The event is the region's premier forum for turf managers in the golf course, sports field, lawn care and sod industry. Through this partnership, Sports Turf Canada will be able to offer enhanced programming with more specialized education and professional development for sports turf managers.

"It makes sense for our association to join together as we continue to grow in knowledge and support one another as turf professionals," said AGSA/ATRF president Kevin Wentzell.

Tennessee Propedo, STC president, added, "We are delighted to be partnering with the AGSA for this event. It is, for us, a natural progression from our courses and field days, bringing additional educational and training opportunities for all associated with the sports industry in Atlantic Canada."

The accompanying trade show always enjoys considerable industry support. For more information regarding sponsor, exhibitor and program details, visit http://www.agsa.ca/2016-agsa-conference-information-package/ .
