The Irish Golf Expo 2017

Ireland’s largest Golf Show comes to CityWest in Dublin on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th February 2017 when the Irish Golf Expo rolls into town! There are over 10,000 fanatical golfers expected to attend and based on previous Expos there could be even more than that at CityWest on the last weekend of February next year.

The move to Dublin from up North has been welcomed as approximately half of the 410 golf courses in Ireland (yes, that many!) are based in and around the greater Dublin area. This gives your golf club, resort or business the ideal opportunity to connect with and showcase your products & services to a very captive audience indeed! I would recommend booking early to make sure you get your exhibition space and to also take advantage of the robust marketing campaign for the Event, both online and in print!
