AGTC 2023 launched Miyazaki as a truly international golf destination and provided an essential platform for Asia’s golf tourism revival! The first AGTC since 2019 took place in the Japanese prefecture of Miyazaki on the southernmost island of Kyushu, from 14-16 March 2023, during which the cherry blossoms began to bloom in the warm spring sunshine.
320 delegates participated in the event, including 130 golf tour operators from 25 countries (67% from Asian markets, with 33% from Europe, Australasia and North America), all selling golf vacations to golf destinations across the Asia Pacific.
The unexpectedly high turnout brought relief and excitement in equal measure from the participating delegates, who benefited from three days packed with meetings and functions and a terrific golf tournament.
Thanks to Miyazaki Prefecture, the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), the Japan Golf Tourism Association (JGTA) and Sega Sammy, owners of the outstanding Phoenix Seegaia Resort where the convention took place.”
AGTC 2024 will take place from 12-14 March 2024, with the venue to be announced shortly.
