PGA professionals registering for The Golf Show, which aims to become Europe’s leading golf trade show and educational event, are being given the opportunity to influence the show’s seminar programme.
Delegates registering for the event, to be held at Harrogate International Centre from October 26-28, through the website – www.golftradeshow.co.uk – are asked to rank their preferred speakers to ensure the show’s educational events are as relevant as possible to the needs of PGA members.
A wide range of speakers and seminars are available for selection, covering all aspects of the golf industry, including experts from the field of coaching, business and marketing.
Once registered on the website delegates will be sent an email with a link to the survey that will invite them to rank their top three presenters in order of preference. The survey will determine which speakers will participate and is part of the show’s remit to respond to the needs of delegates.
“The survey will help us to provide an education programme which meets the specific needs of members attending the event rather than putting on a fixed programme,” said David Colclough, PGA head of member education.
PGA members attending The Golf Show will also be eligible for points towards their Continuous Professional Development programme record.
Attending the first day will earn members 50 points, with 25 points available for attending the second and final day of the show. In addition, members attending any one of the educational seminars over the three days will be accredited with 20 points per seminar.
John Davis, The Golf Show co-ordinator, added: “We want to ensure that PGA professionals can gain everything they need from The Golf Show, and by giving them the chance to have a say on the seminar programme we believe we’re doing just that.
“PGA professionals have a wide and varied selection of high profile speakers, including people like Dr Paul Hurrion, Bill Sanderson and Andrew Wood. As well as helping to decide the speakers and seminar subjects PGA professionals can amass a large quantity of points vital for their continued professional development.”
