BTME is the biggest event in the greenkeeping calendar and we kick things off with an exciting event that brings together members of BIGGA from all over the world. 

The BIGGA Welcome Celebration celebrates the achievements of BIGGA members over the past 12 months and everyone who attends BTME is invited to come along and get involved. 

Enjoy a complimentary drink when you arrive, speak to BIGGA members old and new and take a seat as we announce the winners of the BIGGA Awards and the Excellence in Communication Awards. 

Also celebrated will be the successes of BIGGA members as we present life memberships, introduce the BIGGA President and Vice President and acknowledge those who have done incredible things throughout the year.

The event is informal, so there’s no dress code, and is free to attend, meaning there’s no better way to get your BTME experience started.
