Thailand will underline its attempt to become Asia’s golf hub by hosting four international events within 18 months starting with the inaugural PGA Conference of Asia later this month.
Mike Sebastian, managing director of Asia Pacific Golf Development Conference and organiser of the events, said the move was a clear indication of the growing golf industry in Thailand.
“More than 350 people have confirmed that they will join the PGA Conference of Asia, which is beyond our target,” said Sebastian.
The function will be held at the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel from April 30-May 1.
Also at the conference, there will be the official launch of the PGA of Asia.
The next three events are the Asia Pacific Golf Summit (Oct 18-20, 2010), the Southeast Asia/India Golf Merchandise Exposition (Mar 18-20, 2011) and the Global Golf Tourism Forum (2011).
