Golf Forum Final Programme of Speakers

The final programme for Golf Tourism Scotland's ‘Gimme Five’ Forum on Tuesday 6th July at Murrayshall House Hotel & Golf Courses in Perth has been announced.

Why come along?

Anyone running a business needs to think ahead and to an extent crystal ball gaze into the future to determine what moves to make to survive and thrive. It is even more difficult when the pressure is on you and you alone! GTS have put together an array of speakers from different parts of the tourism market and briefed them to speak on what the next five years holds for their sub-sector. By collating this knowledge you should be better able to make important decisions for the future of your business.

Who is speaking?

The morning will feature speakers from the Public Sector: Eddie Brogan (Scottish Enterprise), Malcolm Roughead (VisitScotland) and two from membership organisations – Andy Salmon (Scottish Golf Union) and Lee Derrick (GTS).

The afternoon will feature those from the private sector representing four different sub-sectors of the golf tourism industry: Seamus Coen (Macdonald Hotels) talking about the accommodation situation; Max Hare (Golf Scotland) providing an insight into the European golf market; Ken Gill (Today’s Golfer) giving us an indication of how the media see things and, finally, Kevin Lewis from Machrihanish Dunes giving us the golf course perspective.

To get this breadth of knowledge in one place on one day is unique. You can be the real beneficiary, but only if you take part!

Who should attend?

Staff, managers, directors or owners of golf businesses should not miss this event there will be something in it for everyone. It is ideal for anyone involved in the business of GOLF. Importantly, you don’t have to be a GTS member to attend.
When is it being held?

Tuesday 6th July. Registration starts at 9.30am, with the Forum proper starting at 10.30. The morning finishes with a buffet lunch at 1.00, while the afternoon session closes at 4.15pm.
