Insurance Conference Planner and its sister magazines, which make up The Meetings Group, Primedia Business Magazines & Media, brings readers and Las Vegas suppliers together once a year for the Las Vegas Corporate Invitational Golf, co-sponsored by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. This year's event 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 and edit it into a video that PPE showed at the final award banquet at Caesar's Palace, one of the premier Park Place Entertainment properties. The video was a highlight of the evening.
On Friday morning at Bear's Best, John Fredericks, weatherman for KVBC (the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas), who was playing as a guest, did a live remote weather broadcast from the course.
A Wednesday evening welcome reception at the MGM Grand, the flagship property of MGM/Mirage, gave guests and hosts the chance to get to know one another.
A special thanks to the following sponsors: American Hole In One, Antigua Group, HHG Brands, Alan Waxler Group (which provided meet and greet services), TPC at the Canyons, Bears Best, and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority
