TGA conference

12.25am 15th August 2002 - Exhibitions & Conferences

Ten companies have now confirmed their intention to exhibit alongside the Turfgrass Growers Association’s first national turf conference, taking place in Cambridgeshire on Thursday 24 October 2002.

To be staged at the ICI Conference Centre, East of England Showground, Peterborough, the one-day conference and exhibition will bring together an impressive line-up of speakers, equipment and services designed to appeal to professionals from across the turf industry.

“The TGA’s membership includes many of the leading turf growers in the UK

and Ireland, as well as companies supplying products and services to those who grow, install or care for quality cultivated turf,” explained TGA business development executive, Erica Nicholls. “The turf grown by our members reaches every part of the leisure, amenity and sports industries so the conference has been planned to appeal to as wide a professional audience as possible. Our speakers and exhibitors have certainly helped us achieve that goal.”

Among the topics to be addressed during the day by the seven speakers will be turf pests and diseases, turfgrass establishment, turf quality assessment and the breeding of new high quality amenity grasses.

Having decided to offer companies and organisations the opportunity to exhibit adjacent to the conference hall, the TGA is delighted that 10 leading suppliers to the industry have already signed up to show off their products and wares at designated times throughout the day. Confirmed exhibitors by early August are:

Advanta Seeds UK


British Seed Houses

Campey Turf Care Systems

Cebeco Seeds

The Landscaper

The Scotts Company (UK) Ltd

Spearhead Machinery

Turfmech Machinery

Và¤derstad UK 

A limited amount of stand space is still available for any company or organisation that wishes to reach a specialist professional audience, all of whom will have an interest or involvement in growing, specifying, installing or caring for quality turf used for sports, ornamental or amenity purposes.
