Golfexpo 2000 is “the place to do serious business this year” according to Cliff Dews, Chairman of the European Golf Industry Association. “With the additional purchase of ‘ClubHouse’ and the inclusion of a retail area, Golfexpo 2000 will be the industry’s most comprehensive exhibition yet. Pre-registration for the trade days is at an all-time high and tickets for the public days are selling well.”
“The NEC has done a first class job in consolidating the needs of the industry and we believe that Golfexpo will be the best trade show that the European golf industry has seen in years,” concluded Dews.
Amongst items of recently released news, Golfserve Ltd has confirmed the launch of its new Internet Service – PGANetwork.net – and will be sponsoring the Internet Cafà© where visitors can check emails and register for the new service; the “Chip & Run Theatre” will incorporate a real-turf green and a chipping area while the range of events to be held in the Arena includes fashion shows, club demonstrations and the David Edwards Trick Golf Show. The Memorabilia auction is an opportunity to view and, possibly, to bid for historical golf equipment – perhaps including a few celebrity heirlooms.
Vistors to Golfexpo will be able to relax in The Ashworth Michelob 19th Hole and watch live coverage of The Volvo Masters from Montecastillo, Spain.
Golfexpo will be held at the NEC Birmingham. It will be open to the trade on 2nd and 3rd November and to the public on the 4th and 5th November 2000. On public days tickets cost £8 (adults) and £5 (children & OAPs) with car parking at £5.
