PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Dec. 3, 2021) – Registration for the 2022 PGA Show, Jan. 25-28, in Orlando, Fla., is now open for PGA and LPGA Professionals, golf buyers and industry professionals at PGAShow.com. The PGA Show is the largest annual gathering of PGA Members and the international golf industry.
The 69th edition of golf’s longest-running, and most influential business event will reunite the global golf community in person at the Orange County Convention Center for the first time since January 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The PGA Show will follow all health and safety standards, based on CDC guidelines, local public health guidance and host venue protocols, to support a safe and comfortable experience at the 2022 PGA Show.
Many of golf’s most recognizable brands, including Bridgestone Golf, Cleveland Golf, COBRA PUMA Golf, PING, Srixon and XXIO will serve as anchors of the PGA Equipment Forum. They will join veteran companies and those new to the golf marketplace to create a dynamic Show floor with a multitude of in-person product experiential exhibits featuring more than 600 golf brands.
The renewal of the PGA Show features a heightened focus on providing solutions to today’s business climate through education and industry programming, and a return to in-person product experiences and peer networking.
PGA Show Week will begin again with the National Golf Course Owners Association Golf Business Conference, Jan. 24-26, followed by the AGM Golf Retail Conference on Jan. 25. The world’s largest professional demo day returns on Jan. 25 at the Orange County National Golf Center with a new emphasis on clubfitting education and demonstrations, moving forward with a new event name, the PGA Show Demo & Fitting Day. The PGA Education Conference, also now open for registration at PGAShow.com, begins on Jan. 25 with outdoor coaching and clubfitting workshops at the Demo & Fitting Day and golf operations and executive management education sessions at the Convention Center. Complimentary PGA Professional workshops on Membership topics will be offered in the PGA Member Business Center during Show days. All PGA Education sessions Jan. 26-28 will be scheduled with less overlap during Show Floor hours, and most PGA Education programs will be available virtually after the event on the PGA Show 365 platform, PGA Show Connects.
After more than 18 months of virtual business dealings, many PGA Professionals and buyers are ready to return to in-person product experiences and peer networking at the PGA Show. PGA Professionals can look forward to a new PGA of America pavilion, the PGA Hub, featuring an industry presentation stage, a PGA Professional Lounge, PGA Coaching demonstrations, PGA Career Services and activations for Association initiatives and business partners. The popular Equipment Test Center will feature new technology enhancements and relocate the putting green and short game area near the indoor driving range to create one centralized equipment experiential and testing area. The Fashion Buyer Lounge will be more centrally located in the Apparel Hall and accommodate the annual live Fashion Show, now on the opening night of the PGA Show. Attendees can also look forward to a return of popular Show floor destinations including the New Product Zone, Golf Travel Pavilion, Inventors Spotlight Pavilion, Golf Fitness, Wellness & Instruction Pavilion and the Adaptive Golf Center.
