Platforms for London golf

10.00am 21st April 2006 - Exhibitions & Conferences

Londoners have the opportunity to display their golfing prowess at various city venues over the next few days.
A mobile golf simulator is on the concourse at Victoria Station today. It moves to Paddington Station on Monday and switches to Canary Wharf’s Jubilee Place Mall on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The free roadshow is promoted by the organisers of the London Golf Show, which is at ExCel from next Thursday, April 27 until Sunday, April 30 and members of the public who are within five feet of the pin with one of their four shots will win pairs of tickets to next week’s show – the largest consumer golf show in Europe.
Andy Barwell, the London Golf Show’s marketing director, said, “We have the opportunity to use a state-of-the-art Full Swing Golf simulator, supplied by Mobile Reality Events Ltd and decided to take it to the people in advance of the show.
“It gives members of the public the opportunity to play golf in an unusual environment and in a fun way – plus there’s the chance to win tickets to the show. We believe it will prove really popular at all three venues.”
With the London Golf Show just days away organisers are hopeful of exceeding the 35,000 visitors who visited ExCel last year for the inaugural show.
Barwell added, “Advance ticket sales are up on a year-on-year basis and everybody involved, from the show organisers to the exhibitors is hugely excited.
“London will be the focus of the world’s sporting attention in 2012 and has a great track record in hosting major sporting events and sporting innovation. We are proud to be holding Europe’s biggest consumer golf show in London and continuing the trend for innovation – and who knows, come 2012 golf could be an Olympic sport…?”
Tickets to next week’s London Golf Show are available at a discounted rate when purchased in advance. Visit or
