BIGGA members are being invited to help shape the education programme that will be delivered at Europe’s largest convention dedicated to the turf management industry, BTME 2017.

For the third year running, BIGGA is opening up Continue to Learn to members, allowing them to choose what range of topics will be covered throughout the four-day event.

Sami Strutt, BIGGA’s head of member development, said: “The opinion of BIGGA members is very important and will help us to build a stronger education programme, ensuring we deliver educational content that is tailored to the needs of our members.

“The survey will take approximately 30 minutes, so grab a cup of coffee and help us to help you invest in your future.”

Member’s Choice was used to develop Continue to Learn at BTME 2016. As a result, it was hailed as BIGGA’s most successful education programme ever delivered, with over 3,000 delegates attending.

The BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition is Europe’s leading showcase for turf professionals and buyers. BTME 2017 will feature over 200 hours of education, the Turf Managers’ Conference and over 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest products and innovations.

The latest Member’s Choice survey is now available to BIGGA members and it takes around 30 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until 4.30pm on Friday 29 April 2016.

The Member’s Choice survey can be found at
