IAGTO North America Golf Tourism Convention (NAC)

IAGTO North America Golf Tourism Convention (NAC)

Event Details

The 15th IAGTO North America Golf Tourism Convention (NAC) will take place at Mountain Grand Lodge & Spa in Boyne Falls, Northern Michigan, from 17-19 June 2024.

The Convention is open to golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels, tourist boards, DMOs, DMCs and other golf tourism suppliers primarily from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean but also from around the world. Suppliers and buyers pre-schedule appointments with each other for two days of meetings.

The event begins with a Golf Tournament over two of the destination’s outstanding golf courses, and will incorporate both a Welcome and Farewell evening function. A buffet lunch is provided for all delegates during the two convention days, and we host everyone for drinks at the IAGTO Bar after the Dine-Around evening.

Northern Michigan is an exceptional golf destination with Boyne Golf’s 10 golf courses and two golf resorts right at the heart of it. June is also the perfect month to experience the destination’s golf at its very best.

We fully anticipate NAC 2024 being sold out early on, so please apply to attend as soon as possible.

Buyers are golf tour operators or specialist golf travel agencies who sell golf vacations direct to the consumer (the golfer).

  1. Buyers must be in compliance with all necessary trading requirements of their state or country;
  2. Buyers must contract directly with suppliers in golf destinations (travel agencies that only re-sell golf holiday packages produced by other golf tour operators, should not apply).



Suppliers are companies wishing to do business directly with outbound golf tour operators. These include golf resorts, golf clubs, hotels, receptive operators (DMCs) as well as national, state, provincial and regional tourist boards (CVBs).

Applications can be made from any country, with priority given to Suppliers located in the following regions:

  1. USA
  2. Canada
  3. Caribbean
  4. Mexico
  5. Latin America
