GOLF EUROPE 2007 has backed the European Golf Business Conference, which takes place in Amsterdam in November.
Its sponsorship of the European Golf Course Owners Association-organised event is testament to the latter’s standing within the industry, according to Lodewijk Klootwijk, a director of the EGCOA, who said, “Rather than regard our conference as competition the organisers have looked carefully at our ethos and our aims and have embraced the European Golf Business Conference.
“They have realised our two businesses complement each other rather than compete – and we would anticipate many of the exhibitors at GOLF EUROPE 2007 to attend our conference also. In fact, some have already signed up.”
This year’s GOLF EUROPE, at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre from October 7-9, is the 15th, and will feature more than 300 exhibitors around 25 countries.
News of GOLF EUROPE’s support followed on swiftly from the acquisition of another sponsor: Germany-based Albatros, a company specialising in software for golf resorts.
It is one of the market leaders in continental Europe, with more than 400 resorts using the company’s technology to run everything from bars to club shops.
Klootwijk added, “We are naturally grateful to these two companies for their support and continue to be heartened by the backing we are receiving generally from the golf industry. The calibre of speakers and sponsors reinforce the stature of the conference which we believe will become an established fixture in the industry calendar.”
Delegate places at the European Golf Business Conference are still available.
