2019 PGA Merchandise Show Recap
Posted on February 07 2019
Golftini had another successful PGA Merchandise Show, debuting the new collection in Orlando, Florida from January 23rd-25th.
This was the company's 15th show! It was here at the PGA Show many years ago where Golftini transformed from a concept into a business. This pivotal moment occurred when Owner and Designer, Susan Hess, got her first wholesale order from the PGA Superstore in 2004. Susan only had a few weeks to deliver, quickly learning how to execute the operation.
The PGA Show provides so much more than the opportunity to showcase the new Golftini Collection. It is the only time during the year when the entire Golftini team (Headquarters and Sales Reps) comes together in one place. Seasoned reps reconnect and new reps are warmly welcomed into the Golftini family at the annual team meeting on Tuesday before the show starts. This is also where in-person group discussion is had and input is given, ensuring the team is on the same page, listening to one another, and adjusting to customer needs around the globe.

Once the show began, the team kicked it into high gear! Appointments were booked solid throughout each day, introducing newcomers to the line, and refreshing returning customers with the latest styles, sizes, colors, and more!

The PGA Show continues to be a place which fosters connection. Golftini Owner and Designer says, "having the chance to see most returning customers and meet so many new people within a three day time period reminds us why we do what we do. It's the inspirational people and meaningful connections which keep us going strong year after year!"
