The British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association has kicked its preparations for Europe’s leading turf management exhibition into top gear with the launch of a brand new smartphone application.
The exclusive BTME 2017 event app has been created by leading designers Avodigy and is available on both Android and Apple devices.
The smartphone app for BTME 2016 was a huge success and this year’s app is even bigger and better, with the introduction of new features such as a map of exhibition halls and tailored alerts, ensuring delegates don’t miss out on any of the major events or sessions that are taking place across the entire event.
The app will also allow delegates to plan their own schedule and keep BTME attendees up to date with information about Continue to Learn sessions, accommodation and where to eat.
This year’s BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition is set to be the largest ever, with BTME spanning four huge halls at the Harrogate International Centre. Also held throughout the week will be the Continue to Learn education programme, featuring 250 hours of education for BIGGA members, as well as GolfBIC and the Turf Managers’ Conference.
BIGGA CEO Jim Croxton said: “BTME is a diverse event, featuring a comprehensive exhibition and filling four halls at the Harrogate International Centre, along with an educational conference, various special events and networking opportunities. So it is important to bring all the information together into one easy-to-understand location.
“Everyone has a smartphone in their pocket these days and so the BTME app is the perfect guide to the premier turf care event in the European greenkeeping calendar.
“With details of events, a calendar and information about exhibitors and sponsors, you can download the app now and start planning your visit to Harrogate months in advance.”
To download the BTME 2017 application, head to the app store on your Android or Apple device and search for BTME 2017.
Once downloaded, the app requires no internet connection for use. It is also a useful tool for those who are unable to attend BTME in person, but who want to keep up-to-date with what’s going on at the event.
