PGA Golf Exhibitions, in partnership with the PGA of America, announced this week the shift to an all-virtual format for the 2021 PGA Merchandise Show, January 26-29.

Prioritizing the health and well-being of the global golf community during the ongoing pandemic, the decision was made with guidance and feedback from exhibitors, attendees, PGA Professionals, the PGA of America, key industry associations, vendor partners and additional event stakeholders.

The PGA Show

The PGA Show’s Virtual Experience & Marketplace will drive business, education and networking through a cutting-edge, highly interactive virtual platform featuring:

  • New product launch events
  • Dynamic exhibitor showrooms
  • Commerce applications
  • Education sessions & industry presentations
  • One-to-one meetings
  • Group networking
  • Special events
  • Golf celebrity and influencer engagement programs, and so much more!

PGA Professionals, golf retailers, industry leaders and manufacturers from around the globe will be able to attend the Show from the safety of their homes, facilities or offices, and actively reconnect with the industry to drive substantial business results. The easy-to-use platform will become available for appointment-scheduling in mid-December, with full content provided live during PGA Show Week (January 26-29) and available on-demand for an extended period after the Show concludes.

Prospering in an unreal world

In these uncertain times, it is the obligation of both the Golf Managers Association of New Zealand (GMANZ)and the New Zealand Golf Course Superintendents Association Inc.(NZGCSA) to provide the best outcomes for New Zealand’s Golf industry by bringing golf managers and golf course superintendents together in a safe and collaboratory manner to discuss opportunities to grow the game in these unusual times.

Working in our own silos will not have the impact needed to survive in what is a highly competitive sporting-based environment. We need to be able to work together across both our sectors if we are going to have a real impact.

The secret about collaborating and cross-sectoral work is it requires us to work in new and different ways. It can be hard, and it requires us to give things up or to renegotiate loyalties.  It requires us to care about the things that our collaborators care about. But when it works, it can be powerful.

We think it is important that we share what we are learning.  We are not great at collaboration in Aotearoa New Zealand and the challenges we need to navigate are going to force us to do more and more of it.  So, if we are going to get better at it, let us learn from each other.

We look forward to sharing further details of the planned Summit as we progress our planning.
