New Golf Event to Raise Funds for Exhibition Industry Research at IMEX America

CEIR Golf Tournament

Prior to this year’s IMEX America trade show — taking place Oct. 14-16 in Las Vegas — the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) will host the first annual CEIR Golf Classic to raise money for exhibition industry research, it announced yesterday.

“CEIR’s golf tournaments have evolved based on the positive feedback that we have received in the past, and we are elated to work with IMEX to offer this wonderful complement to the portfolio of opportunities to continue to raise funds for CEIR research,” CEIR President and CEO Brian Casey said in a statement.

CEIR regularly hosts golf tournaments in support of its research projects. Scheduled for Oct. 13 at the Rio Secco Golf Club in Henderson, Nev., the CEIR Golf Classic will host both buyers and sellers from the travel, tourism, meetings, conventions and hospitality industries, combining networking, fundraising and sport.

“We are delighted to partner with CEIR for the first time this year at IMEX America,” said IMEX Group CEO Carina Bauer. “This golf tournament delivers another new element … and gives participants a great opportunity to network in a very special setting, at the same time as benefiting the industry.”
