BGIA Board Backs New Show

October 21st, 2016

Having been in this business a very long time (I am much older than I look) I am confident that for many of our readers today’s talking point will be the announcement that the British Golf Industry Association is backing the proposed new European Golf Merchandise Show to be held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena next October. It’s déjà vu all over again.
