Registration open for PGA International Conference


The third PGA of Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I) International Conference will once again return to Thailand’s Laguna Phuket.

“Laguna Phuket has been a wonderful host in the past two years and we’re delighted to be going back this year,” said Robert Maxfield, Chief Executive of the PGA, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF).

To be held from November 10-13, the event will comprise a variety of education seminars with expert speakers providing engaging sessions on topics designed to assist delegates in their business and career.

“This event provides PGA Members and golf industry executives from across the world with an educational platform to share their thoughts and learn from some of the most respected peers in the golf industry,” said Maxfield.

In 2018, delegates from 16 countries attended the conference, sharing experiences with like-minded people.

Paul Wilson, Assistant Vice President/Group Golf Director of Laguna Golf, said: “We are glad to be the host venue for the PGA International Conference for the third year running. We’re always pleased to welcome PGA Members and industry executives from around the world to our integrated destination resort.

“It has been a pleasure working with the PGA since the signing of our branded golf academy, and we look forward to working together with the association even more closely in the years to come.”

For the first time, the Asian Golf Industry Federation will be a Supporting Partner at the conference.

Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “This event has quickly become among the most important annual golfing gatherings in Asia.
“Given the make-up of the delegates, it makes perfect sense to return to the home of the first PGA-branded facility in Thailand and one of Asia’s finest fully-integrated resorts.”

World-renowned bio-mechanics expert and putting coach Dr Paul Hurrion has been confirmed to deliver his popular ‘Putting Bio-mechanics’ seminar on the Coaching Masterclass programme.

Matthew Davies, the PGA’s Regional Manager (Overseas), said: “We’re delighted to return to Phuket and are working hard to deliver another fantastic event for our Members. We are designing a programme of events which will hopefully appeal to all of our Members and will continue to release details of our speakers over the coming months’.

Delegates who book before 30th June can also take advantage of the EXTENDED early bird $100 F&B credit offer.
