Partnership categories for the HSBC Golf Business Forum, the world’s premier golf business event for industry leaders and decision makers, are filling fast ahead of the Forum’s first US staging at the Marriott Sawgrass Resort, 28 November – 1 December 2016.

A special new Allied Partnerships category has been established in 2016 to capitalise on the first Forum in America, showcasing and highlighting the golf construction industry with the ASGCA, CMAA, GCBAA, GCSAA and the NGCOA members all receiving incentives to attend.

As a result of these partnerships, members will have the opportunity to register and attend the HSBC Golf Business Forum at specially arranged rates.
