As always, we like to bring you the best from the London Golf Show each year and this time we were especially flattered that TSG were asked to the Press Junket by the organisers.

London Golf Show – Beef Johnston…

And were given the chance to meet and interview the main man right now Beef Johnston – so another feather in the TSG cap!

European Tour star Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston won his first  event in 2016 – the Spanish Open but also he won a host of new fans at this year’s show.

Having arrived at 1pm for his interview, Beef stayed way longer than anyone anticipated, staying until gone 6pm.

He spent much of his time having the obligatory ‘selfie’ with both exhibitors and visitors to the show but all with a smile on his face – this guy is the real thing!

The 27-year-old, Beef Johnston, who is based at North Middlesex Golf Club, found time to be interviewed by us, as well as holding a question-and-answer session with a dozen or so golf journalists.

Commenting on his first visit to the show he said: “It’s great to see the enthusiasm of the youngsters here…you want to get as many kids involved as possible – if there are no kids coming through, then there is no future for golf.”

“They’re the most important thing, you need them to play and to develop, and they’ll fill up all the golf courses around. They’ll then get their kids involved and that’s the cycle you need. And shows like this help to get them enthusiastic about the sport and keep them interested.”

When asked why you wanted to come along to Bluewater he said “I’m just having fun here; it’s nice having fun and meeting new people. It’s great to be able to send people home with a smile on their face – that’s important to me. I love watching the golf trick-shot boys.”

“I always go home and try to hit those shots and I can’t … I can’t hit one on the volley! They’re amazing and really cool. I’ve enjoyed the whole show.”

During his visit, the Spanish Open champion also faced a series of questions on the event’s stage from youngsters who had participated in a pre-show online campaign.

One asked him if he knew how many tees he could hold in his impressive beard and the affable Londoner even allowed them to try to find out.

He wasn’t planning on going home to better the result, although he laughed: “I think I’ll wait until next year and maybe I’ll come back and we’ll have a really good go at it.”

London Golf Show – Beef Johnston – What they said about him…

beef-johnston-thesocialgolfer-com-4The organisers of the show were thrilled with his input…”Beef Johnston was incredibly generous with his time, signing autographs, posing for pictures – with stand-holders as well as visitors – and generally helping people enjoy themselves.”

“There aren’t many top sports people you can imagine who would allow kids to insert golf tees into their beard! He is such a refreshing change from the norm and his personality is a shot in the arm from which golf can only benefit!” said Simon Jones – Events Director

Visitors at the London Golf Show

The Golf Show Group Limited, organisers of the London and Manchester Golf Shows, are delighted to announce dates for their 2014 London Golf Show along with a brand new venue.

New London Golf Show venue…

The 10th Annual London Golf Show will be from the 14-16 November at Glow, at the heart of Bluewater, Europe’s leading retail and leisure destination, which attracts 27 million visitors a year.

Bluewater was chosen over several well-established exhibition venues due to its great access by car, combined with free parking and regular trains to and from central London .

This will provide our exhibitors and visitors with easy and convenient access to the venue and the show.

What they said …

Glow has been on the radar for a number of years now and their team have worked hard to be able to provide us with the necessary platform to hold what will be a great landmark in the history of our business, the 10th Annual London Golf Show. For the first time at a London Show we can now offer all visitors the opportunity to park for free when they attend the show which in the London & South East area is a difficult thing to achieve. We look forward to working closely with the Glow events team to put on a great show which meets the needs of all of our exhibitors and provides visitors with a great golfing experience.“said Damian Benstead – MD of The Golf Show Group 

We are delighted to be hosting the London Golf Show for its 10th ever show. The Golf Show Group’s selection of Glow over other venues highlights the growing awareness of Glow as the ideal location for organisers seeking the perfect combination of a high quality, flexible space, free parking and excellent accessibility from throughout the South East. Glow’s integration with Bluewater, Europe’s leading retail and leisure destination, also means non-golfers can enjoy the experience too.“said Michael Watton – Venue Director at Glow

Promoting the show to local golfers …

The London Golf Show will benefit from a dedicated package of marketing measures from Glow, across a range of platforms online, social media, print, venue banners and third party promotions.

This further demonstrates great commitment by Glow who will form a key role in the marketing and promotion of the London Golf Show to millions of their visitors.

Visitors to The London Golf Show 2014 will also be able to enjoy Glow’s unparalleled choice of refreshments with over 55 of Bluewater’s bars, cafes and restaurants all in close proximity to the venue and its own dedicated dining Plaza right outside.
