BGIA export support 2012 to include China Golf Show

8.30am 8th November 2011 - Exhibitions & Conferences

After a very successful PGA Merchandise Show 2011, where the British Golf Industry Association’s Business Lounge was a popular addition to theUKarea and well used amongst members, the BGIA will once again be returning to the world leading show inJanuary 2012.

The not-for-profit trade Association, representing the UK golf products and services industry, will be taking two large island stands within the same central location between the golf equipment and product & services halls at the show.

Companies exhibiting within the dedicated UK pavilion in 2011 reported successful shows with high visitor footfall, so with considerable interest fromUKexhibitors to join theUKarea for 2012, it is hoped the BGIA has a much bigger presence inJanuary.

In addition for 2012, the BGIA will be attending the China Golf Show, Beijing(16-18 March) for the first time.  The BGIA is already working closely with Reed Exhibitions (new show owners), on maximizing numerous opportunities for UK companies to benefit from exhibiting within this market – a target market for UK Trade & Investment.

With a strong group of exhibitors already booked to join the BGIA fronted UK pavilion in Beijing, any companies interested in exhibiting should contact the BGIA Association Manager; Milly Durrant at / 02476 414 999 x207.

Export support is a key area the BGIA regularly assists members with, as the Association operates as an Accredited Trade Organiser (ATO) working closely with UK Trade & Investment to assist UK SME’s in gaining £1800 TAP export grants to exhibit at these trade shows.
