Golf Industry Show to Las Vegas in 2012,
CMAA to leave partnership

Las Vegas has been selected as the site of the 2012 Golf Industry Show as announced today by show partners.

The dates of the show will be Wednesday, Feb. 29, and Thursday, March 1, while presenting partners the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) Education Conference and the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) Education Conference will be conducted February 27-28 and March 2. The Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA), the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA), the National Golf Foundation (NGF) and the United States Golf Association (USGA) are participating partners in the event.

In related news, the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) notified Golf Industry Show partners this week that it is leaving the partnership after the 2010 show in San Diego, which will be held Feb. 10-11. The 2011 show will be conducted in Orlando, Fla.

In a joint statement, GCSAA, NGCOA, GCBAA, ASCGA, NGF and USGA noted their solidarity for the Golf Industry Show, support of the site selection process and enthusiasm for Las Vegas: “We are excited to be heading to Las Vegas. The city has been identified as a desirable venue for the event by attendees and the exhibitors. We are firmly committed to the show and the process we’ve followed to make it a world-class event. We would be remiss if we did not express our appreciation to the CMAA for partnering to create the Golf Industry Show and collaborating to develop it into a key event for the golf industry. All the Golf Industry Show partners will continue to work with the CMAA on initiatives that make the game stronger."

The partners also expressed enthusiasm for the 2010 Golf Industry Show in San Diego: "It is a highly regarded location, plus attendees are keen on searching out education, programs, services, products and technologies that will give them and their facilities the edge. The feedback we’ve received is 'times are tough, but the Golf Industry Show offers a great means to combat that challenge.'"

The Golf Industry Show is an innovative trade show designed for the owners/operators of golf facilities and the professional members of the golf course and club management industries. The event combines education, networking and solutions for golf course superintendents, owners, operators, club managers, chief operating officers, architects and builders. The Golf Industry Show is continually ranked by Tradeshow Week magazine as among the top 100 trade shows nationally (out of the more than 3,500 conducted every year).
