The 2013 Chicago Golf Show returns to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont from February 22-24. Show officials recently announced that the presenting sponsor of the show will be The BMW Championship, which takes place this September at Conway Farms in Lake Forest. The title sponsorship should help increase awareness of the event among local golf fans.
This will be the 30th edition of the Chicago Golf Show, which is the nation’s oldest consumer golf show. In 2012, the Chicago Golf Show attracted 16,700 fans and 187 exhibitors during the three-day weekend event. Event organizers are expecting event better participation in 2013. The BMW Championship will be offering two complimentary practice round tickets to the first 200 people to enter the show each day.
“The Chicago Golf Show is thrilled to welcome the BMW Championship as its exclusive Presenting Sponsor for 2013,” said Tom Corcoran, longtime Chicago Golf Show operator. “The Western Golf Association and the PGA TOUR bring a tradition and prestige to the Chicago Golf Show that we know our attendees will recognize and appreciate.”
“The Chicago Golf Show’s 30-year tradition and ongoing success motivated us at the BMW Championship to deepen our existing relationship with the Show,” said Nik Lapin, BMW Championship Director of Marketing and Ticket Sales. “With the BMW Championship coming to Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest for the first time next September, we think it makes sense to utilize the Chicago Golf Show to showcase the BMW Championship to golf fans of Chicago.”
The Chicago Golf Show is supported by the Illinois PGA and the Illinois Junior Golf Association. Dozens of Illinois PGA professionals will be on hand throughout the show to offer attendees free lessons on the full swing, short game, and putting. Top instructors will also conduct seminars on the Chicago Golf Show Main Stage to help attendees improve their game for the coming golf season.
