June 11, 2013, Richmond, BC (ISN) – The Professional Golfers’ Association of British Columbia (PGA of BC) is proud to announce the return of a provincial trade show in the fall of 2013.
The absence of a Trade Show in 2012 put a strain on the buying season as a lack of an end date coupled without having added incentive to look for new products and services to improve facilities directly impacted both PGA of BC members and the vendors whom rely on Golf Professionals to promote and sell their products.
After much collaboration and feedback from exhibitors and members through various forms of Communication, the PGA of BC Board of Directors is excited to announce a unified effort by both members and industry partners in creating plans for a successful show in 2013.
The logistics of the new show were established after careful considerations of several factors. First, the show will feature a new location, the Richmond Olympic Oval, which boosts one of the most fascinating settings and meets all imaginable requirements of trade shows and exhibitions in the Metro Vancouver area. Conveniently located only five minutes from Vancouver International Airport, the Richmond Olympic Oval is travel-friendly and ideally situated in a location that is conveniently accessible by members and exhibitors, regardless of if they are local or visitors to the Richmond area.
Secondly, when discussing dates for the show, the PGA of BC did not have to look much farther than to learn from the success of previous shows. The 2013 trade show will schedule back to its original dates, immediately following the Thanksgiving weekend. Moreover, lengthening show hours on two days while eliminating the third will help streamline efficiency while acknowledging the need to save on expenses.
Finally, the PGA of BC Board of Directors is proud to announce that booth costs have been significantly reduced, some upwards of over 40% off rates of the 2011 Trade Show. All-inclusive booth costs for this show will start at only $1,150 per 10’x10′.
