At the unveiling of the 2015 venue, IAGTO’s President, Peter Walton, said “IAGTO carried out the golf tourism strategy for Jakarta in 2011. That was my first visit to the city and I was staggered by the quality of the courses within a short distance of the buzzing capital’s hotels, shopping and entertainment district. All of the courses stood out in terms of their fantastic hospitality, highly trained and multi-lingual caddies, great clubhouses and fantastic restaurants. Jakarta is a wonderfully friendly city and, as Indonesia’s capital, is easily accessible.”
At the beginning of the first business day, suppliers have the opportunity to introduce themselves to all buyers during two hours of speed-dating with buyers. 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 with golf tour operators from over 30 countries.
