“If you are stake-holder in the golf industry in Asia, this is an event that you must not miss – it is the only business to business golf event of its kind anywhere in Asia,” explained Mike Sebastian, chief executive officer of the Asia Pacific Golf Group, the owner and producer of the Summit.

It is a premier knowledge event that brings together some of the best brains in the business of golf. Sebastian went on to say, “Experts who are at the cutting edge of industry trends, club management best practices, turf care, social issues impacting golf and the perennial challenge on how to grow the game of golf in an ever-changing leisure and recreational landscape will be the main focal points of the Summit”.

The thrust of APGS 2012 is to identify opportunities with a view to exploit these trends for the betterment of the golf industry. It will also look at problems confronting the industry and will throw up solutions to get around these challenges.

“APGS 2012 is not just a summit – it is a summit with a difference….. it aims to prepare all stake-holders to face the future with a positive mind-set and armed with all the tools to take on the challenges ahead”, Sebastian pointed out.

World class experts who are acknowledged leaders in their respective disciplines have been booked for the Summit including:
