Asia Golf Tourism Convention returns after three-year gap

Thursday, 23 Mar, 2023 0

The annual Asia Golf Tourism Convention (AGTC) returned after a three-year Covid break.

AGTC 2023 took place in the Japanese prefecture of Miyazaki on the island of Kyushu over six days in March.

It was the 9th annual staging of the event, which is organised by International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

It attracted 320 delegates, with 130 golf tour operators from 25 countries, all selling golf trips in or to destinations across Asia.

Through hosting AGTC, Miyazaki showcased seven of its 26 golf courses during the first three days of the event.

“With its year-round, golf-friendly climate, Miyazaki is already well known to the domestic and Korean markets, but has now positioned itself as an international golf destination,” said IAGTO CEO Peter Walton

“With Japanese delegates representing one third of supplier delegates, Japan has a great opportunity to become a bucket-list golf destination.”

AGTC 2024 will take place from 12-14 March next year, with the venue to be announced shortly.
