World Golf Expo – WGE 2021 – The Big Bounce Back!

Posted By: Asia Pacific Golf Group at 2 April 2020 | Written By: Mike Sebastian

The Inaugural World Golf Expo (WGE) has been calibrated to get the golf industry back on the pathway to recovery.

Like all industries, the golf industry has been hammered on all fronts. Tournaments, professional and amateur alike have been postponed or cancelled totally. Golf clubs have been forced into lockdowns. Golfers have been “quarantined” in the sense that they have not been able to enjoy playing the beautiful game. All this mayhem caused by a tiny microscopic microbe called the Coronavirus. The biggest setback to life in modern times!

Against a backdrop of doom and gloom, WGE has been created and programmed to get the battered industry back on track and humming again. After the havoc created by the global virus attack, the time is right for the “Dawn Of A New Era” which is the theme of WGE. Purposefully structured to kick-start the industry and to get it back on a set of bold and new footings.

WGE realises that virtually every industry on the Planet will be forced to operate off new paradigms and this couldn’t have come at a better time for golf. The industry is ready for new ideas to pick itself up and embark on changes that are going to be epic in terms of spurring on the industry towards new heights.

WGE will be staged in a purpose-built home in Haikou, Hainan which will be its hub going forward. It will be staged at Mission Hills Golf Resort which is the world’s largest golf resort. It is a world-class venue – a one-of-a-kind facility complete with ten great golf courses, five-star hotels, convention centre, entertainment, shopping and dining. The event dates are March 15 – 19, 2021.

Mission Hills Haikou is a one-stop complex with no match anywhere.

In the coming months, WGE will unravel an exciting package of top international speakers and a programme specially crafted to look at the new pathway for golf especially in the Asia Pacific. In the meantime, the brand-new website for WGE is now “live” and open for viewing at

WGE will be the biggest and most comprehensive knowledge event and trade show for both the golf industry and consumers alike.
