Firmly established as Europe's foremost turf care show, The BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition showcases Europe's international companies specialising in grounds care maintenance and sports turf management.

We Have worked with event organiser the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) since 1991. The event is held each January at the Harrogate International Centre.

Attended by more than 150 of the world’s top manufacturers and service providers, complemented by a raft of educational workshops and seminars to advance personal development, a visit to BTME is vital for those whose responsibilities include grounds care maintenance and sports turf management.

As in previous years, we supplied a full range of services, including shell schemes, electrics, carpeting, furniture and signage.  In addition to building the event’s Media Centre, in 2013 we also designed and built the
Press Conference Suite, incorporating audio visual facilities.

Jim Croxton, CEO at BIGGA, said: “Despite the tough market, BTME attracted more than 8,000 delegates over the three days – more than 40% up on visitor numbers the previous year. The show has grown in recent years and now fills four halls, as well as the Queen’s Suite where we run our ‘Continue to Learn’ programme of educational events.

“Over the years we have completely revamped our presence at the exhibition and substantially expanded our branded areas. Joe
Manby Ltd is extremely important in our planning process and always go the extra mile to ensure our exhibition has the required impact. 

“We know we can always call Richard Manby, our event contact, with any questions, and he will advise on whether what we want to do is achievable or whether there is a better way to do it.

“Nothing is too much bother and we feel that we are all part of one team working to produce each exhibition. The Joe Manby Limited team work in a calm, efficient manner which is contagious and keeps even the most stressed exhibitor calm!”
