Vice Director of the city’s Tourism Department Nguyen Xuan Binh, said over 600 tour operators, golf course managers, travel agency and air line representatives, and tourism managers from 39 countries and territories in Asia and the Pacific will take part in the event.
The event will also be an opportunity for buyers and sellers exchanging information about tourism services, destinations, hospitality and conferences relating to the tourism industry.
The golf tourism event is a prelude to the 2017 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation) Summit and the annual Danang International Fireworks Competition to be held in the city next year.
Danang and its neighbouring provinces of Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue are popular sites in central Vietnam, with beautiful golf courses designed by Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Collin Montgomerie and Luke Donald including Da Nang Golf Club, Ba Na Hills Golf Club, Montgomerie Links, and Laguna Lang Co Golf Club.
Last week, Ba Na Hills Golf Club in Danang was awarded the title of Best New Golf Course in Asia and the Pacific and the first runner up of Best Golf Course in Vietnam at the 2016 Asian Golf Awards.
Danang also received an award for hosting Asia’s Leading Festival and Event at the World Travel Awards ceremony for tourism last month.
Over 4.6 million tourists visited the city in 2015.
