Posted By: Asia Pacific Golf Group at 14 September 2020 | Written By: Mike Sebastian

Delegates signed up for the Inaugural World Golf Expo (WGE) will be treated to a fascinating state-of-the-industry address by one of the most knowledgeable journalists in golf.


Making his way to WGE is Timothy Schmitt, the Managing Editor of GOLFWEEK and the golf coordinator for the USA Today Network. Both publications are owned by Gannett, the largest newspaper publisher in the United States.


I have spent decades in various newsrooms – some print and some broadcast – and what I will be able to share with your delegates will prove to be a fascinating insight to golf today and its pathway into the future against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Schmitt.


Schmitt has been with Gannett since 2015 and under his leadership, Gannett has experienced “incredible pageview growth, including numerous record-breaking months.


It is a rare opportunity for us in Asia to meet and listen to a top-flight editor speak about how the game of golf is evolving and especially so when it is a man who leads one of the most knowledgeable and authoritative publications on golf,” said Mike Sebastian, CEO of the Asia Pacific Golf Group who together with the giant Mission Hill Group of China are the co-presenters of the WGE.


GOLFWEEK founded in 1975 and is world renowned for its coverage of the “Best Golf Courses” in the United States. It also publishes specific annual publications such as Golfweek’s Best, a Guide to America’s Best Classic and Modern Golf Courses and Golfweek’s Ultimate Guide To Golf Course Living and Great Escapes.
