Organisers thrilled after three-day event in Glasgow delivers on ‘key objectives’
The organisers of the 2015 Scottish Golf Show have hailed this year’s event after it met its key objectives of delivering greater interaction and a massively enhanced consumer experience.
Over 17,200 keen golfers attended the tenth annual edition of the three-day event, which took place over the weekend at the SECC in Glasgow.
This year’s focus was firmly on giving those customers the opportunity to get more products in their hands than ever before through a range of exciting new interactive features - and it duly delivered.
Fun new elements, including the ‘Vokey Challenge’, ‘Get Rich Pitch’ Bunker Challenge, FootGolf Challenge, and the hugely popular golphinforkids Kids’ Zone each made a huge impression on their show debuts and combined with a host of other exhibitors.
Scottish Golf Show organiser Tom Lovering said feedback from consumers was fantastic. “This year, we set ourselves the target of creating more opportunities for our show visitors to pick up the latest clubs and actually hit shots. The comments I heard and feedback I have already received from consumers and exhibitors alike tells me we have more than succeeded in meeting those goals.
“Some stand-holders have already reported record sales and we are already in the process of taking bookings for next year’s show, which, rest assured, will continue to raise the bar even higher.”
As well as all of the interactive elements, this year’s show also featured a record number of exhibitors, the largest driving range of its kind in Scotland, a gigantic retail shop operated by Europe’s No.1 golf retailer American Golf, trick shot shows, short game clinics, and much more.
Scotland’s top PGA professionals, meanwhile, gave away hundreds of free lessons over the course of the three days, underlining the show’s commitment to helping develop golfers’ games.
Lovering added: “The Scottish Golf Show is comfortably the most successful consumer golf show in the UK and we are determined to maintain our position into next year and beyond.”
