PGA buying show set for next two days

TaylorMade will once again be at the PGA of Sask. merchandise show.

The PGA of Saskatchewan is once again getting set to host their annual buying show and awards gala this week.

The two-day event will take place at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon. Golf professionals, proshop managers, and equipment representatives and retailers will all convene on Oct. 29 and 30 under one roof. The event has been a fixture on the Saskatchewan golf calendar for over three decades according to PGA of Saskatchewan Executive Director Ken Morrow. Last year prior to the event he said the merchandise show was developed as a way to get everyone together in one place rather than have different companies travelling across the province.

TaylorMade Golf rep for Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Lakehead region, Mike Langin will be attending his third event in Saskatchewan. He said having a booth at the show is important to his company and golf in the province as a whole.

“The show is important to attend to show support for the zone that supports us as well. It’s a key relationship to provide our professionals and accounts with many vendors to prepare both parties for the following season,” Langin said.

Paige Lawrence, the adidas Golf Territory Marketing Manager for Saskatchewan and Manitoba will also be among the 25 exhibitors at the show. She said attending is a must for her brand.

“The show is vital in bringing our zone together. It’s great to be able to connect with customers and have industry leaders all in one place celebrating the accomplishments of our peers” Lawrence added.

The PGA of Saskatchewan will have their annual general meeting at the event as well. Tuesday night they will hand out their awards for the 2019 season. To see the award nominees click here.

Over 120 people have registered for the event from 50 different facilities across Saskatchewan.
