Among the first sponsors to renew their deal for 2014 was Prairie Band Casino & Resort, which will once again have a major presence at the show as a Supporting Sponsor. In addition to being included in golf show marketing and advertising, the resort is sure to attract consumers with its on-site giveaways, including 250 2-for-1 rounds to its popular Firekeeper Golf Course, as well as 100 free rounds to be given away at its booth.

The Kansas City Golf Show as proved to be a hit with Kansas City-area golfers in each of its first two years, with over 7,000 golfers passing through the doors each weekend. Even an epic snowstorm couldn’t keep the crowds away in 2013, as thousands of eager golfers drove through a foot of snow that fell just 24 hours before doors opened to make the 2013 Kansas City Golf Show a success.
Those attendees enjoyed show-only specials on golf-related products and services, free lessons, try-and-buy opportunities with the year’s hottest new equipment, and a giveaway package that included free golf, golf balls, magazine subscriptions and more.
