KPMG has announced Park Hyatt Dubai as the venue of the Golf Business Forum, April 17-19, 2011.
The Golf Business Forum, which brings together leading players from the golf, real estate, finance and tourism sectors, has become the most important golf industry event in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region to meet and do business and is now in its eighth year.
The two-and-a-half day conference is filled with engaging, dynamic and interactive discussions, one-on-one interviews, fast-paced debates and presentations from key industry leaders on a variety of topics, from investment and financing to operations and marketing.
Some of golf’s biggest names, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Greg Norman and Annika Sorenstam have all personally attended the Golf Business Forum, joining more than 250 participants from over 40 countries.
