The next Asia Golf Tourism Convention will take place in Miyazaki, Japan, from 15-17 March 2022. IAGTO and the Miyazaki Government are committed to not only showcasing Miyazaki and Japan to international golf tour operators but also to deliver a much-needed in-person Asia-specific event post-Covid.
All business sessions will take place at the Seagaia Convention Center with buyers hosted at the adjacent Sheraton Grande Ocean Resort. The Phoenix Seagaia Resort, where AGTC will take place, is only 20-minutes from Miyazaki Airport and Miyazaki City is located between the airport and the resort. There are 10 terrific golf courses to be discovered within a 30-minute drive.
AGTC provides the opportunity for IAGTO member golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels, and other golf tourism suppliers from across the Asia Pacific region and further afield to meet with IAGTO golf tour operators from around the world, with some 70% of buyers attending from Asian markets.
The two days of Convention activities include 13 hours of one-to-one meetings organized between buyers and suppliers, along with great networking opportunities including the Welcome Reception, Business Lunches, Social Evenings, Golf Tourism Seminars, and the Golf Tournament.
IAGTO Chief Executive Peter Walton said: “In the months ahead we will continue to closely track the course of and, hopefully, recovery from, Covid-19 around the globe and we will implement all necessary precautions that may still be required next year.”
