Golf Show shapes up with packed speaker line-up


The Golf Show 2013, Europe’s leading golf trade show and educational event, has announced the line-up of expert golf industry speakers for this year’s packed educational programme.

Open to all PGA Members, the seminars, which are free to attend, take place on the Tuesday and Wednesday of the three-day event on October 8-10.

To ensure the timetable is relevant for all Golf Show delegates, PGA Professionals were surveyed to discover the topics most relevant to running their business.

With each expert speaker hosting a 75-minute seminar, the wide variety of topics covered on the 2013 agenda include junior coaching, custom fitting, the future of retail and online marketing.

Boasting successful PGA Professionals among the speakers, including world-renowned short game coach Gary Smith and tour professional coach, Scott Cranfield, the line up also includes biomechanics expert Dr Rob Neal and Trackman™ inventor Fredrik Tuxen plus many more.

David Colclough, PGA Head of Member Education, said: “A varied agenda provides each of our members an opportunity to take away new information that can positively impact their businesses.

“The golf industry has faced a challenging few years, however, among our speakers are PGA professionals that have bucked the trend. The knowledge they impart will help delegates of The Golf Show grow the game and improve their business.”
