Corporate Meetings & Incentives and its sister magazines, which make up The Meetings Group of Primedia Business Magazines & Media, bring readers and Las Vegas suppliers together once a year for the Las Vegas Corporate Invitational Golf. The event is co-sponsored by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. This year's tournament, which was held in late April, included more than 100 corporate meeting executives, third-party planners, and dozens of hotels and services.
The highlights of the event are great golf and networking, and this year attendees had a chance to play scrambles on two of the area's best courses: TPC at the Canyons and Bear's Best. Park Place Entertainment Group hired a film crew to tape the two days of golf; the crew created a video that PPE showed at the final award banquet at Caesar's Palace, one of the premier Park Place Entertainment properties. Everyone loved the film!
Friday morning at Bear's Best, John Fredericks, weatherman of KVBC (the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas), who was playing as a guest, did a live remote weather broadcast from the course.
Wednesday evening, a welcome reception at the MGM Grand, the flagship property of MGM/Mirage, provided guests and hosts the opportunity to get to know one another.
A special thanks to the following sponsors: American Hole 'n One, Antigua Group, HHG Brands, Alan Waxler Group (which provided meet-and-greet services), TPC at the Canyons, Bear's Best, and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
