Agenda 

The 2020 Turf Business Summit agenda has been an ongoing mission following the success of last year’s event in Portugal. It is an agenda shaped by turfcare professionals from across all fields of our industry and facilitated by Research Engine. 

Through the feedback received from our State Of The Nation survey, powered by Research Engine, coupled with our Virtual Focus Group and Twitter polls; we are in the process of refining subjects that the industry feel are the most important areas to address at this year’s Summit. The results collected will form the basis of our workshop groups, these being the core element of the event.

Updates on initiatives that are already underway can be expected, as well as sessions designed to help our delegates hone their management skills.

All of this is in addition to the opportunity of an up close look at the turfcare operation at The Belfry.

With the 2020 event fast-approaching, the Summit’s schedule will remain topical and up-to-date, building on the outcomes that came out of the Portugal Summit. With the collaboration of Research Engine and industry members’ ideas and expertisethe 2020 agenda continues these discussions and will press forward with new ones. The Summit’s attendees will still set the agenda, do the talking, be the decision-makers help to deliver solutions that can benefit the industry.
