On Wednesday it was our turn to host, with the 2022 BIGGA Delegation Reception getting underway in the Harrogate Convention Centre Auditorium. The reception evening is designed to allow all past delegates the opportunity to attend, network, and re-live memories from their own delegation experience. Guests are also invited from BIGGA and the GCSAA, in addition to numerous industry friends and professionals.
This year marked a special occasion for the Bernhard and Company BIGGA delegation, with the 200th delegate taking part in the educational experience to the USA in February. With the change in date of BTME from its usual slot, this year our delegates had already taken part in the experience by the time BTME came around. This allowed us to arrange a live Q&A with the 200 Club delegates, which was very well received by the audience.
Speaking on the success of the show, Bernhard and Company Managing Director, Steven Nixon, said: “Attending BTME is just another great tool for us to keep our products, name, and brand in front of people. It really helps us build on the work we are doing all year round, so it is very important for us.”
