What a great show! First we would like to thank all of the dealers new and familiar that stopped by our booth last week at the PGA Merchandise show in Orlando. This show is a huge event and always a great success. There is always so much excitement in the air at the convention center before during and right after the event. We hope that you stayed up to date with most of the action as we posted numerous pictures and updates on our Twitter & Facebook pages if you missed it please feel free to follow and subscribe so you won’t miss anything when we attend the Golf Industry Show (GIS) next month in San Antonio, TX.
Day one was a whirlwind of activity after the opening ceremony and the traditional bagpiper procession our booth was flooded with consumers and dealers a like checking out our new products such as our new three point seat belt harness, LED light kits for the EZGO RXV, Yamaha Drive, and Club Car Precedent, KC LED Light Bar, and many more. As always also we also had a lot of people trying their luck at our Putt-for-Prizes game! When we did have a few moments to catch our breath and look around we did get to briefly check out some of the other booths with the new product and it all looked very interesting. Some items worth noting: the Garia Carbon Fiber body golf cart that was selling for $87,000, the new Yamaha A.C. Drive and all the new innovative products such as the golf cart sun visor, the magnetic enclosure, and the stay dry score card cover.
Day two had just as much excitement but started a little slower but right before lunch our booth was crowded again. It seems like we meet with more international dealers then we usually see at the PGA show but were very happy with the positive comments from our new products. It was also interesting to see a demonstration of the new GolfBoard which is basically a remote 4 wheeled skateboard that holds your golf bag. After seeing the demonstrator almost wipeout twice I think the golf cart industry is still safe for a while.
The final day was a short day but was also an interesting day as well. As you may know when we attended the PGA West show in 2013 in Las Vegas, NV and Marilyn was interviewed for a documentary “A Dangerous Game” by Anthony Baxter well this year Marilyn was interviewed for a spot for a GolfTV segment which should air in a few weeks. We will keep you posted as they should have it available on YouTube as well.
It was a very long week and it was great to see new dealers, and new products and if you have never been to a PGA Merchandise show I urge you to clear your calendar for next year and don’t worry about the tickets we can provide you with those if you would like to attend.
