The Golf and Sports Turf Management Conference Returns to GIE
Kentucky Turfgrass Council Hosting Event For Second Year


For the second year in a row, golf course superintendents and sports turf professionals will have education opportunities at GIE+EXPO.

The Golf and Sports Turf Management Conference, hosted by the Kentucky Turfgrass Council, will take place Thursday and Friday, October 19-20 at the Kentucky Exposition Center during the annual tradeshow. GIE+EXPO draws more than 18,000 participants to see the latest innovations and attend first-rate education programs.

Thursday's programs will offer golf sessions in the morning and sports turf sessions in the afternoon, allowing attendees to spend half of the day in education and the other half of the day visiting the trade show. A combined general session is set for Friday morning.

"With 900 exhibits - indoors and out - that showcase the newest turf management equipment, lawn and garden products, light construction equipment and UTVs, it's a natural fit for golf course superintendents and sports turf professionals," said Warren Sellers, show director. "Having the conference sessions in conjunction with the tradeshow makes GIE+EXPO their one-stop shop for new products and education."

Pre-registration is required for the Golf and Sports Turf Management sessions. The fee for each Thursday session is $99. Friday's session is $89. In addition, participants are invited to upgrade their session registration for $50 to include a networking reception Thursday, 5:30-8 pm at The Galt House Hotel prior to GIE+EXPO's free concert at Fourth Street Live! featuring The Crashers. The $50 reception ticket includes networking, hors d'oeuvres and two drink tickets.

Registration for GIE+EXPO is $15 by September 8; $30 September 9 - October 16 and $60 thereafter. For information or to register visit
