The capital city of Jakarta will welcome Asia’s golf tourism industry when the region’s top golf tourism convention heads to the city on 27th to 30th April for the 4th Asia Golf Tourism Convention (AGTC) 2015 to be held at the Jakarta International Convention Center. Recognized as a dynamic city with fantastic golf courses that offer some of the best hospitality in Asia, Jakarta is considered as the perfect venue for the golf tourism industry’s premier event in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Golf Convention will bring together golf resorts and destinations from across the Asia Pacific region and golf tour operators from all over the world. More than 4000 meetings will take place between golf tour operators and golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels, inbound operators and tourist boards over two days. The AGTC attracts over 500 delegates from 32 countries including some 150 golf tour operators, all selling Asia Pacific golf destinations, from all leading markets.
At the start of the first business day, suppliers will have the opportunity to introduce themselves to all buyers during two hours of speed-dating with buyers. This is followed by 9.5 hours of meetings over two days where golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels and other suppliers can have up to 38 appointments of 15 minutes sessions with buyers/golf tour operators from over 30 countries.
All delegates are invited to enjoy the Welcome Reception and Gala Dinner and can participate in the AGTC Golf Tournament.
Organized by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), AGTC has expanded each year since its inception in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur in 2012. The 2014 event was attended by a record 556 delegates, with over 200 tour operators drawn from 32 countries – an increase of over 30% on previous year’s event in Pattaya, Thailand.
At the unveiling of the 2015 venue, IAGTO’s President, Peter Walton, said “IAGTO carried out the golf tourism strategy for Jakarta in 2011. That was my first visit to the city and I was staggered by the quality of the courses within a short distance of the buzzing capital’s hotels, shopping and entertainment district. All of the courses stood out in terms of their fantastic hospitality, highly trained and multi-lingual caddies, great clubhouses and fantastic restaurants. Jakarta is a wonderfully friendly city and, as Indonesia’s capital, is easily accessible.”
