Hua Hin has won the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO)’s Award for Golf Destination of the Year for Asia 2019. This is the second time that Hua Hin has won the award in this category since 2014
The Award was presented on 18th October during the International Golf Travel Mart (IGTM) 2018 held in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The Award carries enormous weight because it is voted for by specialist golf tour operators, who are members of IAGTO.
Established in 1997, IAGTO’s membership comprises 2,748 accredited golf tour operators, golf resorts, hotels, golf courses, airlines, tourist boards, approved media and business partners in 105 countries including, 692 specialist golf tour operators in 64 countries. It is estimated that IAGTO’s operators control over 87% of golf holiday packages sold worldwide and turnover more than €2.1 billion per year.
The award was made at the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM), attended by over 500 golf tourism suppliers who join 400+ pre-qualified buyers and 100 international press for four days of pre-scheduled appointments, networking, and industry and trend updates. This year the TAT participated in the IGTM for the ninth year to negotiate business with buyers from around the world. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said “It is truly an honour to be conferred this prestigious award for the second time in five years. We are also gratified to see Hua Hin continuing to be recognised as one of Thailand’s most popular golf tourism destinations, especially amongst the emerging generation of young women golfers in countries; such as, China, India, Japan and Korea.
