IAGTO - Golf Tourism Supplier of the Year 2013 - Winner
Onyria Golf Resorts is voted IAGTO’S Golf Tourism Supplier of the Year
Onyria Golf Resorts was named the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) golf tourism Supplier of the Year, at the awards dinner at International Golf Travel Market (IGTM).
The awards are voted by tour operators and golf travel writers and it was a success on ‘home turf’ for Onyria Golf Resorts, as the ceremony took place in Vilamoura, Portugal, venue for this year’s IGTM.
The 'supplier of the year' category was introduced only last year. Previously, IAGTO awards recognised only golf destinations and golf resorts. The new category opened up the awards for all IAGTO members including golf courses, hotels, inbound operators, transportation companies and others, comprising more than 1,400 in 85 countries.
More than 450 IAGTO golf tour operators from 59 different countries cast their votes for the award. Each operator was asked to nominate whom they considered to be the best performing IAGTO supplier this year in terms of dealing with tour operators, handling ‘fam’ trips and, above all, obtaining high customer satisfaction. Tour operators may vote for any one of the IAGTO 1,400 members.
The IAGTO Golf Travel Awards, established in 2000, are the official annual awards for the golf tourism industry and reward a few exceptional contributions to this world of golf travel, voted for by IAGTO operators and the IGTWA’s golf travel writers. The awards ceremony and gala dinner takes place during the International Golf Travel Market at the end of each year.
