Martin Wild, Callaway UK Sales Manager, said: “As Europe’s largest gathering of PGA professionals, The Golf Show provides an important opportunity to meet with both existing and potential customers allowing us to take them through our complete product range for the coming year, discuss next year’s business.”
David Silvers, TaylorMade-adidas Golf Managing Director EMEA, said: “The Harrogate Show is an important platform for TMaG not only to present our full range of products and write pre-order business but equally to get valuable face to face feedback from our PGA Pro partners and thank them for their support.
“It is a great forum to exchange ideas with our customers on how we can both add value to our respective businesses, that we can then take away and plan for the forthcoming season. We have some very exciting go to market plans for 2014 across Taylor Made, adidas, Ashworth and Adams brands to share with visitors this year so we are looking forward to a busy show.”
John Davis, The Golf Show Event Manager, said: “The continued support of the golf industry is pleasing at it demonstrates the value placed in the event.
“This year, many of the leading brands have taken a greater amount of stand space, which will undoubtedly give delegates an enhanced visitor experience.”
The educational aspect of the show, taking place on Tuesday, October 8, and Wednesday, October 9, includes a variety of industry experts speaking across a range of topics aimed at improving the businesses of PGA professionals.
The final day sees the return of the popular Teaching and Coaching Conference, introduced at the 2012 event with headline speakers including Pete Cowen and Scott Cranfield, who will cover the critical issues in coaching to help PGA professionals enhance their teaching businesses.
