Vicky Karantzavelou - 10 August 2017, 00:12

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) hosted the Thailand Golf Travel Mart (TGTM) 2017 from 25-28 July 2017 in Khao Yai giving the opportunity to golf tour operators from key international markets to meet with suppliers and golf courses owners from across Thailand.

The aim of the Thailand Golf Travel Mart 2017, organised by Tourism Authority of Thailand, is to promote Thailand as a world-class golf destination and show how the kingdom's courses and tour operators are set up to cater to golf tourists. The event helped creating new opportunities for Thai golf business operators allowing them to promote their services to vital foreign markets. It is hoped that the TGTM will increase the golfers who visit Thailand to play golf generating revenue in all parts of the country.
