We have been busy for the last week getting ready for the Vancouver Golf & Travel Show partly for some of our clients who will have booths at the show and partly for ourselves as we will be launching Go Play Golf the iPhone app at the show this weekend.
In the past the Vancouver Golf & Travel Show has taken place in February at BC Place. In recent years it had become the Vancouver Golf & Outdoor Adventure show featuring mountain biking, camping, boating etc. The Outdoor adventure side of the show was growing while the golf side had gotten smaller year after year. In 2010 there was no golf show due to something called the 2010 Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
New and Improved
This year the Vancouver Golf & Travel Show (note the loss of Outdoor Adventure and reintroduction of Travel which in our opinion is a better fit with the golfing crowd) will take place March 19th and 20th at the new Vancouver Convention Center. We have been to several other shows and the new venue is terrific! The show will take place from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
Tickets for adults are $12 and juniors are $5. With the purchase of each entry ticket each adult will be given a free round of golf at select golf courses. There will be 70 plus booths on the golf side of the show which is shaping up to truly be “new and improved”. If you want to come by and say hello we can be found at booths #144 and #146 handing out free promo codes for the Go Play Golf iPhone app, helping to promote memberships in the BC Golf House and selling the NGCOA’s Golfer’s Redbook. We hope to see you there!
