These prices are only good through November first before they go up to $625, so get your booth reserved now to get in on the savings.
A big thank you to all of the exhibitors and attendees that made the 2012 Hard Rock Casino Tulsa Golf Expo a huge success! That's why we're returning to the fantastic Hard Rock Casino in Catoosa to put on the best golf expo yet.
The Hard Rock Casino Oklahoma Golf Expo will be held Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1 and 2, in the fully carpeted and exquisitely decorated ballrooms at the Hard Rock Casino 12 minutes from downtown Tulsa.
In addition to the thousands of folks who regularly attend the Expo, the Hard Rock attracts more than 11,000 folks on a weekend, so we advise locking up your booths early, as this has the potential to be easily the best attended expo yet.
The Hard Rock Casino has extended a special room rate to our exhibitors as well. More details soon.
Space is limited, so don’t be left out. Download a copy of our contract which includes a copy of the floor plan and other information, including sponsor info if you would like to be promoted in all of our marketing for the event.
