Golf Industry Show Welcomes Club Managers Association Of America
With the focus on providing comprehensive business solutions for golf facilities, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) and the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) announce that the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) will join them in presenting the Golf Industry Show.
The inaugural Golf Industry Show, which combines the GCSAA and NGCOA trade shows, will be conducted Feb. 10-12, 2005, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. The CMAA will become associated with the event in 2007 in Anaheim, Calif., after conducting its 2005 World Conference on Club Management and Exposition, Feb. 27 - March 3, in New Orleans and its 2006 gathering in Honolulu.
"We have spent years of cooperative dialogue with our allied associations and we are delighted to move forward with this initiative," CMAA CEO Jim Singerling, CCM, CEC said. "The Golf Industry Show is truly an initiative whose time has come. By collaborating with GCSAA and NGCOA, we embrace a new experience for our respective members, industry partners and vendors. "
While the trade shows of the three 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.
"Since the initial announcement of the Golf Industry Show in February 2003, the interest of the industry and of the respective GCSAA and NGCOA memberships has grown exponentially, GCSAA CEO Steve Mona, CAE said. "The feedback we have received in bringing the organizations together has been positive. I expect the addition of the CMAA will only elevate that interest."
