The inaugural Golf Industry Show, which combines the GCSAA and the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) trade shows, will be conducted Feb. 10-12, 2005 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., and will represent the full spectrum of golf facility management and golf business. The Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) will become associated with the event in 2007 in Anaheim, Calif.

While the trade shows of the two organizations will be combined to form a new industry event, each will retain autonomous education conferences that will run concurrently with the Golf Industry Show. The objective is to present an industry trade show that represents significant aspects of a golf operation – from ownership, feasibility and design, construction and operations.

The trade show will feature a new floor layout and will be highlighted by seven solution centers providing the latest industry technology, communication and education. Each solution center will provide unparalleled networking opportunities, educational sessions, demonstrations, access to experts in that area, and exhibits related to the particular solution center. Among other things, attendees will get to see t he building of an actual golf course green, a driving range, putting green and chipping surface, an electric vehicle test track, and a full-scale pump station demonstration.
