Brand Events, the owners and organisers of the ground-breaking Golf LIVE and their partners IMG, have re-appointed Golf Marketing Services (GMS) to handle the trade launch of the 2011 event.

The inaugural Golf LIVE was a resounding success and featured a mix of top players, coaches and celebrities interacting with over 10,000 spectators over three days. Ryder Cup captain, Colin Montgomerie, was the Golf LIVE Ambassador and he was ably supported by Ian Poulter, Paul Casey, Retief Goosen, Catriona Matthew and rising star Rhys Davies. David Leadbetter and Denis Pugh were amongst a number of top coaches who provided clinics and tuition sessions for the crowds to enjoy.

In 2011 the event will be moving to a new venue at the stunning London Golf Club in Kent and will take place from May 20-22.

Speaking on behalf of GMS, Company Director Neil Gray said: “We are thrilled and honoured to be re-appointed to work with the team at Golf LIVE. We all felt that the first event was a phenomenal success that delivered a great product for both exhibitors and the public alike and we very much look forward to communicating the exciting plans for 2011 to the industry.”

James Goode, Golf LIVE Event Director, commented on the appointment: “GMS made sure we were one of the key talking points in the industry when we launched last year and this undoubtedly helped our sales team when we went into the market. We will be looking to achieve a similar level of interest this year as we look to introduce our new ideas and talent for Golf LIVE.”
