The International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) has revealed that 2015’s premier global event for golf tourism suppliers and media will be hosted in one of Britain’s favourite timeshare destinations – the island of Tenerife.
The Spanish island will welcome IGTM 2015 to the Magma Conference Centre in glamorous Costa Adeje on October 5-8 next year.
The Magma Conference Centre, opened by the King and Queen of Spain in November 2005, is conveniently based just 10 miles from Tenerife South Airport.
The exciting centre features a unique design that interprets a volcanic eruption, meaning it will provide one of IGTM’s most spectacular venues ever.
Tenerife is one of Europe’s most popular golfing destinations and boasts nine different golf courses. With an average annual temperature of 23C, it also provides the ideal climate for golfers.
Carlos Alonso, President of the Tenerife Government (Cabildo), said: “Golf tourism plays a fundamental part in attracting international visitors to the island.
“By hosting IGTM, we have an unrivalled opportunity to showcase our world class golf resorts to tour operators, as well as to enhance the island’s reputation globally as an established and diverse golfing destination.”
Peter Grimster, IGTM Exhibition Manager, added: “While climate, accessibility and having an appropriate venue is key to staging an event of this stature, one of the deciding factors behind bringing IGTM to Tenerife has been the united front displayed by all the stakeholders involved.
“More than 20 of the island’s four and five-star hotels, as well as nine golf courses and the impressive Magma Conference Centre have fully collaborated with regional government to demonstrate that Tenerife is not only ready to host IGTM but that the island as a whole is a world class destination for golfers and tourists to visit.”
Leading timeshare developers including CLC World, Diamond Resorts International, Regency Resorts and Silverpoint have a number of resorts in South Tenerife, with no less than five golf courses within a 15 minute drive.
