‘Golf Management Europe’ supports EGCOA conference

7.40am 2nd October 2007 - Exhibitions & Conferences

One of Europe’s leading golf trade magazines is the latest industry sponsor for the European Golf Business Conference, which takes place in Amsterdam from 28-30 November.

Golf Management Europe has just celebrated its 10th anniversary and has established itself as the leading pan-European magazine for the golf industry in that time. Its decision to become a media partner to the European Golf Course Owners Association-organised event is further testament to the conference’s status and appeal, according to Lodewijk Klootwijk, a director of the EGCOA.

He said: “It is pertinent that a magazine which in the past has criticised some trade events for not fulfilling their brief should choose to publicly support our conference. That speaks volumes for the credibility of the European Golf Business Conference and the European Golf Course Owners Association.

“We believe the calibre of speakers and sponsors we have assembled will ensure the conference becomes an established fixture in the industry calendar.”

Golf Management Europe’s publisher Michael Lenihan, the managing director of Portman Publishing, said: “We are delighted to be able to support the European Golf Business Conference which sits comfortably with the ethos of Golf Management Europe. Our magazine is already widely read among members of the European Golf Course Owners Association and we feel this is an ideal opportunity to cement those relationships.”

The European Golf Business Conference has also confirmed two further industry sponsors: CaddieVision, developed by Falcomedia Systems AG, Switzerland, and Antwerp-based architect Mind:Style.

CaddieVision® is an interactive golf course guide, affording a high-quality, state-of-the-art presentation of golf courses, both in terms of design as well as technology.
Mind:Style Design develops classic or cutting-edge golfscapes, from concept to completion.

Delegate places at the event are still available.
