THANKS BUT NO THANKS: TWO MORE PULL OUT OF PGA SHOW
Published April 22, 1999
adidas-Salomon's Taylor Made Golf and adidas Golf USA are "pulling out" of the PGA Int'l Golf Show, scheduled for September 28-30 in Las Vegas, according to Erik Bratt of the SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE. The Carlsbad, CA-based companies join a "growing list" of companies that will be absent from the show, including Titleist, Cobra Golf and Tommy Hilfiger. Golf analyst Terry McAndrew, who publishes the newsletter Web Street Golf Report: "I don't think the companies that were there (last year) got their money back in terms of business." But Gail Billingsley, Marketing Dir of Reed Exhibition Co., which bought the show from the PGA of America, "denied the show is in trouble," and said there will "likely be more exhibitors than last year, when 950 exhibitors attended" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 4/21).
