Gleneagles conference sold out

10.15am 29th October 2001 - Exhibitions & Conferences

Textron Golf, Turf & Specialty Products, principal sponsors of the inaugural Turf Care Conference to be held at the Gleneagles Hotel from 18th to 20th November 2001, has reported that the event is now fully booked and looks set to be a resounding success.

Over 120 delegates will be attending the conference, which is the brainchild of Jimmy Kidd, golf courses and estates director at the world-renowned resort complex. The format has been designed to appeal to both entrepreneurs who wish to build a golf course as well as those already involved in the industry.

“This three-day conference is the ideal forum for representatives from all areas of the course construction and maintenance sectors to meet and expend their knowledge and understanding of each other’s role,” commented Jimmy Kidd. “We are absolutely delighted that demand for places has outstripped supply and this bodes well for the future of the event.”

Peter Bell, Textron’s marketing director added, “As principal sponsor we are equally thrilled with the response from delegates. Through the hard work of Jimmy and his staff, this inaugural conference looks set to become an annual event with delegates and speakers attending from all parts of the globe. This international perspective will ensure that all participants can exchange views and discuss issues that affect this burgeoning industry.”
