Snowfall did not affect early attendance at the BIGGA British Turf Management Exhibition in Harrogate, Yorkshire, when it opened its doors on Tuesday morning.
There were 223 exhibitors displaying products and services at the two-in-one turf and golf club show. The event included the ClubHouse Show. Dedicated to club house management, there was a record 49 exhibitors.
BTME is a showcase for products for the coming year, and a number of companies introduced new grass seed mixtures.
All aspects of turf maintenance were covered — from machinery to irrigation.
A growing part of the show is the careers fair where such things as CV preparation, letter writing and job interviews are covered.
Recycling is now a big part of turf management. On its stand, the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) showed off recycled bunker sand and ground stabilisation grids made from recycled products.
In addition to the work side, visitors had the chance to sit in the cockpit of a Formula One racing car and drive around the Silverstone track using a simulator connected to the controls.
Visitors to the show were also offered a opportunity to enjoy acupressure, reflexology and Indian head massage.
