This year the PGA of Alberta is host to the largest Buying Show for golf operators in Canada. The event brings golf managers and vendors together in one place, creating a one-stop-shop for all golf course needs. The Buying Show will take place on October 22nd from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, October 23rd from 8:00 am to 7:30 pm, and October 24th from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at the BMO Centre in Calgary. By moving the show to this venue in the heart of the city, attendees will have better access to hotels, transportation, restaurants, entertainment, etc., all within walking distance from the venue, helping make for a better overall experience.

Preparation is key

Make sure that you come to the buying show well prepared. If you’re not yet using a cloud-based inventory management software, you’ll need to update your inventory count before you go to the event so you know how much to order. You’ll also need to bring whatever manual system you’re using to record purchases.

If you’re already using an advanced inventory management software, make sure that you bring a tablet with you so that you can check your inventory levels at the event and fill purchase orders automatically as you buy new products. This will both ensure that you’re buying just the right amount of items and also that you won’t have to go back through the orders as they arrive at your facility to update your inventory.

Before the show, you should read all of the rules and regulations, including the dress code. Its imperative that you dress professionally, you’ll be meeting plenty of influential people in the industry and it's essential to give a great first impression. This event is a great way to build business relationships and dressing the part is critical.
