‘Rule of Three’ - WCTA Returns to the River Rock Casino Resort Feb 11-13, 2020

Catering to the professional golf and sportsturf management industry, the Western Canada Turfgrass Association Board of Directors is pleased to announce our 57th Annual Conference and Trade Show will take place for the third straight year at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, British Columbia, February 11-13, 2020.

The rule of three suggests every set of three is complete.  We couldn’t agree more and are excited to let it ride for one more year to complete the River Rock conference trifecta!

For 2020, you can bet on a wide-ranging turf management supplier and service provider trade show, hit the jackpot with specialized pre-conference seminars and go all in with a first-class education program covering all sectors of turf management!  Get in on the action with social and networking events like the ever-popular annual President’s Reception and all new ‘Great Canadian Pub Night’.

“If you made it to the last couple conferences, you know the River Rock is a fantastic venue for our conference and trade show,” stated WCTA President Travis Olson.  “If you haven’t, it’s definitely an event you won’t want to miss.” 

Event planning is just getting started and further information will be released when available.  WCTA Executive Director Jerry Rousseau confessed, “It will be tough to top the last two years at the River Rock but we still have a couple aces up our sleeve!”
