The Golf Industry Show is renamed

The world’s largest golf course management event has been rebranded. The Golf Industry Show will, from next year, be called the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show. It will next take place in February in San Diego.

The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) says the show will continue to offer a dynamic week of unparalleled education, networking opportunities and access to golf course and facility management solutions for golf industry professionals.

“The GCSAA Conference and Trade Show rebranding is not about changes to the event, but is based on the strength of the GCSAA brand,” GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans said. “As GCSAA’s brand recognition has grown over the years, it makes sense to have our premier event share in that. Along with our partners, we’ll still feature opportunities for collaboration and team building among superintendents, architects, builders and more.”

The GCSAA Conference rebranding is part of a strategic effort to bring all GCSAA entities under the association name and comes on the heels of the rebranding of its philanthropic organisation to the GCSAA Foundation in May.

“As we move closer to our 100th anniversary in 2026, bringing all aspects of GCSAA’s operations under the GCSAA name not only makes sound business sense, but also gives a clear tie to our long history,” Evans said.

The 2022 GCSAA Conference will return to an in-person gathering after the 2021 event was held virtually due to the pandemic. The event will kick off with the GCSAA Golf Championships in February in San Diego and will include play at Torrey Pines, site of the 2021 US Men’s Open.

The conference portion will begin with a ‘Welcome Reception’ on Monday night. The bulk of education and the trade show will be condensed to Tuesday through Thursday in order to offer attendees the full event experience while requiring fewer days away from work and home. In addition, a virtual learning component will be offered after the in-person event for those who want to take additional education or for those who were unable to attend in person.
