International Golf Travel Market to compete with GCMA conference

International Golf Travel Market (IGTM), the global event for golf tourism suppliers, buyers and media, is going head to head with the Golf Club Managers’ Association (GCMA) conference at Hinckley Island Hotel, Leicestershire, next month.

Both events start on November 14, with IGTM, in Belek, Antalya, Turkey, ending a day after the GCMA conference, on November 17,

The IGTM’s unique pre-arranged appointment system will enable 300 golf tour operators and 500 exhibitors (golf destinations and resorts) to meet and do business.

“Belek has proved itself to be a dynamic, high quality golf travel destination that has captured the imagination and the market for international golf tourism,” said Reed Travel Exhibitions’ Peter Grimster, who has recently been promoted to the role of exhibition manager.

“With an important strategic position, it is ideally located between Europe and Asia, which is why we are attracting the highest ever number of Asian buyers and exhibitors, including exhibitors from China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and India.”

IGTM’s pre-arranged appointment system enables tour operators and exhibitors to book meetings in advance and optimise their time during the exhibition.

Belek is close to the cosmopolitan city of Antalya on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast and just 30 kilometres from the city’s international airport. It is one of the fastest growing and most successful golf destinations in the world and boasts 15 world-class golf venues, featuring signature designed golf courses by Sir Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie, among others. There is also a wealth of high-quality hotels and an excellent range of leisure facilities in the region, along with plenty of tourist attractions, history and culture to explore.
