London, England: Registrations for the Golf Business & Industry Convention are now open and the programme looks to be the most exciting to date.
The two-day event will feature a number of thought-provoking seminars and discussions, designed to aid golf course and range owners and operators to enhance their businesses, attract new members, grow the game of golf as well as providing a chance to network with other golf and range owners, operators and some of golf’s most influential figureheads.
Among the speakers who will set the tone for the event is Grant Wright, Chief Executive Officer of World of Golf, who has vast experience in making golf fun. He oversees the largest collection of Adventure Golf Courses, as well as running the busiest golf range in Europe.
Golf operators also contributing include Ian Bonser, Owner of the ‘National Award Winning’ 3 Hammers Golf Complex for the past 30 years, who will explain how they have developed a successful and profitable business, attracting hundreds of new golfers to the game each year.
The event will also see the return of Gregg Patterson, former General Manager of the Beach Club in Santa Monica and now President of Tribal Magic, who will address the principles and practices of team building.
Steve Otto from The R&A will talk about the way the game is played at all levels and show ways in which data can be used to guide decisions, whilst Nick Pink, CEO of England Golf, Sandy Jones, CEO of the PGA, Jim Croxton, CEO of BIGGA, Lodewijk Klootwijk, CEO of the EGCOA and Andy Lloyd-Skinner, UKGCOA CEO will all take part in a Forum Discussion and Q&A from the delegates.
