Exhibitor bookings at BTME 2019 have reaffirmed the event’s status as the premier sports turf maintenance exhibition in Europe, with an estimated 160 industry-leading companies getting involved.
After the success of the 2018 edition of the show, the decision was made to expand the available floor space by around 25% to allow even more potential exhibitors to get involved and to allow existing clients to better showcase their wares.
BTME has become hugely important for greenkeepers across Europe – more than 10% of visitors in 2010 were from outside the UK. By bringing leading manufacturers and innovators together in one place, BIGGA members can discover the latest information and methods of dealing with challenges out on the golf course, helping them to achieve high standards in an increasingly-difficult climate.
Karen Proctor is director of global marketing at Textron Golf and she explained why the turf machinery manufacturer returns to Harrogate for BTME each year.
“As one of the industry leaders in our field, it is a fantastic opportunity to showcase new products, talk to members of the press about these products and network with our customers, dealers and industry professionals,” she said.
“The staff at BIGGA do a great job ensuring that BTME goes from strength to strength each year. The education, the exhibition, and the coming together of our industry is a joy to be a part of, and Jacobsen look forward to supporting BTME each year.
“Harrogate is an ideal venue for BTME, there are plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars within the vicinity of the exhibition centre, which means that networking and after-show events are easily accommodated. BTME is more than an exhibition, it’s a feeling of community.”
