Over the course of three days, close to 1,500 people gather from across the country and around the world, for a look at what's new and exciting in the golf industry.

The Buying Show is an event that is restricted to Members of the PGA of Canada, Non PGA of Canada Golf Facilities and Golf Industry Equipment Manufacturers.

Registration Packages are sent out in May to all equipment manufacturers who have exhibited at the show in previous years, and to companies who have made requests to exhibit at this year's show.
