2022 GCSAA Conference & Trade Show
Feb 5 – Feb 10 all-day

Known as the Golf Industry Show since 2005, annual gathering brings together golf course management professionals for education, networking, industry innovations.

Lawrence, Kan.  – The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) has announced the world’s largest golf course management event has been rebranded to the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show. The new name will debut at the 2022 GCSAA Conference and Trade Show Feb. 5-10 in San Diego.

Known as the Golf Industry Show since 2005, the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show will continue to offer a dynamic week of unparalleled education, networking opportunities and access to golf course and facility management solutions for golf industry professionals.

The event is produced by GCSAA along with presenting partners, the Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA) and American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) and participating partners, the United States Golf Association (USGA), National Golf Course Owners Association of America (NGCOA) and National Golf Foundation (NGF).

“The GCSAA Conference and Trade Show rebranding is not about changes to the event, but is based on the strength of the GCSAA brand,” GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans said. “As GCSAA’s brand recognition has grown over the years, it makes sense to have our premier event share in that. Along with our partners, we’ll still feature opportunities for collaboration and team building among superintendents, architects, builders and more.”

The GCSAA Conference rebranding is part of a strategic effort to bring all GCSAA entities under the association name and comes on the heels of the rebranding of its philanthropic organization to the GCSAA Foundation in May.

“As we move closer to our 100th anniversary in 2026, bringing all aspects of GCSAA’s operations under the GCSAA name not only makes sound business sense, but also gives a clear tie to our long history,” Evans said.

The 2022 GCSAA Conference will return to an in-person gathering after the 2021 event was held virtually due to the pandemic. The event will kick off with the GCSAA Golf Championships Feb. 5-7 in San Diego and will include play at Torrey Pines, site of the 2021 U.S. Men’s Open. The conference portion will begin with a Welcome Reception on Monday night. The bulk of education and the trade show will be condensed to Tuesday through Thursday in order to offer attendees the full event experience while requiring fewer days away from work and home. In addition, a virtual learning component will be offered after the in-person event for those who want to take additional education or for those who were unable to attend in person.

Registration for the 2022 GCSAA Conference and Trade Show will open Nov. 2, 2021. For more information, visit www.gcsaaconference.com.

NZ Golf Conference making progress towards August 2022
Aug 8 @ 11:21 am – Aug 10 @ 12:21 pm

The New Zealand Golf Industry Council (NZGIC) is pleased to report on progress towards our “whole of golf goal” conference.

In May this year NZGIC engaged PaR nz Corporate Events to deliver the conference on behalf of the industry.  PaR nz are currently applying to several government tourism bodies for support and funding.  Christchurch is a popular destination, as is Auckland and Queenstown.  Final venue partners, the location and the conference facilities are due to be announced by October.

“We are bringing everyone together for what we have all been missing, a face to face, collaborative and informative three days – the whole industry in one location.” Said Sam Sullivan (NZGIC Chairman).

Key areas of delivery are the presentation and engagement of industry leaders, golfing legends, and high-profile speakers from around the globe – in person or with exciting virtual attendance.

NZGIC are in planning and discussions with all areas of the industry; golf courses, retail, equipment, green keeping supplies and equipment, media, travel and tourism, web design, social media as well as areas like human resources, accounting, business planning and general management to present an array of exhibitors thus attracting all involved in this game we love.

‘Thought-provoking and engaging speakers, lots to see and do with a plethora of exhibitions mixed with much time for networking and break-out sessions, and the chance to just catch up in what has been and still is, a trying time for us all’ noted Sullivan.

This is the first time that all the sectors of the golf industry have come together for a joint Conference and Trade Show and will provide the opportunity to network, share, and disseminate information about new initiatives, concepts, research, and best practices happening within the golf industry. Key partners to the conference include Golf New Zealand, The NZ PGA, NZ Golf Course Superintendents Association and Golf Managers Association of NZ. Registration for the conference will open on 1 January 2022.

About 2022

This is the first conference of its kind in New Zealand – and possibly the world. The initiative will bring together all the sectors of the golf industry so that delegates and attendees will have the opportunity to network amongst both New Zealand and international golfing peers.

Presentations will provide critical insights and lively debates on issues facing the golf industry now and moving into the future.

Presented by the New Zealand Golf Industry Council the conference incorporates the PGA of NZ, NZ Golf Course Superintendents Association and Golf Managers Association of NZ annual conferences.

About the Owners and Hosts of  Golf Matters 2022
