On 24-26 February 2023, The Bigger Ball exhibited at Bunkered Live - the UK’s biggest golf show at the NEC in Birmingham. As it was our first trade show, we were excited to display new products, meet new people and see what the weekend had in store.
Over the course of the 3 days, The Bigger Ball Team were hard at work talking to golfers, event owners, course managers and many more, introducing the brand, a selection of our products and team with great success. We had put a lot of time and effort into the stand design and making sure we were fully prepared for all conversations and looking the best we could.
One of the highlights of the show was demonstrating to clubs our personalised Bamboo golf tees, custom wooden Bag tags and other customisable products. It’s an exciting time in the Golf industry with an increasing number of clubs looking more closely at sustainability, but unsure of the products that exist. Having the chance to demonstrate and discuss sustainable golf products in person with the right individuals was extremely valuable for us and has opened a lot of doors. We are still continuing conversations a month on, and still having people reaching out with positive feedback and orders for their clubs.
In addition to showcasing our own products, we were also able to learn from others in the industry and gain valuable insights into the latest trends and innovations. Talking to existing partners and building new future relations is exciting for The Bigger Ball.
Over the course of the weekend we ran a competition to guess the number of golf tees inside a giant golf tee which we collected at our local course. The competition attracted lots of interest with the prize being a year's supply of golf tees! The QR code was constantly being scanned with the total number of entries and guesses spanning a wide spectrum! The actual number was 507 and one guess was bang on with many within + / - 10 of the correct answer.
