ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 13, 2023) – RepSpark and PGA Golf Exhibitions announced today that the PGA Show Exclusive Community powered by RepSpark, a B2B digital commerce platform, will help facilitate connections between brands and buyers and ease transactions before, during and after the 2023 PGA Buying & Education Summit at PGA Frisco, July 31 – Aug. 2, in Frisco, Texas.
The online B2B platform will feature PGA Buying & Education Summit exhibiting brands and facilitate connections between exhibitors and attendees before the show to explore new brands and request access to brands; during the show to support in-person connections; and after the show for follow-ups, continued connections, and order management. In addition, the online B2B eCommerce platform will stay live after the show to support brand and buyer relationships year-round and drive ROI for everyone who attends the summit.
In addition to building the PGA Show Exclusive Community, RepSpark will be sponsoring the Live Fashion Show on Monday evening, July 31, 2023. RepSpark will also be present onsite with the aim of educating attendees on platform best practices.
“The interaction and energy at PGA Shows has been exhilarating! With more brands and attendees coming together in person, we are honored to provide the tool for reps and retailers to optimize their time together, further cultivate relationships and transact digitally at next month’s PGA Buying & Education Summit,” said Meghann Butcher, CEO of RepSpark.
The PGA Show Exclusive Community, powered by RepSpark, will be available for exhibitors in June to allow time for onboarding and preparing their digital storefront for the July 31 – Aug. 2 event. All PGA Buying & Education Summit attendees will be able to access the online community to connect with brands pre-show to help maximize their in-person meetings. The PGA Exclusive Community will be available for post-show connections and transactions as well.
The new location and format for the PGA Buying & Education Summit have resulted in a tremendous industry response with more than 130 top and emerging golf brands planning to showcase the latest trends in apparel, accessory, and golf lifestyle products in the sold-out exhibit ballrooms of the new Omni PGA Frisco Resort. Participating brands also have been capped for the invitation-only One2One buying appointments. In addition to product sourcing, the packed three-day schedule also features equipment and technology education, a live fashion show, Demo Night, national-level PGA Education, and peer networking during experiential events at the golf-centered entertainment and dining area of the Monument Realty PGA District.
Participation in the PGA Show Buying & Education Summit exhibits, special events and networking programs are complimentary for PGA Professionals and golf buyers. Summit registration, education enrollment and hotel reservations can be made at PGABuyingSummit.com.
