Last week, our Herd headed to the “Sunshine State” for the 66th Annual PGA Merchandise Show. Known as “The MAJOR of Golf Business,” the PGA Merchandise Show is the world’s largest and most influential golf industry event. The Orlando convention consists of product presentations from the game’s top market leaders including the world’s largest outdoor product demonstration, multiple designer fashion shows, teaching clinics, education seminars, career workshops, industry awards, networking receptions and more. It is the ideal platform to grow business, participation and interest in golf.
