APGS 2017 – All Set To Light Up!
The world spotlight this week is on the nation of Vietnam as it prepares to host the 21-nation APEC Conference and the 2017 Asia Pacific Golf Summit (APGS)– two stellar international events that will be staged back to back in the city of Da Nang starting this week.
APEC will showcase world leaders of the calibre of US President Donald Trump, China’s President Xi Jinping, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Japan’s Shinzo Abe while APGS 2017 will roll out some of golf’s most powerful and disruptive entrepreneurs like Robert Parsons, the multi-billionaire founder and chairman of the game-changing brand PXG, Zach Shor, chief operating officer of Topgolf International and Tenniel Chu, vice-chairman of the Mission Hills Group, the world’s largest golf resort and the PGA of America, one of the industry’s titans.
APGS 2017 will host more than 20 international speakers who will address a range of topics covering the future of golf clubs, the importance of re-inventing the product to be more relevant to changing times, new standards in club service and embracing new technologies to market and grow the golf club industry.
“Looking at the programme structure, it is very apparent that APGS 2017 is not addressing the same old tired topics but is instead laying special focus on changes and solutions to help make our industry more dynamic in the rapidly changing times that all of us operate in,” observed Gregg Patterson, the globally renowned guru on club management.
Under the banner of a future-driven theme entitled NEW DIRECTIONS, APGS 2017 will be staged from November 14 – 16 at the Sheraton Da Nang Resort, the city’s newest hotel.
More than 200 delegates representing over 20 countries will be attending the Summit. One of the highlights of APGS 2017 will be the 2017 Asian Golf Awards, the “Oscars” of the Asia Pacific golf and club industry. This year will witness award winners in 51 award categories, the biggest in the eighteen-year history of the recognition event.
APGS 2017 is owned and produced by the Asia Pacific Golf Group and sponsored by the Hanoi-based BRG Group.
