Lawrence, Kansas, United States: The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) is introducing Facility pricing for the virtual 2021 Golf Industry Show (GIS) in February, which will offer valuable education for everyone on the golf course maintenance team for one price.
The All-Access Facility Package includes 78 educations sessions, which can be viewed during the event the first week of February as well as on-demand with 30 days of extended access.
The package also includes the virtual trade show, networking events, virtual visits from special guests and more for US$850 (US$1,050 for non-GCSAA members) for an unlimited number of team members. Each team member who registers will receive 3.0 continuing education points (CEUs). The Individual All-Access Package is US$250 less and available to GCSAA members for US$600 or US$750 for non-members.
“When we made the decision to transition to a virtual show, we knew that the virtual format would offer opportunities for those who have been unable to attend due to the travel expenses or time commitment of an in-person event,” GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans said.
“It also opens up the option for every member of the maintenance team to participate. The facility package is a great value for everyone on the team to not only further their own professional development but to also benefit the facility with the insight, innovations and connections that are made at GIS,” he added.
In addition to the All-Access packages, base packages will be available that include 36 education sessions with seven days of on-demand access, plus the trade show and other events. The Base Facility Package is US$500 for GCSAA members (US$700 for non-members) with 1.5 CEUs for each registered participant. The Base Individual Package is US$350 for GCSAA members and US$500 for non-members.
Registration for the 2021 Golf Industry Show will open October 13.
GCSAA and presenting partners, the Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA) and the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA), will offer a virtual experience that will continue the GIS’s long tradition of connecting attendees, exhibitors and industry experts through a progressive week of unparalleled education opportunities and access to golf facility solutions for golf industry professionals.
The theme of the 2021 GIS – ‘Your space. Your pace. All in one place.’ – not only reflects the ability of participants to attend the show from the safety of their homes or offices and consume the content on their own schedules, but also speaks to the convergence of industry experts that will be a part of the high-calibre education line-up in keeping with past GIS events.
