper number of sales leads at Europe's leading showcase for turf and grounds care professionals and buyers.
It was the first time that the company had exhibited at the event, BTME Harrogate, which took place from 24 to 26 January at Harrogate International Centre..
The company used the event to showcase the following :
• Winter active high quality turf perennial, Collosseum, which was recently used at the Rugby World Cup in Eden Park, New Zealand - Collosseum grows at significantly lower temperatures yet still provides first class football and rugby pitches, growing at 3 degrees rather than the usual 8-12 degrees;
• A mixture using the unique merits of Collosseum - entitled Coldstart - that also uses the highly rated Carnac to underpin the quality and robust repair values on heavy-wear winter turf;
Nick Gladstone, Managing Director of Hurrells explained : "BTME offered us an unparalleled opportunity to meet potential and current customers and network with some of the industry's top manufacturers and service providers. We now have 14 pages of potential sales leads which is a fantastic return!
"Our customer base in the sports and amenity turf community continues to grow; we offer a highly reliable service with excellent delivery times; two days is standard and we also offer a next day service. This - combined with our expert advice on amenity grass seed mixtures - has made us invaluable to many businesses up and down the country. We have a comprehensive range of mixtures - and specialist ones readily supplied - and also offer competitive pricing."
The event hosted more than 54 educational workshops and seminars; the exhibition - which will celebrate its 25th consecutive show next year - encompasses every product in the industry including turf and seeds, water, lake and pond management, artificial grass, course furniture, drainage, fertilizers, groundscare machinery and equipment, irrigation, mowers, soil biology, spraying and wetting agents.
