Today's Grand Idea
EVERYONE LOVES BLING!
IAGTO (International Association of Golf Tour Operators) is the global trade organization for the golf tourism industry. The 6th IAGTO North America Golf Tourism Convention took place at the historic Mills House Hotel and Charleston Convention Center, Charleston, SC 6/8-11/14. Over 100 golf tour operators selling North America attended the Convention with some 25% from the USA & Canada and the remainder from more than 20 different countries all with North American golf programs. This was a DO NOT MISS event for those developing domestic or international visitor business.
The Convention was open only to golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels, ground handlers and other golf tourism suppliers in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. Suppliers had the opportunity to introduce themselves to all buyers during 2 hours of "power-networking" at the beginning of the first business day. This was followed by 8 hours of meetings over two days whereby each supplier could have up to 36 appointments @ 15 minutes each with tour operators they prefer to see. The business sessions were preceded by an IAGTO briefing to ensure all attendees got fully up to speed with the current state of the golf 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 Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
