Vancouver, BC – In its inaugural year, the Vancouver GOLFEXPO, owned and managed by the NGCOA Canada proved to be a hit with golf courses and golfers from across the Lower Mainland. Although the final numbers are not all in, early indicators are showing increased golfer traffic throughout the week-end with tremendously positive feedback from both golfers and exhibitors.
The NGCOA Canada purchased the Vancouver Golf & Travel Show in 2017 and rebranded it to the Vancouver GOLFEXPO, making it the 7th consumer golf show in its portfolio of marketing benefits for members.
New elements for 2018 included a redesigned show floor providing consumers greater access to show features and presentations. The GolfBC long drive contest added to the fun and excitement over the two-day event combined with PGA of BC stage presentations and putting lessons provided by the Eaglequest Learning Academy.
The Vancouver GOLFEXPO included approximately 80 exhibiting golf courses, travel operators, golf products, and manufacturers; and featured the Peak Golf retail area and GOLFEXPO demo range.
“The Vancouver GOLFEXPO, on behalf of the NGCOA Canada, appreciates the commitment and support of the golf industry as a whole in BC”, says Erica Beck, Show Manager and regional director of the NGCOA Canada – BC Chapter. “The objective of the Vancouver GOLFEXPO is to provide a unique and dynamic marketing tool to our members and the golf industry and we are pleased with the results from this past weekend. We now look forward to working with our members as we move ahead with our planning for February 2019.”
The NGCOA Canada and Vancouver GOLFEXPO would like to extend our appreciation to sponsors and exhibitors for helping to make this year’s event a tremendous success; and to all golfers for their support of this show and encourage everyone to play more golf, more often.
