    CHARLESTON PROGRAM: "Kiawah Island Golf Resort 2.0" 
    From laying the bricks to hitting the sticks, nationally top-rated Kiawah Island Golf Resort (KIGR) has launched Kiawah 2.0,  a series of major projects to further enhance the property’s world-class amenities ahead of the 2021 PGA Championship. Join SMPS Palmetto on April 26th in Charleston as we welcome from KIGR both Bryan Hunter, Director of Public Relations, and Norm Engard, Director of Resort Development, for an A/E/C "insiders" sneak peek into the three-year initiative. From a 150-room luxury beachfront hotel to a new clubhouse, state-of-the-art conference center, chapel, and more, the future is looking bright for world-class resort with far-reaching impacts for hospitality design, development and construction in the Lowcountry.
