Turf Producers Hoist International Flag at England Conference
For the first time in its 35-year history, Turfgrass Producers International will hoist the banner for its Midwinter Conference outside of North America. Birmingham, England Hyatt Regency Hotel and the adjoining International Convention Center will host the Feb. 26-28, 2003, program that includes speakers from seven countries, exhibits, tours and social events. Advance and on-site registration is available to TPI members and non-members.
TPI President Stan Gardner noted, “With nearly 20 percent of our members in 40 countries outside of North America, we feel it’s important to make the conferences more accessible to everyone. We’ll assess the success of this event and then make the next one even better.” The 2004 TPI conference will be held in Santa Barbara, Calif., while the 2005 event will again have an international flair when the meeting moves to Cancun.
