October 12-13, 2016
The PGA of BC is pleased to announce that the newly branded PGA of BC Buying Show will return for another year to the Richmond Olympic Oval in 2016.
Making its inaugural appearance at the new facility in 2013, the show features industry exhibitors showcasing an array of products, from equipment, apparel, carts, accessories, golf balls, footwear, training aids, software, sunglasses, signage, storage solutions, and more. The Show is attended by the majority of the PGA of BC membership, representing over 120 golf facilities throughout the province, making it the Industry's largest buying show in British Columbia.
The beautiful Richmond Olympic Oval is conveniently located 5 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport and twenty minutes from both the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal and downtown Vancouver. The Oval boasts one of the most fascinating settings and meets all imaginable requirements of trade shows and exhibitions in the Metro Vancouver area. It is travel-friendly and ideally situated in a location that is conveniently accessible by members and exhibitors. We look forward to welcoming you this October.

All exhibitors will be granted two (2) designated exhibitor passes for the show. Should you have any concerns with your booth, please contact Donald Miyazaki at firstname.lastname@example.org for prior approval.
Regular Move-in will be on a scheduled basis in 30-minute appointment blocks. More details to follow.
Booth space is allocated on the basis of several factors. It is of primary concern to the PGA of BC that all exhibitors are pleased with their participation in the Buying Show. Sponsors of Association events and programs receive first considerations. Subsequent booth layout is subject to the decision made by the Buying Show Committee. The Richmond Olympic Oval has limited floor space & therefore the PGA of British Columbia will do its best to accommodate all exhibitors’ requests.
Move-Out will commence at 4:00pm on Thursday October 13th. Exhibitors tearing down booths prior to this time will be subject to fines and further discipline
