September saw golf experts from around the world gather in Hampshire for a conference with the sport’s leading name in premier all-weather surfaces, Huxley Golf.
The event, held at the Marriott Meon Valley Hotel and Country Club, saw Huxley Golf distributors come together to share ideas, demonstrate installation techniques and discuss potential new products. The meet-up also provided the chance for many of the Company’s new international partners to get to know one another, with representatives from countries as diverse as the SlovakRepublic, Scotland and Spain all in attendance.
With many of the delegates facing vastly different climate and market conditions, there was plenty to talk about. As Managing Director Paul Huxley explained: “It was a privilege to welcome our old and new partners to Hampshire again for a truly interesting meeting, not least because of the myriad challenges that golfing establishments are facing around the world. Some markets, like Georgia, are in their infancy, whereas our partners in Spain and Portugal have a well-established golfing industry. And it’s equally varied from an environmental point of view, where our experts help golfing centres and professionals around the world cope with both freezing and desert temperatures alike.”
The bi-annual conference aims to discuss new business opportunities and, in doing so, to ensure the sport continues to grow on a global scale. Paul Huxley continued: “Not only is coming together like this is absolutely essential for gaining insight and understanding into international golfing markets, it’s also key to the continuing success and growth of the game around the globe. The opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas face to face is so valuable.”
Speaking after the event new distributor, Jiri Votroubek of Huxley Golf Bohemia which covers the Czech and SlovakianRepublics said: “This was my first Huxley Golf conference and I have to say it’s been excellent. It was good to be able to talk about some of the challenges I face, share the successes and hear about different golfing markets around the world. I’ve picked up a lot of interesting insights and some indispensable advice to help build my business and the profile of the sport in my region. I’d like to say thank you and well done to the team at Huxley Golf in the UK for organising such a beneficial event.”
