The 2nd Asia Golf Tourism Convention (AGTC) will take place in Pattaya, Thailand from Monday 29 April to Thursday 2 May 2013 at the Royal Cliff Hotel. You can register now to attend by selecting the Registration option above.
Last year in Kuala Lumpur, 426 delegates from 46 countries attended IAGTO's inaugural AGTC and more than 4000 meetings took place between golf tour operators and golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels, inbound operators and tourist boards.
We expect over 150 golf tour operators, all selling golf Asia Pacific golf destinations, to attend the 2013 AGTC in Pattaya. You can view a list of buyers and suppliers who attended the inaugural event on this site, and we expect even more delegates in 2013.
IAGTO's President, Peter Walton, said "The response from buyers and suppliers who attended the first AGTC in Malaysia has been fantastic and we have every reason to believe that even more business will be conducted at our next event in Pattaya."
Suppliers have the opportunity introduce themselves to all buyers during 2 hours of speed-dating at the beginning of the first business day. This is followed 9.5 hours of meetings over two days where golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels and other suppliers can have up to 38 appointments of 15 minutes each with tour operators that they wish to see.
There are also seminars on the golf tourism industry and presentations on golf destinations along with some fantastic functions courtesy of our hosts the Pattaya City Hall, Tourism Authority of Thailand, Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau, Chonburi Province, East Coast Golf Association and the Royal Cliff Hotel Group.
