'Everything Under the Sun' Theme for Golf Industry Show

GISKansas, United States: The annual Golf Industry Show [GIS] will be held in San Diego for the third time in the past seven years, with the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America [GCSAA] focusing on key issues ranging from water conservation to advocacy.
GCSAA will also recognise its annual award winners, including Herb Kohler, recipient of the Old Tom Morris Award.
The 2016 GIS will carry the theme ‘Everything Under the Sun’ and be held from February 6-11 at the San Diego Convention Centre.
The show kicks off each year with the GCSAA Golf Championships, followed by four days of an innovative education and trade show event designed for golf facility owners and managers, including the association’s 17,500 members, as well as for the industries that market to those facilities. The GIS was also held in San Diego in 2010 and 2013.
“San Diego is one of our most popular destinations for the Golf Industry Show, and our industry partners and members look forward to going back time and time again,” said Rhett Evans, the GCSAA’s CEO. “This is truly the place to be if you are in the golf management field, as a golf facility owner or an industry partner.”
More than 500 exhibitors are expected, with most coming from the four sectors of equipment, turf applications, golf carts and accessories. The next events are scheduled for Orlando in 2017 and San Antonio in 2018.
“The Golf Industry Show consistently provides a valuable opportunity for industry minds to come together to exchange ideas and strengthen relationships,” said Stephanie Schwenke, Turf Market Manager for Syngenta, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“Our team is proud to partner with GCSAA to support turf education and honour the hard work that makes this industry so great.”
In addition to offering programmes for industry professionals, the GIS also reaches students through the annual Collegiate Turf Bowl, a highlight of the week for hundreds of future industry professionals who test their classroom and field knowledge as part of a team representing their school. A team from Pennsylvania State University is the defending champion.
The GIS is presented jointly with the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA), along with supporting organisations: the Golf Course Builders Association of America, the American Society of Golf Course Architects, the National Golf Foundation and the United States Golf Association.
