IAGTO is proud to be staging Japan’s first ever national golf tourism event in the Mie Prefecture from 1-3 October 2018. The venue for the Japan Golf Tourism Convention is the iconic Shima Kanko Hotel The Classic which played host to the G7 Summit of world leaders in 2016.
Mie Prefecture is leading the way in golf tourism to Japan by inviting golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels and other golf tourism suppliers from across the country to Mie in order to meet with approximately 60 international golf tour operators from all of Japan’s most important markets.
All tour operators participating in the inaugural JGTC will be invited to experience the Mie Prefecture’s wonderful golf, cultural and touristic offering for 3 days prior to the Convention itself. The JGTC will comprise a special Golf Tournament and a full day of pre-scheduled meetings between buyers and suppliers. After the Convention, golf tour operators will be invited to visit different golf destinations throughout Japan on official Post-JGTC Fam Tours.
