Release…June 26, 2017

Catering to the professional golf and sportsturf management industry, the WCTA Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 55th Annual WCTA Conference and Trade Show will take place at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, British Columbia, February 14-16, 2018.

Plans for the conference include an exhibitor trade show, pre-conference seminars and multiple education tracks spanning all sectors of turf management.  The organizing committee is also working on several social networking events including the Dave Creamer Memorial Hockey Game (pending icetime availability) and a golf tournament to support turf research project funding.

President Peter Sorokovsky enthusiastically stated, “Get ready for a new venue!  The Board had a couple options in Richmond and while the other choice was suitable, I’m very happy with the River Rock decision.”  He added, “This is a brilliant venue like no other, is close to the airport and has everything we need for an amazing event next February.”

Preparations have begun and more information will be revealed when available.  Room rates start at $159/night; we recommend reserving as soon as booking information is released.
