WEST MEETS EAST, AS TWO POWERHOUSES OF GOLF TOURISM PARTNER UP!
Bangkok, Thailand 24 October 2017 - Visions of Far East adventure have stirred the imaginations of western travelers since the days of Marco Polo. And now, shepherded by Ms. Zenta Thomas and Dragon Rock, the stars have aligned for intrepid golf travelers in the form of a new East-West powerhouse alliance between Destination Golf Magazine and Golfasian.
“The alliance between Destination Golf Magazine, recognized as the world’s #1 Golf Travel Magazine and Golfasian, East Asia’s #1 Golf Tour Innovator was a natural fit waiting to be discovered” says Ms Thomas. “It is with great satisfaction and excitement I am announcing the ground work is laid to make Golf Travel to Asia more simplified, alluring, and pleasurable than ever before.”
Destination Golf’s dynamic bi-monthly golf travel magazine will soon be coupled with the new Far East focused, Asian Global Guide which will supply their world-wide subscriber base of over 160,000 readers with stirring new insights and tempting destination specifics.
Every issue of the Destination Golf Global Guide is dedicated to a different country or region and spotlights clubs, resorts, tourism boards, and operators thus providing an opportunity to be recognized and promoted to an entirely new western audience. The Asian Global Guide is slated to launch in the Spring of 2018, in time to coincide with the AGTC Convention being held in Manilla from April 22 to 25.
Destination Golf successes with the Global Guides have been many, with regions covered in previous issues typically seeing exceptional increases in inquiries and traffic. Ms Thomas suggests that, “exposure in the Global Guide is a good way to leverage the media to maximize business potential in the European and American markets which are currently underrepresented in the mix of incoming Golf Tourists in Asia.”
Destination Golf, Golfasian along with Asia-based correspondent, Mr. Sam Sakocius (President, Qualitas Project Control) are on a mission to increase the volume of golf tourists to SE Asia by illustrating the exotic and unique travel opportunities through captivating articles and enticing photographs which highlight the culture and adventure inherent in Asian Golf holidays as well as the golf itself.
Mr. Mark Siegel, the Managing Director of Golfasian, who has been featured in Destination Golf’s bi-monthly issues, is on board as Destination Golf’s advisor-in-chief not only for the Asian Global Guide, but with all things relating to golf tourism in Asia. Mark Siegel, Golfasian.
