Buyers at IGTM

IGTM enables senior-level golf travel professionals with direct purchasing power to come face-to-face with an exclusive collection of golf courses, destinations, and resorts. We call said industry specialists ‘buyers’ and all buyers are carefully selected and pre-qualified by our team. If you’re looking to engage in high-quality business conversations with golf tourism’s leading brands whilst enjoying VIP benefits such as exclusive networking opportunities, this is the event for you.

Why attend IGTM?

As you would expect, many of the buyers who attend IGTM are seasoned speciality golf tour operators and agents who attend the show year after year to connect with old friends and make new connections within the industry.

Because this is an invitation-only event, we like to think of it as the who’s who of the Golf Travel World.

The opportunity to see everyone in person again is priceless and makes such a huge difference. IGTM is the opportunity for the networking we’ve missed. This is my 4th IGTM and when I think about the key points in my career when I’ve needed people to help me or an important connection, it was always made at IGTM.

I’ve had meetings with some excellent quality buyers at IGTM this year. Being the hosts of the Irish Open earlier this year, it’s crucial for us to keep the Mount Juliet brand out there. Now more than ever, relationships are at the forefront of everything we do. We’ve been delighted to be here with Tourism Ireland and combining not only the golf, but also the culture, hospitality, estate properties and stories our country has to offer.

We received some good business leads from the virtual IGTM Links last year but it’s great to have more time to do business face to face at last. The results of the show have been good for our Cyprus family of businesses. I am pleased to see smiling new faces and those we have seen behind a screen for such a long time.

I have been delighted with the success my business has made through IGTM this year, it is one of the best IGTM events I’ve ever been to. The venue has been fantastic, and the buyer quality has also been excellent - IGTM is without a doubt the premium event for the golf travel industry.
