The PGA Golf Show is requiring individual unique email addresses for attendees, exhibiting personnel and media.
The reasons for this are:
- Using a unique email address will allow each PGA Show badge holder to utilize and customize the online show planner and the show’s mobile app.
- All attendees will be able to receive timely PGA Show information and communications.
- Finally, the use of unique email addresses will help us in identifying non-qualified attendees.

Digital media applicants must meet certain guidelines that demonstrate that they are posting regular, quality content about the golf industry. PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions will determine the qualifying frequency of those posts.
