The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America’s (GCSAA) 2001 International Golf Course Conference and Show in Dallas has received a top 100 ranking by ‘TradeShow Week’. Each year the publication reports the top 200 trade shows in the United States and the GCSAA event was ranked No. 94.
The Tradeshow Week 200 is a year-long process of compiling and analysing data on more than 4,700 shows in the United States and Canada. The rankings are determined by net square footage of exhibit space, number of exhibiting firms and professional attendance.
As the largest trade show in the golf course management industry, GCSAA’s trade show has risen in the rankings for the past several years. The ranking for the 2002 show in Orlando will not be available until spring 2003.
“This is an outstanding accomplishment for the staff and exhibitors of the GCSAA Conference and Show,” said GCSAA president Michael Wallace, CGCS. “It shows how dedicated our membership is to becoming educated and staying current. The hard work and effort by everyone involved is rightfully recognized.”
Since 1926, GCSAA has been the leading professional association for the men and women who manage and maintain golf facilities in the United States and worldwide. From its headquarters in Lawrence, Kansas, the association provides education, information and representation to more than 21,000 individual members in more than 65 countries.
