What is B2B?
Business to Business
I don’t care so much about the PGA show, but I’d sure like to get into the ShotShow.
Does the PGA show have Booth Babes? If so I take back what I just said.
If the demand is there, 1st week all business, 2nd week public invited.
ABSOLUTELY NOT. Its busy enough as it is. 25-50% of the pros & distributors wouldnt go if public was allowed. Its not the point of the show.
That being said, you can find a way to go. A private club I used to work at sends a board member every year. Lots of random media ppl there too. You could start a website for $10, then pay the $170 or whatever for the badge and go as media.
If the manufacturers set up hitting areas, it could be the ultimate demo weekend. Many manufacturers sell directly to the public now. I'd pay to go to it, but I'm a gear guy, love seeing and trying new stuff.
... Tradeshows in general are dying. Very costly to vendors
The problem is the companies are down there with the intent on selling 30 drivers to one pro shop not one driver to a guy doing an 8 hour demo session. These companies bring in all their sales reps with the intent of setting up their accounts shop orders for the season and to be trained on new product.
