9th European Conference on Club Management by Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) @ H10 Andalucía Plaza
Nov 26 – Nov 28 all-day

CMAE is delighted to announce that plans are well underway for the 9th CMAE European Conference on Club Management.

Brought back by popular demand from the members of the Association, the two day conference will be held at the H10 Andalucia Hotel in Marbella from Sunday 26th November to Tuesday 28th November.

The conference will have a full schedule of education sessions based around CMAE’s ten core competencies of modern club management and will feature speakers on demand led subject matters pertinent to active club managers.

Opening the Conference will be Spain’s own Javier Reviriego, Chief Executive of Real Club Valderrama, who will speak on how his team delivers Club management excellence. Conference delegates will have the exclusive chance to visit Real Club Valderrama for lunch and play 9 holes on the famous Championship Course on Tuesday 28th November.

Organisers are expecting to announce a key note speaker next month for the Monday evening Gala Dinner along with confirming the other speakers on various topics crucial to improving operational and governance skills for Managers of city, golf and sports Clubs across Europe.

CMAE’s President Marc Newey said “Last year our Members asked us to revive the European Conference and there is nowhere better than Marbella to stage it. We wanted to build upon the tremendous success of our Management Development programmes- 52 delivered to date- and create more networking and social opportunities for our Membership to enjoy. The Andalucia Hotel is an excellent venue and to be able to play the back nine of the iconic Ryder Cup course at Valderrama will be a great way to conclude the Conference”.

Delegate fees for the conference start at €595 for a 2 night package. Additional nights and supplements will apply.

‘All-Time High’ Predicted for International Golf Travel Market @ Palais des festivals et des Congres
Dec 11 – Dec 14 all-day

Cannes, France: International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) has announced a significant increase in the number of first-time buyers to pre-register for the 20th edition of the world’s premier global event for the golf tourism industry.

Over the past two decades, IGTM has travelled to nine different countries, with the first edition held in Fort Lauderdale in 1998, where it welcomed 130 exhibitors and 100 buyers from 16 countries.

This year, the appointment-based event is set to attract up to 420 buyers from across the globe – an increase of 5% from 2016 – as well as more than 550 golf travel suppliers and 100 specialised international media.

Taking place in Cannes, one of Europe’s most glamorous and accessible destinations, this year’s event will also bring together a number of new buyers from the luxury and MICE sector, all with an interest in golf.

Peter Grimster, IGTM Exhibition Manager, said: “We have worked incredibly hard over the past 20 years to ensure we consistently provide the perfect platform for the global golf industry to network and conduct business.

“Every year we aim to attract new destinations and golf travel businesses to the event, so it is particularly pleasing to see such strong buyer interest, as it will again ensure the 2017 edition of IGTM is another must-attend event.”

In addition to the 260 pre-registered buyers, the 2017 edition has already allocated more than 80% of its exhibition space, featuring more than 20 new exhibitors from countries including South Africa, Cyprus, Japan, Portugal and Spain, as well as returning destinations such as Dubai.

“It is also satisfying to see a number of exhibitors, such as Morocco, Canary Islands, Tuscany and European Tour Properties, all choosing to increase their presence at the show this year, as it further demonstrates the on-going importance of IGTM for the global golf tourism industry,” added Grimster.

“With over 14,500 appointments in 2016, last year was a record-breaking year for IGTM and, with the state-of-the-art venue in Cannes, we fully expect our landmark 20th edition to reach another all-time high.”

The 20th edition of IGTM will take place at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, in the south of France, from December 11-14.
