IAGTO Success in Central Oregon

July 25, 2018

Golf tour operators from 25 countries descended on Oregon to celebrate the 10th annual North America Golf Tourism Convention (NAC). The tour operators participated in a record number of familiarization tours to experience, first hand, Oregon’s award-winning golf. The convention, staged by International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), was held June 24-27, 2018 at Sunriver Resort in Central Oregon, and welcomed 381 attendees.

All seven regions were highlighted at the “Taste of Oregon” welcome reception on June 24. The event kicked off the convention, giving attendees the opportunity to interact with our partners from around the state by sampling sips and bites from each region. In addition to the tasting lounges, attendees filled their dinner plates with a menu full of Oregon ingredients courtesy of the Oregon Crab Commission, Olympia Provisions, Rogue Creamery, Stoller Winery and more.

The partnership between IAGTO, Central Oregon Visitors Association and Sunriver Resort and the opportunity to showcase Oregon’s golf product will increase visitation for years to come.
