This is also the first time that ICC Wales has been entered for the awards and to win two awards in collaboration with Celtic Manor is a fantastic achievement considering the new venue was only open for six months before the pandemic struck”
ICC Wales recently hosted the International Golf Travel Market from 18th - 21st October – the first time the global B2B event for the golf travel industry has ever been welcomed to the UK. Congratulations to all on your recent achievements.
