Companies that focus on the short game will have a great opportunity to put their putters, clubs and training aids in the hands of members of the media in the new Short Game Demo Experience at the 30th Anniversary ING Spring Conference.

The Short Game Demo Experience and the Long Game Demo Lab will be among the highlights at the 30th Anniversary ING Spring Conference May 31-June 3 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, PA.

The ING Conference is conducted by the non-profit International Network of Golf, “Where Media Connects With The Golf Industry.” Anyone in the golf industry and media is encouraged to become a member and attend the conference.

The ING Short Game Demo Experience will take place on Tuesday morning June 2 at Blue Bell Country Club. Blue Bell features a state-of-the-art short game practice facility designed by ING member Ron Garl. It is comprised of four green complexes, two bunkers and a practice diamond. Each green complex has been designed to handle specific shots, allowing you to practice bump and run, chip, lob, pitch, and bunker shots.

Attendees, including dozens of golf writers, broadcasters, editors and Social Influencers from media outlets will have the opportunity to test the latest putters, wedges, training aids and instruction during the Short Game Demo Experience. The Long Game Demo Lab, featuring companies with woods, irons and training aids will take place Monday at Raven’s Claw Golf Club.
