60th Anniversary WCTA Conference & Trade Show
February 14-16, 2024
Victoria Conference Centre, Victoria, BC, Canada

Message from the Organizing Committee,

Welcome turf management conference and trade show goers, to Victoria's Inner Harbour, site of the Victoria Conference Centre and Fairmont Empress Hotel where two icons come together as a one-of-kind, impressive venue with a long history of hosting successful WCTA conferences. 

The Inner Harbour is truly a classical part of Victorias landscape, a hub of activity for tourism, commerce, and recreation and alive with activity including cruise ships, sea planes, ferries, water taxis, commercial tugboats and barges, fishing vessels, wildlife tour boats, and all sorts of non-motorized recreational crafts.

To our turf management delegates, you have at your disposal all the major equipment, fertilizer, irrigation, accessory, amenity and every other important turf management products and services imaginable, live, in person and in real time.  Its a once-per-year opportunity to look, touch, feel, listen and find immediate answers to your burning questions, check out the new kit and catch up with friends and colleagues.  

To our suppliers, service providers and sponsors, thank you for supporting all professional turf management sectors, the trade show and of course the WCTA.  We work hard to provide the best possible opportunity for you to interact with hundreds of golf and sportsturf management personnel, all under one roof, and appreciate your participation.

To all those with a hand in helping organize and produce our largest annual undertaking, including WCTA Directors, staff and production team, host venue and presenters, thank-you for making tremendous efforts in putting all the pieces in their right places.

So please enjoy and take full advantage of this amazing opportunity - by attending, youre showing an important commitment to your career and our association.  I look forward to seeing you in downtown Victoria this February!
