It’s Show Time (Again)

January 11th, 2017

Next week we have Continue to Learn; GolfBIC; and the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (aka BTME) all taking place in the lovely Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate. Then  it’s the PGA Merchandise Show at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida.

I am lucky enough to be attending both events and look forward to seeing GBN readers and advertisers on both sides of ‘the pond’. Send me an email if you would like to meet up.
