HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (September 15, 2022) Dunlop Sports Americas® announced today plans to return to the PGA Show in Orlando, FL., Jan. 24-27, 2023.
Debuting their new global brand structure for the first time on the Orlando showroom floor, Dunlop Sports Americas plans to highlight their international scope and freshly united family of golf brands at the 2023 PGA Show. The Show will serve as a critical opportunity to display how revamped branding under the Dunlop umbrella has coalesced and magnified the moment of the growing Srixon, Cleveland Golf, XXIO, and ASICS platforms.
As a longstanding anchor in the Equipment Hall of the global golf industry’s annual PGA Show, Srixon/Cleveland Golf/XXIO/ASICS will engage thousands of PGA Professionals and golf retailers across multiple exhibit, demonstration, and product testing areas inside the Orange County Convention Center. Their equipment will also be on display and available for use at the hitting bays and the short game practice facilities of the annual PGA Show Demo & Fitting Day at Orange County National Golf Center.
“We are excited to return to the PGA Show in 2023 to show support for the PGA of America and the thousands of PGA Professionals who help make the business of golf what is it today,” said Mike Powell, President and COO of Dunlop Sports Americas. “All of our staff looks forward to showcasing our brands in person, while highlighting the new and exciting things we have planned for the upcoming year.”

During the 2023 PGA Show, Srixon/Cleveland Golf/XXIO/ASICS will again host a PGA Assistants Reception to foster networking and professional development among the next generation of PGA Professionals.
