Golf Business News - BIGGA unveils stand award winners as BTME 2024 wraps up


BIGGA has announced the winners of the stand awards from this year’s BTME which wrapped up its 2024 Show in Harrogate on Thursday after three hectic days of exhibition action, interspersed with presentations, meetings and seminars.

This year’s show attracted 145 exhibitors and 4,174 unique visitors, with each delegate staying for approximately 1.6 days. This represents a slight uptick on 2023, with 1,135 education places sold at the Continue to Learn programme.

Each year, the BIGGA stand awards are given to stands at BTME who have impressed visitors and association members. Votes are gathered via the BIGGA app and there are three categories to vote in: small, medium and large.

Reflecting on the week, Karl Hansell, head of marketing and communications at BIGGA, said: “As the removals van returns to BIGGA headquarters in Easingwold and our team settles back into the daily routine, we reflect on a wonderful, exhausting week in Harrogate. With our Continue to Learn programme beginning on Sunday morning and the show not closing until 2.30pm on Thursday, BTME week is long and tiring and we’re forever grateful that our enthusiastic team is willing to spend so long away from home to ensure that our visitors and exhibitors have the best experience possible.

“The opportunity to meet so many of our members and watch as they engage in learning or in conversations with our valued exhibitors gives us energy and provides us with inspiration and awareness as we turn our attentions to the rest of BIGGA’s activities throughout the year. Thank you to everyone who joined us in Harrogate this year and we look forward to seeing you at another event soon.”
