‘Everything under the Sun’

February 12th, 2016

The organisers of this year’s GIS (Golf Industry Show) truly delivered on their promise, with 550 exhibitors inside the San Diego Convention Center and 80˚ temperatures outside.

GIS follows BTME in Harrogate and the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. It closed just a few hours ago, declaring ‘a rise in all measures’ including total attendance of 12,600.

All-in-all, it’s been a great opening to the year. Now all we need is some decent weather to start the season.
