Since 2013, the Buying Show has featured industry exhibitors showcasing an array of products, including equipment, apparel, carts, accessories, golf balls, footwear, training aids, software, sunglasses, signage, and storage solutions, to name a few. The Buying Show serves as a one-stop-shop for all golf retailers throughout the province.
The PGA of BC Buying Show will return on Oct. 13-14, 2021, conducted once again in a virtual format. Although we were hopeful to return to our traditional, in-person setting at Richmond Olympic Oval this year, with continued uncertainty around overall public-health circumstances, as well as what sizes and types of gatherings will be permissible by the fall, the Association has opted to host the Buying Show virtually to ensure the health and safety of all exhibitors and attendees.
In 2020, the PGA of BC was the only zone within the PGA of Canada to conduct a Buying Show. Although a virtual Buying Show was a new experience for all involved, the 2020 event was extremely well received by attendees and exhibitors alike. With a number of enhancements to the online platform used to conduct the Buying Show, we are confident that this year’s gathering will build upon the successes of our inaugural virtual event. To gain a better sense of the functionality of a virtual Buying Show, please view the platform tour video created in advance of the 2020 event at the bottom of this page, which provides a basic outline of the amenities available.
Traditionally, this event is attended by the majority of the PGA of BC membership, representing over 150 golf facilities throughout the province, making it the Industry's largest buying show in British Columbia.
Exhibitor registration is now available, with early-registration booth pricing of $250 (plus GST) offered until June 30. General registration will extend until Sept. 30, with exhibitor booths priced at $350 plus GST starting July 1.
