Do you have a golf radio show, podcast or TV show? Then ING has a tremendous opportunity for you to meet new prospects for interviews and partnerships.
Media Row returns this year as part of golf’s most unique networking session, the ING One-On-One Appointment Show at the 28th Annual ING Spring Conference May 20-23 at the IP Casino Resort & Spa in Biloxi, MS,
The non-profit International Network of Golf, the industry’s only media-based networking organization, conducts this annual gathering of media and golf companies and leaders. ING is “where the media and golf industry connect.”
Anyone in the golf industry and media is invited to join ING and attend the conference. Call 407-328-0500 for details.
Media Row consists of golf shows that receive a display table in the very popular ING One-On-One Appointment Show. Shows set up their recording equipment at the table, and every 15 minutes a new company representative comes to the table to be interviewed for a feature that will be used during a future airing of the show. It is also a chance to meet prospective partners and sponsors.
There is space for up to six shows in this year’s Media Row. The first show to claim a spot is the Myrtle Beach Golf Channel, produced by iNet Golf. Interviews will be streamed live on the TV channel during the One-On-One Appointment Show.
Nearly everyone at the conference can benefit from participation in the ING One-On-One Appointment Show, which will be held on Tuesday at this year’s conference. It was created to place an emphasis on business relations between the media and golf companies, resorts, destinations and entrepreneurs.
Another key element of the conference for exhibiting companies is the Demo Lab on Monday morning at Shell Landing Golf Club. Companies with golf equipment and training aids set up on the range and putting green where attendees try the products first hand.
- EDUCATION: Sessions include Marketing & PR, Social Media Marketing and more.
- GOLF: The World Amateur Golfers Championship, USA National Qualifier will take place Monday on the Davis Love-designed Shell Landing Golf Club.
