PortAventura hosts IGTM, the world’s largest golf tourism fair
From 11th to 14th November PortAventura Convention Centre hosted IGTM 2013, the world’s largest golf tourism trade fair. The industry event, the most prolific worldwide, was organised by Reed Exhibitions and the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO).
It was attended by more than 1,500 visitors and over 500 exhibitors who offered their services and products to all participants during the 4 days that it was held. An exhibition dedicated to the world of golf, in which professionals in the sport as well as the international trade press were able to network with entrepreneurs within the sector. An ideal opportunity to promote, strengthen business ties and get to know new emerging destinations.
The two, completely filled, floors of PortAventura Convention Centre were the meeting point for professionals coming from 60 countries. The convention centre located on the Costa Daurada, one hour South of Barcelona, has once again shown its multipurpose nature, hosting a fair of this kind, which this year has encouraged business-to-business among its attendees.
PortAventura also offered official accommodation to professionals from all over the world in two of its four hotels, Hotel PortAventura and Hotel Gold River. The theme park, more specifically the Far West area, was the scene of a huge celebration organised by the IAGTO, the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, brightening the day with a fun private party and exclusive opening of attractions.
PortAventura Convention Centre, as the venue which hosted the IGTM 2013 exhibition, was the ideal location thanks to its infrastructure and latest technology to carry out such important events.
