Bernhard and Company embarks on trade show exhibition tour

Bernhard and Company started a run of global turf trade shows throughout the fall and winter in the UK, USA, Asia and Australia.

Bernhard and Company will be showcasing its full range of turf care solutions including reel grinders, bedknife grinders and smaller machinery, in addition to its distribution products (in applicable regions), SubAir, Soil Scout and TurfBreeze. Visitors will also be able to view product and service videos and learn more about Bernhard and Company’s revered aftersales service. Bernhard will be in a bespoke booth at each show to enhance the experience of its visitors to ensure they get the most out of their visit.

“We have been able to gain a great deal of insight and expertise from the industry by exhibiting and being present at trade shows around the world,” said Steven Nixon, managing director for Bernhard and Company. “Each of these shows is a great opportunity for us to get in front of customers, prospective customers, and industry friends – it’s really valuable time for us.”

Bernhard and Company began its trade show swing at the Japan Turf show at the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Centre. Bernhard and Company exhibited on the Kyoeisha booth, with Express Dual, Anglemaster, and Dual Master machines on display. Both Kyoeisha and Bernhard and Company ran seminars on each day of the event.

As members and partners of BIGGA, the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association, the Bernhard and Company team will be back in the UK for BTME, BIGGA’s turf exhibition hosted at the Harrogate Convention Centre between January 23-25, 2024. BTME features an unmissable mix of exhibition, education, conferences, and brilliant networking opportunities, and Bernhard will be located in Hall 5, stand number 534. As the distribution partner for the UK and Ireland, Bernhard and Company will also be exhibiting the latest Soil Scout technology at BTME.

Additionally, representatives of the Bernhard Academy will be positioned on stand 534 at BTME. The Bernhard Academy is the turf industry’s foremost education provider and has recently unveiled its all-new program of educational courses that are now available for booking at its three Academy sites around the UK, via the new Bernhard Academy website. The Bernhard Academy team will be on hand to answer questions about the workshops and educational opportunities.

Prior to the start of BTME, the Bernhard Academy team will be delivering a three-day course as part of BTME’s Continue to Learn program. The ‘Grinding Perfection and Cutting Unit Setup’ workshops were among the first courses to sell-out immediately after launch.

The GCSAA Conference and Trade Show in the USA will take place in Arizona at the Phoenix Convention Centre from Jan. 29-Feb. 1, 2024. It is the premier networking and learning environment for golf course and facility management professionals from North America and around the world. Bernhard and Company will be located at booth 5109.

Each year, Bernhard and Company selects 10 BIGGA members (announced at BTME) to accompany them to the GCSAA conference in the USA, to experience the show, take part in numerous educational experiences, and visit local golf facilities. 

Slightly later in the year, Bernhard and Company will visit the Australian ASTMA (Australian Sports Turf Managers Association) show between June 17-20 in Brisbane. The Bernhard and Company booth will be located at stand number 47, and in addition to its market-leading products, Bernhard will also be exhibiting SubAir and TurfBreeze products, as the distribution partner in the region.
