Club La Costa on the international golf map
Club La Costa at the IGTM
Billed as the world’s leading golf travel gathering, the 13th International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) was held at the Valencia Convention and Exhibition Centre this year.
The event brings together golf operators, airlines, specialist travel and holiday companies such as Club La Costa, as well as the international golf and travel press to discuss market trends and innovations, develop joint ventures and promote the industry to over 50 million holiday golfers worldwide.
Club La Costa Resorts & Hotels was represented at the 2010 IGTM for the first time, and the timing could not have been more important given that the new Club La Costa Kusadasi Golf & Spa resort in Turkey is scheduled to open in two years’ time, in 2012.
Club La Costa Product Development Director Lucien Le Moing said,
“Because Club La Costa is developing the first golf resort in Kusadasi, this was our opportunity to introduce ourselves to the hotel and golf industry in general and more specifically to the Turkish market. Club La Costa will be offering a pioneering alternative to golf on Turkey’s Antalya coast and at this IGTM we were able to gauge the reaction to the planned opening of our Club La Costa Kusadasi Golf & Spa resort, which was very positive as both operators and consumers can now see a revolutionary new golfing region emerging in the country.”
Visitors to the Club La Costa stand included representatives of the press, tour operators, golf agencies and hoteliers, many of whom showed huge interest in the prospect of future partnerships with the Club La Costa Kusadasi Golf & Spa resort project.
The event was attended by over 1400 trade representatives, who included exhibitors, buyers, registered golf tour operators, press and media.
IGTM 2011 will be held in Antalya, Turkey. For more details, go to www.igtm.co.uk
