Costa Daurada, Spain, to host International Golf Travel Market 20132 min read


Posted on: 15th Nov 2012

(Algarve, Portugal – November 15, 2012) The 2013 International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) will be hosted on the Costa Daurada, Spain’s ‘Golden Coast’.

Organised by Reed Travel Exhibitions, the world’s premier global event for golf tourism suppliers, buyers and media will take place November 11-14, 2013, at one of Europe’s most vibrant new golfing destinations, LUMINE Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community.

Located one hour south of Barcelona and just 15 minutes from Barcelona Reus airport, the Costa Daurada region will showcase its 240 kilometers of sandy beaches, quiet villages and stunning countryside, as well as its cultural and historic attractions, first-class culinary offering and, of course, its luxurious golf and leisure resorts.

Calle Carlsson, General Manager of LUMINE Golf & Beach Club, part of the LUMINE Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community, said: “The IGTM represents a unique opportunity for the Costa Daurada region to develop strategic business relationships whilst showcasing the product to an engaged audience. It is vital for the region to demonstrate how its diverse product already attracts golfers from established markets, but also how the on-the-ground expertise, quality of product and service as well as the commitment to facilitating the business process will encourage operator partners to send its clientele to the region.

With an array of golf courses designed by such noted architects, including Robert Trent Jones Jr, and golfing greats, such as Greg Norman, Jose Maria Olazábal and Bernhard Langer, the Golden Coast has all the ingredients to establish itself among Europe’s leading golf destinations.

The region’s first golf course, Costa Daurada Golf Club, opened in 1983, setting the scene for a further seven venues, including one of the main players in this pocket of Spain, the Bonmont Terres Noves Golf Club and the latest addition to the region’s golfing portfolio, the critically acclaimed LUMINE Golf & Beach Club, managed by international experts, Troon Golf.

“Spain has been a popular venue for IGTM over the years, however this will be the first time it will be held in the North Eastern region of the country,” commented Peter Grimster, Exhibition Manager of IGTM.

“Over the past couple of years, Costa Daurada has embarked on a focused drive to establish Spain’s ‘Golden Coast’ as an emerging golf destination, as, we believe, it has the potential of becoming one of Europe’s premier golfing hubs.”

IGTM will take place from November 11-14, 2013.
