Sponsors back Golf Business Forum’s 2018 return

Sponsors back Golf Business Forum’s 2018 return
May 4, 2017

Scheduled to return in July next year, the second Golf Business Forum will be looking to grow on the success of its inaugural edition in 2016 where it provided a new outlet to deliver education and networking for managers and owners from the public golf sphere.

Having attracted stakeholders from Australian golf, including member-based clubs, vendors, local councils and national and international industry heavyweights, oganisers Guy Chapple and Andrew Davies are gathering content, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for the second event in 2018.

Davies explains “we'll be in a position to announce the broad agenda in the next few months.

“The pressure is on to deliver, but we've got some exciting ideas and with the support of our key sponsors we’ll be delivering a bigger and better event in 2018.” 

Sponsors from 2016 - Platinum Partner MPower MSL and foundation partner Golf Australia - have been eager to get back on board to replicate the success of their involvement with the inaugural event, with Chapple acknowledging their support as instrumental in ensuring the event maintains its quality.

Chapple comments "we're incredibly grateful to all our sponsors, not just for the funding support, but for the vote of confidence.

“We’re delighted that all who were involved in the 2016 event have confirmed their commitment for 2018." 

Explaining the role of Golf Australia, Chief Executive Stephen Pitt adds “Golf Australia was delighted to support the first Golf Business Forum as a ‘foundation partner’.

“The inaugural event was an outstanding success. It exceeded our expectations and facilitated some important new conversations and connections for our team. Golf Australia is delighted to confirm its commitment and support for the 2018 edition.”

The newly released sponsorship prospectus details a wide range of sponsorship and exhibition packages available for 2018.

Looking to the event, Davies concludes “we want to make sure that the content delivers not just tools and strategies integral to the success of those at the coalface of Aussie golf, but also some inspiration and conversation.

“We all need a bit of positive thinking and delegates from last year have told us they came away full of ideas and energy for what lay ahead.

"We will be launching the 2018 themes and keynote speakers later this year and will be offering restricted early bird rates to our rates to our registered contacts at the same time. We would encourage everyone to sign up for updates on our website so they don't miss out.”
