GolfBIC is the annual industry show for the proprietary golf course and driving range owners in the UK with the Monday being a day packed full of key golf industry presentations, the opportunity to meet major suppliers for our businesses and enjoy supportive networking.

GolfBIC returns to The Forest of Arden Golf Resort (above) 16th/17th March 2020

There will be key industry business seminars sessions for all the delegates and the renowned exhibition for members to meet with major brands and service suppliers. Networking will play a big part of the day, especially at the evening Gala Dinner where good business ideas and practice can be discussed.

Neil Burke – Director of Horsham Leisure Ltd (pictured)  commented: “Having worked in the golf industry for over 35 years and attended any number of disappointing conferences, the advent of GolfBIC has provided, over the years, by far the most valuable forum for commercially motivated and progressive operators to exchange ideas, understand new concepts in the industry and network with individuals facing the same unique challenges of the golf industry. It is testimony to the UKGF that they have taken this valuable event and developed it in the last couple of years.”

Confirmed already to present for 2020 are top business speakers – Scott Seaborn – a digital transformation expert, he has worked for a huge range of clients has won more than 20 advertising and creative awards and Mark Robb who specialises in increasing human & organisational performance whose clients include Coca Cola, Specsavers, Clarks, Sony,  Marks & Spencer, Halfords, P&O Cruises, Marriott Hotels and Costa Coffee to name a few. Plus there is a further key speaker to be confirmed – a surprise announcement coming soon!

Stephen Towers – CEO of Crown Golf believes: “I have been attending GolfBIC for several years and it has always provided a great opportunity to share ideas, discuss and engage with peers across the industry on innovations, as well as shared commercial challenges. The quality of speakers in recent years has also been a significant draw and has offered a great value opportunity to bring colleagues from across our business to learn and develop their leadership and business skills.”

Having over 400 golf facility members the UK Golf Federation offers an easy and relaxed pathway to trying golf and fully supports “growing golf participation though their open access golf facilities “
