Golf Business Innovation Show: New Event for Club Owners/Managers/Secretaries

6.04pm 16th August 2017 - Exhibitions & Conferences

The Golf Business Innovation Show is the first B2B conference & exhibition dedicated to diversification and innovation, to make golf clubs more sustainable through non-golf related initiatives.

1st February 2018, The Celtic Manor Resort, Newport

Delegates will enjoy two conference rooms, focusing on the use of outdoor and indoor space.

There will be leading clubs sharing their experiences and lessons learned when diversifying.

There will be many opportunities for Q&As and multiple networking breaks, as well as a networking app to engage with peers, before during and after the event. There will be keynote presentations from leading clubs, and prominent suppliers, with the opportunity to learn and discover the many different opportunities and options available to golf clubs of all sizes.

The target audience is any golf owner or operator who is interested in, or looking for inspiration and ideas on how they can develop new income streams to add to their golf related income.

If they want to hear from clubs who have already diversified, or who are in the process of diversifying and listen to the lessons learnt, success, advice, the economic risks and rewards, and engage on a peer to peer level to discuss enabling development and avoiding risks and pitfalls, The Celtic manor Resort is the place to be on 1st February 2018.

There will also be extensive networking opportunities with both peers and suppliers in the exhibition with up to 50 suppliers exhibiting, who are all specifically interested in diversifying their income, and increasing non-golf related income.

Graeme Kirk – Event Director – Golf Business Innovation Show, says, “Having work in publishing and B2B events for 16 years, and been a keen golfer for 25. I have seen too many golf clubs closing during the decline of participation in golf. At the same time, I have seen many clubs have huge success, take the initiative and utilise their land and clubhouse space to develop completely new income streams. Whether that is accommodation, bespoke restaurants, weddings and functions, alternative outdoor activities, spas, gyms, the list goes on.

“Golf Business Innovation Show will bring together those with a common interest in diversifying, share ideas and experiences amongst peers on how to be a more attractive venue to a greater number of people, whilst also complimenting their core business, golf!”
