The UK Golf Federation and OGRO have re-launched GolfBIC 2019 and it’s going back to its roots – returning to the Marriott Forest of Arden Resort (pictured above) for the Golf Business and Industry Convention.
Having been away for three years, the past success of the GolfBIC has been in its timing and location and having key activities to drive proprietary golf course and driving range owners to see and meet major suppliers targeted at their business.
The chance for service suppliers and equipment brands to meet over 150 golf facility owners and discuss business as the season begins is major facture in having a successful 2019. Lots of Exhibition time, lots of networking and three interesting industry speakers make for a great exhibition.
Doug Poole CEO UK Golf Federation comments: “There is no better place to be than GolfBIC this coming March – so many opportunities to grow all our businesses together in one perfect location and meet key people in the commercial golf market.”
Colin Jenkins Chairman of OGRO added: “It’s great to being going back to the Marriott Forest of Arden. Our event is perfect for all those involved in the golf industry. It’s easy to get to and we have an excellent set of speakers for March 2019. We look forward to seeing our old friends again and making new ones.”
GolfBIC is open to all proprietary golf facility owners and golf industry service suppliers and golf brands. See contact details below to receive further information.
