Tenerife has been selected as the host venue for the next International Golf Travel Market, to be held on the island from October 5th-8th 2015.
The event is the world’s most important meeting for the golf travel industry and each year brings together over 1,000 delegates and hundreds of media from all over the world.
Tenerife’s Magma Arte & Congresos, an avant-garde conference centre located in Costa Adeje and with a capacity of up to 2,500 delegates, will be the “epicentre” of the event.
Carlos Alonso, president of the Tenerife Island Government, said: “With this important announcement, Tenerife is now firmly established as a leading destination for European golfers.
“Not only will it be a great privilege for us to host the next IGTM but this will also be an unrivalled opportunity for Tenerife to showcase itself as a winter and summer golf destination to the industry.”
Over the years, Tenerife has positioned itself as an all-year-round golf destination.
Its second-to-none golf courses plus its annual temperatures of 23 degrees have helped the island become a clear favourite for European golfers.
As an example, many competitions on the PGA European Tour and the Ladies European Tour take place in Tenerife every year.
This is why the Tenerife Tourism Corporation has a specific brand, called “Tenerife Golf”, devoted to promote the island’s golf offer around the world.
Tenerife features a total of eight golf courses plus one on the neighbouring island of La Gomera – all very different, with their own character and flanked by Tenerife’s breathtaking mountain and coastal vistas.
