Taking place in Penticton, BC March 2013, our 50th anniversary conference and trade show was an incredible success. With just over 300 turf managers participating, attendance was better than expected. Supplier support was staggering with 79 companies selling out the trade show floor (26 of them new) even after additional space was created several weeks prior to the event to meet the needs of increased demand for booth space. This number was up significantly over the 62 companies participating in Victoria last year and is historically second only to a tie of 81 exhibiting in Victoria in 2009 and Penticton in 2005 (see below for full list of exhibitors).
