As a Presenting Sponsor, your company will receive the highest level of recognition, with a chance to receive more than 5 million impressions throughout the course of the show promotional campaign, which includes TV, radio, outdoor billboards, newspaper, direct mail, website, email and social media. The Presenting Sponsorship offers outstanding visibility among a highly motivated and affluent audience.
The Chicago Golf Show® Main Stage is the focal point for instruction and entertainment and a pivotal element of our event’s success. Located prominently on the show floor, the Main Stage is where Chicago area golfers get tips and trade secrets from top PGA pros and golf celebrities. In 2015, sixteen presentations were held at the Main Stage over three days.
Recent Main Stage guests have included major winners Lee Trevino (CGS 2015), Craig Stadler (CGS 2012), Lanny Wadkins (CGS 2013), Jeff Sluman (CGS 2014) and John Daly, as well as All-Pro Kicker Robbie Gould of the Chicago Bears (CGS 2014).
A perennial favorite for attendees! The Longest Putt area is a high-traffic area and dramatic venue to feature your company. Each year, more than 4000 contestants attempt to sink the 70-foot putt while large crowds gather around to watch the excitement. The Longest Putt contest and area is the perfect opportunity to introduce captive consumers to your product or service. The Longest Putt area also provides high visibility for a company banner that can be seen from most locations inside the Show.
Thousands of attendees line up to try out the latest golf equipment and clubs at the Chicago Golf Show®’s Demo Days. Representatives from participating golf club manufacturers, including Callaway, Cleveland/Srixon, Mizuno USA, TaylorMade and Tour Edge, staff the giant 4,000 square foot hitting area, offering tips and answering questions as attendees test the latest clubs. Demo Days is a great opportunity for retailers to meet thousands of consumers in the market for new golf equipment and offer a promotional coupon to drive traffic back to stores.
