Renate Roeleveld – How to get more Women in to Golf

Robert Fiegl – Insights in Pricing Strategy
And after all the good input we miss one important factor: the pricing! Many golf courses use simple discounting as their best pricing-strategy. Robert Fiegl could not disagree more. He will share his insights he has built up both in his years as CEO of the Austrian Golf Federation, as golf course owner and as sales director in his earlier career. And he will send you home with great pricing strategies that do work! A presentation that is the closing must for this years conference.
