“Costante Group has done exceptional work for GCSAA during the past few years! Don’s team was especially innovative, flexible and collaborative when we had to shift from an in-person to virtual conference due to COVID in 2021. ‘LIVE from GCSAA Headquarters” in January 2021 was created and delivered to our members flawlessly and professionally. We received universally positive feedback from our members as well as others in the golf industry due to the Constante Group’s unwavering commitment to excellence. It is a pleasure working with such an outstanding team!”

The Golf Industry Show is an industry-leading trade show and conference for education, equipment and networking for golf course management professionals.  Attendees include golf course superintendents, owners/operators, builders, architects, general managers, chief operating officers, equipment manufacturers, appraisers and distributors.  Along with the trade show, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) annual education conference provides attendees with over 35,000 hours of education.

OUR ROLE

The GCSAA selected Costante Group to provide creative and production services for the Golf Industry Show where several premier events accompany the conference and show.

Costante Group was charged to add dynamic elements, engage the audience with an amazing experience driving them to return next year.

This included scripting, storyboarding, technical writing, music selection, art direction, voice-over, music licensing and graphics.
