The British Golf Industry Association (BGIA) is delighted with the announcement that a new Golf trade show is launching in October 2017 – the European Golf Merchandise Show – in the UK.

BGIA Chairman, Nigel Freemantle says: “There’s no doubt that the trade show landscape both in the UK and mainland Europe is changing. An event like this, that could deliver quality buyers and networking opportunities, will be a welcome addition to the golf trade calendar.

“As it’s organised by Golf Retailing, the award-winning magazine for the golf retail sector, it promises to be an exciting event and a useful one for golf businesses and retailers.”

The European Golf Merchandise Show is scheduled to be held in The Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 3rd and 4th October 2017. For more information contact Oliver Peebles via

The BGIA is the lead trade body representing UK manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of golf products and services.
