After three years of COVID interrupted attempts, the International Network of Golf is finally headed to Valley Forge.
The ING Spring Forum is set for May 30-June 2, 2023 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King Of Prussia, PA. The announcement was made last week from the ING Hospitality Room at the PGA Show in Orlando. Anyone in the golf industry or media is invited to attend this one-of-a-kind, media-focused event.
The not-for-profit, 33-year-old International Network of Golf will conduct this gathering of golf media and business executives. The ING Spring Forum format is a reimagined, more intimate structure than previous ING Conferences, but the purpose remains the same: Networking, product introduction, information sharing, education, golf and general memory making.
“We’re so excited to welcome the ING to the Valley Forge Casino Resort in Valley Forge & Montgomery County, PA,” said Mike Bowman, President & CEO for the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board. “Montco truly is a must-see golf destination with 50 courses and 300,000 yards to play, so we’re proud to be added to the list of distinguished places this event has been held. We also can’t wait to highlight the Valley Forge Casino, as well as showcase all that Montgomery County has to offer from 81 hotels and 1,800 restaurants and Montco Makers (breweries, wineries, and distilleries).”
Attendance will be limited to approximately 40 people, including six sponsoring companies who will have the opportunity to conduct a 20-minute exclusive presentation to the entire audience. These sponsors will have industry segment exclusivity, and will also have the opportunity to display product at other times during the Spring Forum.
The remainder of the schedule will consist of marketing seminars, industry roundtable discussions, golf tournaments and networking, plus some excellent dining.
Registration fee is as little as $150, and sponsorship fees start at $695.
Valley Forge Casino Resort is located near the Valley Forge National Historical Park. It features a 40,000-square-foot gaming floor, plus 100,000 square feet of meeting, conference, and banquet facilities, and two luxury hotel towers. There are eight dining options, live entertainment, and an exciting nightlife scene. The hotel is offering a very special rate of $109 per room per night. Reservation information can be found on the entry form links below.
Best known as the encampment site of General Washington and his Continental troops in the winter of 1777-78, Valley Forge and Montgomery County is now home to the beautiful 3,500-acre Valley Forge National Historical Park.
But there’s even more for visitors to experience. The area features a vibrant arts and culture scene, awesome outdoor adventures, 53 golf courses, world-class shopping (including the King of Prussia Mall & historic main streets), many historic sites, and tons of family-friendly attractions (such as Legoland and the Elmwood Park Zoo).
