Golf Tourism – Is It Asian Golf’s Cash Cow?

4.12pm 29th August 2017 - Exhibitions & Conferences

The Asia Pacific Golf Summit’s spotlight will be focused on the topic of golf tourism and how it is said to be growing in Asia, especially in Southeast Asia.

There are reports that estimate this sector of tourism to be worth in excess of US$2 billion dollars. Unfortunately, there are no statistics to support this impressive claim. Whatever the case is, golf tourism is being looked upon by national tourism organisations, golf club owners and operators as a growth sector and major money spinner.

The primary thrust of the APGS 2017 will be to get down to the bottom of golf tourism and find out if the trends are indeed promising glory days ahead.

The man who will be leading this quest to find out more about golf tourism in the region and the opportunities available and the potential challenges envisioned will be Mark Siegel, managing director of Golfasian, widely regarded as the top performer in Asian golf tourism. He will share some new research findings on the megatrends impacting golf tourism and will lead a highly impressive panel session to debate the topic at the 2017 Asia Pacific Golf Summit that will be held in Danang, Vietnam on November 14-16.
