Forum aims high for 2018

The wheels are in motion for the 2018 Golf Business Forum.

After the success of the inaugural event in 2016 in Melbourne, organisers Guy Chapple and Andrew Davies have this week launched the sponsorship prospectus for what shapes as an even bigger second edition.

"We want to make sure that the content delivers not just tools and strategies integral to the success of those at the coalface of Aussie golf, but also some inspiration and conversation," Davies said.

"We all need a bit of positive thinking and delegates from last year have told us they came away full of ideas and energy for what lay ahead.

"We will be launching the 2018 themes and keynote speakers later this year and will be offering restricted early-bird rates to our registered contacts at the same time.

"We would encourage everyone to sign up for updates at so they don't miss out."

A golf business event initially developed to deliver education and networking for managers and owners from the public golf sphere, the inaugural event attracted all comers including member-based clubs, vendors and local councils along with national and international industry heavyweights.

"We'll be in a position to announce the broad agenda (for 2018) in the next few months," Davies said.

"The pressure is on to deliver, but we've got some exciting ideas and with the support of our key sponsors we’ll be delivering a bigger and better event."
