The annual PGA Merchandise Show takes place next week (January 22-24, 2020) in Orlando, Florida. The team from Mohawk will be onsite, and we want to meet with you!
Actually, we're attending in two capacities. First, as part of our day jobs, two of us are members of the media, writing for several publications. We’ll be at the show, reporting on many of the exciting new products and industry announcements.
For my part, I’ll be focusing on how technology is impacting the golf industry. Given that the Mohawk is 3D printed, we obviously think additive manufacturing has the potential to change how golf products are conceived, produced and sold. I’ll be talking with some of the industry’s biggest players to get their views on how 3D printing might change their product development, manufacturing and supply chains. Beyond that, I’ll also be looking at how other emerging technologies, including robotics, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) might impact how we learn, improve and play the game.
Dustin will take a different angle. As a U.S. Army veteran, he often writes about affairs that affect that community. Like many other industries, golf has the potential to benefit from the knowledge and experience of those with prior military service. He’ll be interested in seeing how the golf industry is engaging with vets and will be talking with people from across the landscape to gain insight on how they’re leveraging their valuable skills. He'll also be looking at how companies are marketing to veterans and tapping into our nation's military pride.
In addition, we’ll be introducing the Mohawk 3D golf aligner and sharing how our unique business model can benefit players, professionals, courses, and the companies that support them. With the help of 3D printing, our products are produced “on-demand” and Made in the USA. This provides us with a key speed-to-market advantage that others typically can’t match. Not only does that make it easier to incorporate customer feedback, but it also easily enables customization and personalization for brands, resorts, and events.
