Visitors to the NEC Golf Show will be among the first to see a new brand aiming to revolutionise men’s golf clothing The event runs from 27-29 November and will be the official public launch of luxury British golf fashion brand UKKO which offers golfers a contemporary style with ‘green to bar appeal’.

The label is currently only available from a small number of selected retail outlets and this is the first time it is going out to the golfing public en masse. To mark the occasion UKKO has signed up as official clothing partner of the Show, meaning staff will be modelling lines from its current autumn/winter 2009 collection.

UKKO director Nick Hovey said: “Being named official clothing partner of the NEC Golf Show is a real achievement for us with our inaugural collection and speaks for the quality of clothes we produce.

“The show will be a fantastic opportunity for us to get our brand in front of thousands of golfers and we’re really looking forward to meeting everyone on our stand and showing them what we have to offer.”

Colin Brunton, CEO of the Golf Show Group, said: “It’s great for us to have UKKO on board, they offer a premium product with some great lines. I’m sure they’ll be a real hit at the show and hopefully will become the latest in a long line of successful companies that launched at our shows.”

The NEC Golf Show takes place at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre and will showcase everything golf from big-brand equipment to the latest gadgets and the best places to play.
