IGTM announces initial programme for Rome 2022

IGTM 2022 will take place from 17th-20th October.

RX (Reed Exhibitions), the organiser behind IGTM (International Golf Travel Market) has confirmed its initial programme for this year’s event, as well as a new venue.

Scheduled to take place from 17th – 20th October 2022, the host venue will be La Nuvola, one of the most iconic and visionary buildings in Rome.

In a statement released, David Todd, Event Manager of IGTM said: “In order to provide our attendees with the best possible event experience and environment to do business in, selecting the location and amenities is our priority. We have made the decision to choose La Nuvola based on its adaptability, location and modern facilities launching just six years ago. We are now confident La Nuvola will meet our event’s and all our attendees’ expectations.”

The global golf tourism market size is projected to reach US $14,570 million by 2027[1], and IGTM brings the industry together to build business further as international travel booms once again.

Exhibitors, buyers, and the media will join forces for four days of pre-scheduled meetings, networking, and the annual IGTM Golf Day. Marco Simone Golf & Country Club (the official location of the 2023 Ryder Cup), Castelgandolfo, Golf Nazionale, and Olgiata Golf Club are the legendary golf courses that participants will have the chance to play. 

Destinations already signed up for this year’s event include Morocco, Tunisia, and South Africa.

Commenting on their participation, David Connellan, Golf & Outdoors Activities, Tourism Ireland said: “Golf is vital to the growth of the Irish tourism industry, and we see IGTM 2022 vital in allowing our partners to showcase the best of Irish golf. IGTM places the best of buyers in front of our partners allowing them to highlight their offerings to the best quality audiences in a B2B setting.”

Phil Arger, Commercial Manager, Golf-Drives commented: “IGTM Rome will be the perfect platform to meet our core B2B market decision-makers face to face after what has been an incredibly challenging few years. We expect Rome to be the event that marks an end to the staggered recovery and a chance to really put the foot on the gas again in golf travel.”

Olivier Odin, Business Unit Operator, Play Golf in France and Co-founder & CEO, Private Golf Key commented: "I have been taking part in IGTM for 15 years and it is a must golf trade show to enhance our golf tourism business. Outside of our meetings, the networking is not to be missed. I can't wait to be in Roma in October 2022!"
