The 8th IAGTO North America Golf Tourism Convention will take place at Pinehurst Resort, North Carolina from 26-29 June 2016.
Over 100 golf tour operators selling North America will attend the Convention with some 25% from the USA & Canada and the remainder
from more than 24 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 from the USA, Canada, Mexico,
Latin America 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 36 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
Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen Area CVB and Visit North Carolina.
Mr Jack Bickart, Vice President of Sales for Pinehurst Resort, said: “We are very excited to be hosting NAC 2016. We are really privileged that it will be coming
to Pinehurst next year. We are extending a warm welcome to all IAGTO members to come and see why Pinehurst is called the St Andrews of North America. We can’t wait
to show everyone the resort, the Pinehurst area and the state of North Carolina.”
