For 2012, the IOG will look to stage IOG Scotsturf In Action - at a new venue, to be announced.
An outdoor show is under consideration for 2013, pending consultation with exhibitors and visitors past and present.
Investigations are already underway to link an event in 2014 to coincide with the Commonwealth Games being held in Glasgow.
The decisions have been made following a strategic review of Scotsturf operations by the IOG Board.
IOG chief executive Geoff Webb said:
"After presenting IOG Scotsturf in a similar format for 40 years, the IOG believes the show now deserves a fresh, dynamic approach going forwards.
"Exploring the feasibility of a ‘new look’ event that will further enhance the prospects for our exhibitors and our visitors, as well as our membership in Scotland, is the overriding objective.
"We’ve enjoyed 40 successful years of IOG Scotsturf and it is now time for a serious re-think and re-evaluation, and to investigate all opportunities that will further reinforce the successful Scotsturf brand with all interested parties."
