For the second time in seven years, the International Network of Golf will conduct its ING Spring Conference in Atlantic City, NJ, next June.
Resorts Casino Hotel will serve as host to the 24th Annual ING Spring Conference, set for June 1-4, 2014. The announcement was made at the recently completed 23rd ING Spring Conference at Reunion Resort at a luncheon sponsored by Greater Atlantic City Golf Association.
Atlantic City hosted the successful 2008 ING Spring Conference, and local golf executives were excited to bring the ING meeting back to the area.
“Atlantic City has quickly become one of the premier golf destinations in the nation, boasting more than 20 pristine golf courses, including ours, the famed Atlantic City Country Club,” said Charles Fahy, General Manager for the Atlantic City Country Club, which is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment. ACCC will host one of the three days of golf activity during the conference.
“Hosting a high-profile group such as the ING Spring Conference for the second time is an honor and we look forward to showing them why the golf experience in-and-around our resort destination is one of the finest in the nation,” added Fahy.
Resorts Casino Hotel will serve as the official headquarters of the conference, hosting all of the educational sessions and most of the meal and networking elements of the meeting. It was the first casino hotel to open in Atlantic City, back in 1978. It has since undergone a major renovation, including the addition of the spectacular Margaritaville entertainment complex, which opened over Memorial Day Weekend.

Resorts Casino Hotel is situated on 11 acres of land with approximately 310 feet of Boardwalk frontage overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Resorts offers guests 942 hotel rooms and suites in two hotel towers: the oceanfront 15-story Ocean Tower, and the magnificent showpiece, the new $125 million, 27-story luxury Rendezvous Tower, which will provide the ING accommodations.
The 99,951-square foot casino at Resorts Casino Hotel features non-stop excitement and action 24 hours a day at more than 80 table games and more than 2,500 slot machines.
In addition to the casino and hotel facilities, Resorts includes a 1,350-seat showroom, a 300-seat theater, six restaurants, two VIP slot and table player lounges, an indoor-outdoor swimming pool, Boogie Nights dance club, two lounges, a salon, a health club and spa and retail shops. Resorts also offers approximately 39,000 square feet of convention facilities, including seven meeting rooms and a 13,000 square foot ballroom.
“Our attendees are going to love the exciting atmosphere of Resorts,” said ING Executive Director Mike Jamison. “The meeting space is spacious and beautiful, and the new Margaritaville will provide the perfect space for our nightly activities in ClubING.”
The golf course rotation is yet to be determined but included will be the aforementioned Atlantic City Country Club and Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, host to the LPGA Tour’s ShopRite Classic, which will end on the Sunday that ING begins, if the LPGA schedule remains the same as this year.
“That is one of the reasons that we moved the dates into June,” said Jamison. “ING media members will be able to secure credentials to cover the final round, and we hope to play the Donald Ross-designed Bay Course in he days following the LPGA tournament.”
The ING schedule is being tweaked by the ING Conference Assistance Committee, headed by Tiss Dahan of Ariat International. The ever-popular One-On-One Appointment Show will stick with its expansion to a two-day event. The schedule will also include the Demo Lab, several educational sessions that can be customized to the various attendees, golf competitions and the popular networking sessions.
