You go to Hollywood to meet movie stars and Silicon Valley to meet computer programmers, so it only makes sense to meet golfers, golf superintendents and others in the industry at the 2011 Golf Industry Show in Orlando, Florida.
Besides the beautiful weather, Florida boasts more golf courses than any other state in the country. In fact there are more than 1,250 golf courses, meaning they have more golf courses than miles of beach front. Florida obviously has their priorities in order.
At this year’s Golf Industry Show we didn’t have time to hit the fairways, much less time to lay on the beach, but we did spend our time catching up with clients and distributors and welcoming their great feedback and comments on our matting.
About 16,000 people attend the show every year and it is always a lot of fun. We had the opportunity to share some other great things we have done over the past year, including an installation at the site of this years 2011 US Open in Washington D.C.
To thank the many people who stopped by our booth, we giveaway a few rolls of PEM to show our appreciation. Congratulations to Troy Fink from The Country Club of Virginia in Richmond, VA and Steve Vaughn from The Clubs of Kingwood in Kingwood, TX your roll of PEM will be shipped soon.
It’s always great to meet golf professionals from all over the world, and we can’t wait for next February to come. Below are pictures we snapped when we had down time at our booth, we look to next years show.
