The British and International Golf Greenkeepers' Association and the Amenity Forum will join the Sport and Play Construction Association, the Arb Association, the Sports Turf Research Institute, the Institute for Occupational Safety & Health and the Parks Alliance in supporting the exhibition's education programme, Learning Live.
Other bodies supporting the show include: The Agricultural Engineers Association, the Association of Play Industries, the Crop Protection Association and the British Agricultural & Garden Machinery Association.
Jim Croxton, BIGGA's CEO, revealed why the organisation is engaging again this year: "We know that a lot of greenkeepers like to attend SALTEX because there is some cross over in exhibitors that are at both SALTEX and BTME. There is also a cross over for people who know groundsmen and are interested in going to catch up with friends and network.
"Putting education on at SALTEX is the logical next step. Not everyone can get to Harrogate and we feel it's a benefit to our members to have education on wherever we can present it," he said.
BIGGA's head of member development Sami Strutt believes that the relationship between BIGGA and the Institute of Groundsmanship is great for the industry.
"I think the IOG and BIGGA working together and presenting a united front for the turf industry as a whole, is very important. BIGGA is quite specific to greenkeeping but there is a much wider sporting industry out there that is reliant on turf being in the right condition and producing the right playing
surfaces for the people using them. The two associations working together backs this up and goes a long way to ensuring it happens."
