Industry Prepares for GIS

Many in the turf industry are preparing to attend the next week's Golf Industry Show (GIS), held this year in San Diego, California. The Golf Industry Show is an innovative trade show designed for the owners/operators of golf facilities, and the professional members of the golf course and club management industries. Featuring the largest exhibit floor in the industry, the event combines education, networking and solutions for golf course superintendents, owners/operators, general managers, chief operating officers, architects and builders.

The Golf Industry Show is presented by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) and the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA), along with supporting organizations, the Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA), the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA), the National Golf Foundation (NGF) and the United States Golf Association (USGA).

This year the GCSAA Education Conference is offering nineteen new seminar titles to the many selections addressing the challenges faced on the course and off. In all there are over one hundred classes offered at this year's event.

If you are attending the GIS and would like to schedule a consultation or simply would like more information on IGM and the professional golf course services offered, please contact the IGM Business Development Office at 800-413-5500 or on the web at The only way to know if our services are right for you and your operation is to ask.
