MGCOA’s Golf Business Conference – Amway Grand Plaza; Dec. 2 – 4, 2013

Golf Business Conference: Come for Change!

Michigan’s premier education program for golf business comes to the

Amway Grand in December

y Kate Moore, Executive Director, MGCOA

Is it time to change? The Michigan Golf Business Conference is for anyone in our industry from operators, golf professionals, superintendent, owners, golf marketers, you name it.

Two powerhouse keynote speakers will challenge us to think it just might be. Opening the Michigan Golf Business Conference and Vendor Fair this December is a national marketing icon Mike Veeck. Veeck will challenge us to put fun back in the workplace because “when fun is good… performance is better.” This simple approach can bring out the best in your employees and keep customers coming back for more. Following Veeck are two days filled with education on marketing, player development, legal issues, website optimization, tips from superintendents, property tax issues and more. Chief capitol correspondent Tim Skubick will enlighten and entertain us on everything political, and we will round out the conference with a closing keynote from the leader in golf development strategies, Jim Baugh.

The Michigan Golf Business Conference begins with a Pure Michigan reception on Monday, December 2 at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel. Tuesday experience “The Power to Change Yourself” with Mike Veeck sandwiched between education sessions, the Vendor Fair exhibits and concluding with a Town Hall style reception and entertainment featuring Tim Skubick.

Wake up Wednesday morning to MIGCSA’s Adam Ikamas who, along with Debbie Swartz, will teach us a thing or two about “why the superintendent does that.” Then more education, a fantastic luncheon banquet and the PGA and Golf 20/20 expert Jim Baugh’s “The Power to Change Your Industry.”   

Conference pricing is very affordable so multiple participants from your golf course or facility can attend. For more information and to register, please visit
