PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Dec. 14, 2021) – The PGA of America and PGA Golf Exhibitions announce the schedule of educational programming for the annual PGA Show Education Conference, simultaneous to the 2022 PGA Show, Jan. 25-28 in Orlando, Florida. The Conference, focusing on teaching and coaching, executive management and operations tracks, plus golf retail sessions, features significantly less overlap with exhibit floor hours and post-show virtual access to allow PGA Professionals and golf buyers more time with exhibitors and their peers. Education Conference details, and early-registration savings through Jan. 11, are available at PGAShow.com.
The 69th edition of the PGA Show, the largest gathering of PGA Members and the international golf industry, will reunite the golf community in person for the first time since January 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The PGA Show will follow all health and safety standards, based on CDC guidelines, local public health guidance and host venue protocols to support a safe and comfortable experience. Thousands of PGA Professionals and industry executives will test the newest innovations of more than 600 golf brands while learning current business solutions through education, industry presentations and peer networking.
The 2022 PGA Show Education Conference will offer a full day of educational programming on Jan. 25, with four hands-on instructional workshops during the PGA Show Demo & Fitting Day at Orange County National Golf Center and nine classroom sessions focused on executive management and golf operations at the Orange County Convention Center.
On the opening day of PGA Show exhibits, Jan. 26, the PGA of America and the National Golf Course Owners Association will present two special sessions for owners and PGA Professionals. The Jan. 27 education schedule will see golf retail sessions by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM), additional education sessions by the PGA of America and exhibitor education sessions by Tagmarshal and Technogym. Jan. 28 sessions by the AGM and PGA will conclude by 12:30 p.m. Most PGA Show Education Conference sessions also will be virtually available to registered conference attendees following the event.
