The 5th IAGTO North America Golf Tourism Convention will take place at the Marco
Island Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa – Marco Island/Naples, Florida from 26-29 June
2013. More than 100 golf tour operators selling North America will attend the Convention
with some 25% from the USA & Canada and the remainder from more than 20 different
countries all with North American golf programs. So if developing your domestic
or international visitor business is important, then this event is not to be missed.
The Convention is open only to golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels, ground handlers
and other golf tourism suppliers in the USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Suppliers
have the opportunity to introduce themselves to all buyers during 2 hours of speed-dating
at the beginning of the first business day. This is followed 8 hours of meetings
over two days where each supplier can have up to 32 appointments of 15 minutes each
with tour operators that they wish to see. The business sessions will be preceded
by an IAGTO Briefing to ensure you get the most out of your meetings and are fully
up to speed with the current state of the market.
The networking-social functions include a Welcome Reception, Dine-Around, Finale
Night and a Golf Tournament over two amazing golf courses courtesy of our hosts
Florida's Paradise Coast: Naples, Marco Island, Everglades and Marco Island
Marriott Beach Resort Golf Club & Spa.
"The 2012 IAGTO North American Conference was a huge success for Puntacana Resort
& Club! Not only did I get a chance to see a lot of our current buyers and solidify
our relationships, but also got a chance to work with some new operators which immediately
resulted in bookings for us this winter. See you all again next year in Marco Island."
