The 5th Asia Golf Tourism Convention (AGTC) took place in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from 24-27 April 2016. With 643 delegates from 37 countries, the Convention re-enforced its position as the premier golf travel event in the Asia Pacific region.
More than 4200 pre-scheduled meetings took place between 220 buyers and 155 golf resorts, golf courses, hotels, ground handlers and tourist boards from every golf destination in the Asia Pacific region.
As a direct result of hosting the event, Chiang Mai anticipates a 25% increase in international golf tourism over the coming two years.
AGTC 2016 was a perfect fusion of international commerce and extraordinary Thai hospitality. Delegates were able to enjoy a Welcome Reception, Lanna-style Thai Night, Gala Dinner, Golf Tournament and many other functions, while 143 buyers also participated in post-AGTC fam trips playing 8 different golf courses.
The dates and venue for AGTC 2017 will be announced shortly.
