2019 PGA Show Demo Day Welcome Letter

Welcome to the 17th Demo Day at the PGA Merchandise Show!

A quick look at the numbers paints an impressive picture of the size and scope of PGA Show Demo Day. The world’s biggest outdoor demo day includes thousands of attendees utilizing more than 200 hitting bays and five practice greens across 42 acres of space – and more than 100,000 golf shots are likely to be struck at Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge during the day.

Big numbers, to be sure, but PGA Show Demo Day has become something much bigger than simply a chance to see the latest products from more than 100 of the game’s leading brands. This one-of-a-kind event is a chance to network with your golf industry peers, learn more about the game from some of the sport’s greatest teachers, and make the most of your PGA Merchandise Show experience.

A number of big names from the world of golf and other sports will be on hand throughout the day, showcasing their skills in a fun environment. PGA Show Demo Day also provides an outstanding opportunity for golf instructors to learn from some of the game’s brightest minds. PGA Professionals Mark Blackburn and Mike Malaska will be joined by experts like David Donatucci, Lance Gill, Sean Hogan and Brett Meyer for a series of instructional workshops throughout the day, and PGA Professionals attending the instructional workshops can receive one MSR credit for each session they attend. If you teach golf for a living, this year’s PGA Show Demo Day could have a major impact on your business throughout 2019.

PGA Golf Exhibitions and PGA Magazine would like to thank all the staff and sponsors who make this one of the most fun and productive days in golf. PGA Show Demo Day is presented by AfterShokz, Fujikura, Insane Impact, Toptracer, ToughLie 360, Wittek Golf and Yamaha Golf-Car Company. In addition, we also thank our exclusive product sponsors: FlightScope (Official Registration Tent Partner), Pride Sports (Official Tee Partner), Pukka (Official Headwear Partner), and Under Armour (Official Apparel Partner). And, of course, special thanks to everyone at Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge for their contributions to making PGA Show Demo Day the premier event of its kind.

We sincerely hope PGA Show Demo Day is part of an outstanding experience for you in Orlando, which will continue with the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show, which runs from Wednesday, Jan. 23, through Friday, Jan. 25.

Have a great time at PGA Show Demo Day!
