Last week, Golf Canada held a virtual annual general meeting while the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association held its Canadian Golf Course Management Conference.
This week, the National Golf Course Owners Association of Canada is hosting the virtual Ontario Golf Expo consumer show, after a similar event in British Columbia recently and an upcoming virtual show for the Quebec region.
Needless to say, video conferencing, webinars and virtual events have played an important role in keeping the golf industry connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Will it continue once the pandemic ends?
At that point, social distancing won’t be as much of an issue as it is right now, so the opportunities to meet in person will become more prevalent. On the other hand, a person’s time is often an issue, as is travel due to time and expense, so video connection can come in handy.
It’s not as if meeting via computer is new to people in the golf industry, but has it taken on a new level of importance? Do you see virtual events, webinars and video conferencing being more important in your job once the COVID-19 pandemic ends than they were before the pandemic began?
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
