During IGTM, November 11-14, 2013, a number of exhibitors will showcase their commitment to eco and ethical tourism, building on a partnership forged at last year’s show in The Algarve, Portugal, between IAGTO, the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, and the Golf Environment Organization (GEO).
Jonathan Smith, Chief Executive of GEO, said: “Since last year’s announcement, we have already seen an increasing number of golf courses, resorts and destinations adopting new approaches to advance resource efficiency, conserve nature and extend support to communities.
IGTM has also added its commitment to further promote sustainability in golf tourism by supporting the international water aid charity, Just a Drop, by arranging fundraising initiatives throughout this year’s event, adding to the €4,000 already raised from exhibitor donations.
The 16th edition of IGTM will bring together the world’s leading golf tourism suppliers and buyers, as well as media from around the globe for four days of pre-scheduled appointments, networking opportunities and industry updates.
The event will conclude with the IAGTO Awards, sponsored by Etihad Airways, and the new IAGTO Sustainability Awards in conjunction with GEO, where leading golf destinations, golf resorts and suppliers will be honoured.
