Since 2005, the Western Sponsorship Congress® has provided professional development and networking opportunities that have focused on a range of sponsorship related topics from inventory development, prospecting, branding, designing proposals, technology, communications, case studies and insights from properties and corporate sponsors.

A roundtable symposium on sport tourism trending topics is the prequel to an indoor social event with a golf theme (but with very little actual golf). It’s all the things you love about golf without the hassle of dragging around your clubs or searching for a lost ball in the rough. Each ‘hole’ will offer games, contests and prizes, plus the 19th hole features drinks, dinner, and plenty of networking.
