PGA, GCSAA and CMAA all plan live events in 2022

The Golf Industry’s big trade shows are all planning live events in 2022, with the PGA Show leading the way with a live event, January 25 to 28th. PGA Golf Exhibitions has announced that a survey of PGA Professionals and top buyers who frequently attend the PGA Show shows that 70 percent plan to attend the 2022 PGA Show. Another 19 percent are undecided. 

More than 450 exhibitors are slated to appear at the show, with more than 650 brands represented. The show usually has 1,000 exhibitors and 40,000 attendees. The show said it will follow CDC guidelines, local public health guidance, and host venue protocols. 

“The 2022 PGA Show will play an especially important role in helping the industry and PGA Professionals move forward from the pandemic, capitalizing on the growing interest in the sport and uncovering new tools to improve the grassroots golf experience,” said PGA of America President Jim Richerson. “Unprecedented strains on operations and supply chain issues due to COVID-19 have impacted nearly all industries, including golf. The PGA Show will continue to build business for all who participate and be a bridge in 2022 to an exciting new era in golf.” 

The GCSAA Conference and Trade Show will take place in San Diego on February 5-10. GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans shared the following video about the upcoming conference.

Finally, the CMAA is hosting the World Conference and Club Business Expo also coming to San Diego on February 19-23. The show will return to in-person attendance to allow attendees to maximize networking while hearing from business and industry experts and attend interactive forums to help overcome challenges and build the industry. The conference’s goals are to help attendees advance their career and expand their network, meet their certification goals, find new talent for their clubs and mentor future industry leaders, gain new ideas and insights for their club, and research and secure solutions for their club’s challenges.
