Kenya shines at IGTM 2011

The Golf in Kenya delegation has recently returned from the World Travel Market and International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) which was held in Belek, Turkey. IGTM is the premier event for the golf travel industry where over 600 golf tourism suppliers join 350 pre-qualified buyers and 140 international press representatives for four days of pre-scheduled appointments, networking opportunities and industry updates.

Golf in Kenya was represented by the Kenya Tourist Board, the Kenya Golf Marketing Alliance, Hemingways Expeditions, Private Safaris, Vipingo Ridge, Leisure Lodge Golf Resort and Heritage Hotels. Kenya’s Minister of Tourism – the Hon. Najib Balala – took time from his busy schedule to visit the Kenya stand and officially launchGolf in Kenya – the natural choice, Kenya’s official golf destination guide.

Kenya’s marketing initiative has received international attention: see Breaking Travel News, Golf 100 Magazine, Golf Blogger co.uk, The Travel Writer’s Lounge and World News.
