Significantly, this year’s exhibition will be held on the Costa Daurada at the one of Troon’s flagship properties, LUMINE Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community, providing an ideal opportunity to showcase, first-hand, the exceptional services and facilities in the Troon portfolio.

The world’s premier golf travel event, IGTM has become a firm-fixture in the company’s business calendar. The three day event offers a unique networking opportunity for the market-leaders, allowing company delegates to demonstrate, from stand C101, its ability to develop professional and systematic approaches to facility management. Featuring a team from across the vast international division, buyers will be able to meet with the expertise of the market-leaders for guidance in creating unique golf experiences.

Operators can be confident in the packages provided by all Troon venues, which encompass the ideal business proposition, including exemplary course conditioning, consistent high levels of customer service, unmatched amenities and considered pricing strategies.

“IGTM is the ideal opportunity for Troon and our portfolio to display the wide-ranging attributes of each venue, enabling delegates to instil confidence and trust with business partners from key target regions,” commented International Sales and Marketing Director EMEA, Ian Bulleid. “Our company was founded on delivering quality golf experiences and the Troon mark installs confidence when golfers are looking at potential packages at our courses around the world. This show differs as specific timed appointments help focus and stimulate partnerships, develop existing relations and ensure consumer experience expectations are surpassed. The reassurance Troon gives to a customer’s investment enables operators to develop opportunities at some of the newest and most exciting destinations in the world, as well as to more established clubs.”
