This week, Málaga is hosting the European Golf Industry Conference, bringing together nearly a hundred international professionals and decision-makers in the golf sector. Organized by the Continental Golf Courses Association and in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport, this conference is a unique opportunity to showcase the golf offerings of the destination and present complementary cultural and gastronomic proposals to industry suppliers, course owners, developers, and companies.

The conference will delve into the future of the golf industry, exploring topics such as sustainability, promotion, personnel, training, and the latest trends and developments in European and global golf. In addition to knowledge sharing, the event provides a platform for networking and creating business opportunities.

The European Golf Courses Association (GCAE) brings together associations from 14 European countries and specialized companies managing over 1,200 golf courses, representing around 40% of the continent’s golf offerings. This collaborative effort encompasses countries such as the UK, Germany, France, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, and Spain.

Furthermore, this initiative aligns with the promotional efforts of Andalusian golf, as demonstrated by the recent participation in the Golf Messe fair in Zurich and the upcoming presence at the Danish Golf Show in Herning. Notably, Andalusia also made a strong impression at the PGA Show in the US, further solidifying the region’s position as a key market for this niche segment.

Overall, the European Golf Industry Conference in Málaga presents a compelling opportunity for industry leaders to come together, exchange ideas, and pave the way for the future of golf in Europe. It’s a meeting of minds and a celebration of the vibrant golf landscape in the region.
