Greenkeepers Association launches show for club owners and managers

2.30pm 7th September 2001 - Exhibitions & Conferences

The British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) has announced that The Golf Club Show will offer golf club owners, managers and secretaries all they could possibly need to ensure that their clubhouses are as well equipped inside as their golf courses are outside.

The Golf Club Show will run in the Harrogate International Centre from January 22-24, 2002, alongside, and complemented by, the existing and tremendously successful BTME (BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition) which has been established there since 1989. The unique “double header” will offer visitors the opportunity of taking in both Shows during a must-visit week for everyone connected with the running of golf clubs and courses.

A dedicated educational seminar programme will be run in conjunction with the show. This will feature a key note speech by 400 metre runner, Roger Black, and include a much anticipated session with Dr James Beard, the world-renowned agronomist.

“Many golf club secretaries, chairmen of green and other senior club personnel already attend BTME with their greenkeeping staff. For some time we have been considering the possibility of offering a complete golf club experience for these, and the many more visitors who will be attracted to Harrogate by the advent of the new show. Now is the time to make it happen,” said Neil Thomas, BIGGA executive director.

“While BTME will continue as an exhibition with the whole range of products and services for the golf course, The Golf Club Show, which will have its own hall within the Exhibition Centre, will offer all the additional equipment, furnishing and service needs for a golf club,” explained Neil.
