Following the tremendous success of the 2023 PGA Show in January, the strong golf industry response to the mid-season PGA Buying & Education Summit at PGA Frisco, July 31 – Aug. 2, is quickly filling exhibit hall space at Omni PGA Frisco Resort. The detailed schedule for the three-day Summit was announced March 22. PGA Professional and buyer registration, as well as housing information, will be announced soon and available at PGABuyingSummit.com.
The PGA Buying & Education Summit will bring together influential PGA Professionals and golf buyers to meet with a curated group of top golf brands showcasing the latest innovations and trends in apparel, accessory, gift and award, equipment, technology and golf lifestyle products. The Summit will offer opportunities for sourcing products, learning new business strategies and networking with industry peers during fun, experiential events across the PGA Frisco campus and the PGA District golf entertainment spaces.
“The response to the mid-season PGA Buying & Education Summit at PGA Frisco has been exceptionally positive and we are approaching a sellout of exhibit spaces in the ballrooms of Omni PGA Frisco Resort,” said PGA Golf Exhibitions Vice President Marc Simon. “We are working with interested manufacturers to accommodate as many as possible. And we look forward to providing participating companies, PGA Professionals and buyers with a productive and fun experience at the event, and within the exciting new home of the PGA of America at PGA Frisco.”
The Summit will begin on Monday, July 31 with a full day for One2One Buying Appointments at Omni PGA Frisco Resort, and the PGA Education Conference at the new state-of-the-art PGA Frisco Professional Development Center inside the Home of the PGA of America.
The exhibit floor will be open Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 1-2, at Omni PGA Frisco Resort. Golf equipment and technology demonstrations and education will take place simultaneously at the PGA District, adjacent to the Resort.
