The Golf Show Group has opened up trade and press accreditation for anyone who works within the Golf industry to visit the Manchester Golf Show free of charge, to find new products to stock or distribute and to network with new and existing clients.

The Manchester Golf Show will be held from 24th-26th April at EventCity, adjacent to the Trafford Centre. Email simon@golfshowco.com to register.

The Manchester Golf Show, which includes the Golf Tourism Show, will have exhibitors coming from the USA, Europe, worldwide, and the UK, who are all keen to meet potential trade partners in the UK and Europe.

Simon Jones, Sales Director for The Golf Show Group explains, “Over the years the London, Manchester and NEC Golf Shows have been responsible for launching some great brands and products into the UK golf industry. At past shows the trade has either paid for entry or tried to obtain some sort of accreditation. We have opened up the doors and created this free trade accreditation to help grow the industry. Companies exhibit from around the world with products that suit many pro shops and distributors, and the golf services industry has the opportunity to get face to face with our exhibitors.

There is a fantastic opportunity to network at the show, we all love golf (why else would we be working in the industry) and the show is a golfers paradise, with gadgets from the weird to the wonderful, the latest gear and technology, and the chance to get up close and personal with the people behind the products. It couldn’t be simpler to register, all you need to do is email simon@golfshowco.com and you will be issued with a trade pass when you arrive. I look forward to seeing many of you there.”

The Golf Show Group opened up its doors to the trade at last year’s Manchester Golf Show and received some fantastic success stories. All the companies looking to meet and do business with the UK trade succeeded, whether it was finding a UK partner or gaining interest from the Golf press.

Peter O’Dea brought Game Golf from San Francisco into the UK for the first time at the Manchester Golf Show and said “The support we received from Simon and the team at the Manchester Golf Show was absolutely phenomenal. That support allowed us to have a successful show and identify key distribution partners”

Tim Mooney from Giannini Putters, also in California, commented, “Prior to attending the show in Manchester, we had been seeking assistance in the UK and Europe for a little over a year with little or no success.  The Manchester Golf Show has been an integral part of growing our business on a worldwide basis. I would like to thank the staff of the show for all of their cooperation and help in finding our new distributor partners and compliment them on a well-run and efficient show”.

Rick Buchaan of Biion Footwear came from Canada and added “The Manchester Show was an amazing success for Biion Footwear not only did we receive incredible sales from consumers, we solidified key strategic distribution contracts in Europe and the UK.”
