Making The Most Out Of The PGA of Canada Atlantic Merchandise Show

Posted by Philip Ednie on October 31, 2018

 General Information

This year, the PGA of Canada Atlantic Merchandise Show will be hosted at the Casino New-Brunswick in Moncton. The venue is conveniently located just off the Trans Canada highway only 10 minutes from the Moncton airport. The Merchandise Show will take place on November 6th from 9:30 am - 6:00 pm, November 7th from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, and November 8th from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm. The organizers have reserved a block of rooms in the casino’s hotel to accommodate attendees. However, given the popularity of the location, there are a limited number of rooms available so we recommend you book as soon as possible. If no rooms are available, there are a number of hotels nearby that can satisfy your needs. Make sure you read the rules and regulations before attending the show.

 

 More Than a Merchandise Show

Attending the PGA of Canada Atlantic Merchandise Show isn’t just about walking from one booth to the other. In recent years, the organizers have added an education session as an added value. Taking place from 9:30 am - 2:00 pm on Tuesday November 6, this session represents an excellent opportunity for you to learn. On that same day at 6:00 pm, a welcome reception will be held to show appreciation for members. This will be a great opportunity to mingle and discuss the newly acquired knowledge from the education session.

Info Session V2

On Wednesday November 7, the PGA of Canada Atlantic Awards and Hall of Fame Gala will be held to highlight excellence in the industry. For all the mentioned segments, it’s imperative that you give a good first impression as you will be meeting some of the most influential individuals in the region. To help you do so, you should dress to impress and have a few questions top of mind to fuel the conversation.

Exploring The Booths

While the side activities are useful to network and build relationships, the exhibitor booths is where business gets done. Before leaving for the show, we recommend that you sit down with your team and take note of your exact needs. Doing so will ensure that you spend your time efficiently. Don’t waste time navigating through the various booths and focus on the exhibitors that have the potential of solving your issues.

Also, as it is a buying show, you’ll need an updated inventory count. If your club does not use a cloud-based management software, have your inventory printed-out and take note of your purchases to update your system once the three days are over. On the other hand, if you do use cloud technology, bring your tablet to have an up-to-date inventory count and process purchase orders as the event progresses. This will mitigate the risk of losing data and make your interaction with exhibitors more dynamic.
