Colin Montgomerie will head a field of golf industry giants when GolfEx Dubai 2007 opens for business at the Madinat Conference Centre on 28-29 January.
Montgomerie, eight times European Order of Merit winner, will make his debut at GolfEx Dubai 2007 when he addresses the global golf summit.
Although the former Dubai Desert Classic champion has yet to confirm his topic of choice, Montgomerie’s opinions of the game have always been colourful and a full house is expected when he takes to the stage on day two of the conference.
Having Montgomerie – who ended the 2006 campaign in ninth place on the money list after the Volvo Masters – agree to deliver a speech at GolfEx Dubai is a major boost for an event that is back on the regional sporting calendar for event organisers and promoters, the Dubai-based company Driving Force, after a hugely-successful debut in 2006.
“Last year, we managed to attract a field of the best speakers in the industry,” said Driving Force managing director, Neil Hamp-Adams. “In 2007, I believe we will have an even stronger panel and the news that Colin Montgomerie has already confirmed his presence is a great boost for GolfEx Dubai.
“Colin has been at the forefront of the PGA European Tour for more than 15 years and is recognised as one of Europe’s finest ever golfers. I’m sure delegates will be keen to hear what he has to say about the future of the industry.”
Although primarily a conference, GolfEx Dubai 2007 will also host a trade exhibition and gala dinner to enable the golfing world to share knowledge, broker business deals, network with the leading figures and experts in the industry in order to drive the game into the future.
