The PGA of British Columbia is pleased to announce that the 2022 Buying Show will make its return to the Richmond Olympic Oval, October 12-13 after a two-year hiatus.

Since 2013, the Buying Show has featured industry exhibitors showcasing an array of products, including equipment, apparel, carts, accessories, golf balls, footwear, training aids, software, sunglasses, signage, and storage solutions, to name a few. The Buying Show serves as a one-stop-shop for all facilities in British Columbia.
