The expansion of BTME has provided BIGGA with the opportunity to engage with members on a greater scale throughout the exhibition.
BIGGA’s stand, located in the Blue Zone at the Harrogate Convention Centre, will provide a completely new experience throughout the show.
One of the highlights will be a theatre area, hosting regular short talks, where you can learn more about some of the events and initiatives that take place across the association and a range of other topics.
Another highlight is the Member Wellness Area, where representatives from various bodies, including skin cancer and mental health charities and others will be on hand to discuss various issues relating to mental and physical health and wellbeing. Confidential meeting rooms will be available if you would like to have a quiet conversation about any of these issues.
The Job Shop will return once again, with the latest employment opportunities available. The Learning & Development team will also be on hand to explain how you can progress your career through Continuing Professional Development and other education, including higher education scholarship opportunities.
The Membership Services Team will talk to you about the benefits of BIGGA membership, from discounted shopping and travel offers to the BIGGA Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund, which seeks to provide aid to current and past BIGGA members who find themselves in difficulties.
Advice will be on hand relating to the BIGGA website, launched in May this year, and you can learn how to utilise this useful tool to its full potential.
Finally, a Greenkeeping Members’ Lounge will provide seating and refreshments allowing you to take a break from the excitement of the exhibition halls and an opportunity to sit and speak with other BIGGA members and exhibition attendees.
