(Valencia, Spain – November 16, 2010) International Golf Travel Market (IGTM), the world’s premier global event for golf tourism suppliers, buyers and media, opens its doors to exhibitors, visitors and dignitaries today, November 16, 2010
The event takes place at the Feria Valencia Convention and Exhibition Centre in Valencia, on Spain’s east coast, and expects to welcome more than 1,400 golf tourism professionals from 65 countries, for three days of pre-scheduled appointments, networking opportunities and industry updates.
The annual IGTM Golf Tournament preceded the official opening on Monday November 15, and was hosted at a variety of high quality Valencia courses including El Saler, Olivia Nova, Foressos and El Bosque.
This was followed by the IGTM 2010 Welcome Reception which took place at ‘The City of Arts and Sciences’, hosted by Comunitat Valenciana, this year’s host region.
Group Exhibitions Director for Reed Travel Exhibitions, Mark Walsh, said: “This year’s event is the biggest and best to date, proving that our strategy for creating the right environment to conduct high quality meetings, is proving successful.”
Scheduled appointments, briefings and networking events are top of the agenda at this year’s IGTM, with more than 500 golf tourism suppliers, over 300 pre-qualified buyers and up to 100 international press expected to attend.
“The scheduled appointment system, at which buyers and suppliers meet and do business, is the key business feature of IGTM,” continued Mark Walsh.
“There are also plenty of opportunities, both formal and informal throughout the event, for networking and business development. Given the high level of interest from buyers to date, we hope that this year’s IGTM will help sustain high levels of activity within the international golf travel industry.”
