Ontario PGA to Manage Ontario PGA Buying Show Beginning this August


(Pickering, Ont., - January 24, 2011) – The Ontario PGA Board of Directors is pleased to announce the rebirth of the Ontario PGA Buying Show. Previously known as the Ontario PGA Merchandise Show the Ontario PGA Buying show will take place at the Toronto Congress Centre on August 25, 2011 and conclude on August 26, 2011.

“We are very excited about the new direction for the Ontario PGA Buying Show,” said Ontario PGA President, Dustin Kerr-Taylor. “It is no secret the old model for the Ontario show was not working and we feel the new date and location will ensure success for all industry stakeholders,” added Kerr-Taylor.

The 2011 Ontario PGA Buying Show’s focus will be on writing business. The Ontario PGA feels this is what is needed for its members, manufacturers and suppliers.  In order to facilitate that, the Ontario PGA Buying Show will have a different look and feel from years past. Gone are the non golf related booths, in is a strict focus on the golf industry and providing value for all attendees and exhibitors.

“The show tagline will be ‘Back to Buying’ and we plan to present the show in a very business oriented fashion,” said Kerr-Taylor. “Our steering committee is working hard to provide the best possible show which will ensure success for both attendees and exhibitors.”

The Ontario PGA Buying Show begins Thursday August 25, just one day following the Green Grass One viewing event which also takes place at the Congress Centre. The GG1 viewing event invites the top on-course retailers from across Canada to view products in a professional manner which mirrors many of the top big box buyer’s experiences.
Registration for the show will commence in February and information packages will be available online and via email at that time.
