AGCSA Conference 2017 Twin Waters

 

I apologise this went out a bit late as we had a few IT issues last week.

The 2017 conference is on right now as I post this and I hope everyone is enjoying themselves. Congratulations to Brett Woodward for winning the AGCSA golf championships @ Pelican Waters well deserved.

The conference is back at Novotel Twin Waters on the sunshine coast in Queensland- sorry Jason Haines it would be great to be on your sunny coast.

They are some great talks this week. I really like the one with keynote speaker Dr Mike Richardson, David Warwick and John Neylan on effects of shade. There is some really good ground breaking stuff here with the work Avondale Golf Club is doing. As well some good workshops on herbicide resistance and poa management which are very topical at the moment.

For the trade we will be there and we will be close to two of our major agents Fernland Agencies and Greenway Turf Solutions.

This year will be showcasing our new fungicide Emerald. A brand new contact Fungicide for the control of dollar spot, helmo, anthracnose and gray leaf spot. At this time registered is pending and subject to APVMA approval. However that should not be too far away.

 

As well we will be there to answer any questions you have. Please come by and see us.

For all your social media needs keep up to date with #33ATC.

1st Ever Australian Turf TWEETUP @ ACGSA Conference #32ATC

I’ve been thinking about this for a bit of time especially after the success of the US one which i have posted beforeĀ (If you don’t know what I’m speaking about have a look at this post here from the Vegas GIS the 2nd ever Tweetup ) It was a great way to meet people that i would not normally of met if it wasn’t for twitter and made some long term friendship because of it. As I posted last night thank to @itweetturf @GCI_Magaine @TurfRepublic for the inspiration

After a discussion with Dean Hardman from the Australian Golf Course on the conference he said he would like to meet all the people who are on twitter and facebook in person. So I said we can look at organising it. With help from Peter Frewin and the AGCSA staff we decided to hold a short meet and greet (TWEETUP) during the opening to the trade show on the Tuesday.. All details are below. So please come along there will be drinks around the place and a great way to meet those on social media face to face.

Feel free to hit me up before or during the conference for any questions on twitter or

zreikat@campbellchemicals.com.au

The Australian Turfgrass Conference is only 3 weeks away . Hard to believe isn’t it. A few things I want to point out which I hope you can attend or use for the conference.

There are plenty of talks on during the week and some great speakers but one not to be missed is myself (Yes totting my own horn here)

Tuesday 21st June 3.20pm-4pm I am proud to be doing a session on
“Building Your Profile Using Social Media”

What i aim to do is

  • Give you the tools available within social media to raise your profile

  • How to use those tools and

  • Create your own personal brand and make this an asset.

As well as making it fun along the way I hope to give everyone something to take home..

APP TIME
