In its continuous effort to push forward the country’s tourism industry, the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) Philippines gives its unyielding support to the 30th Philippine Travel Mart (PTM) happening from August 30 to September 1, 2019 at SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with the theme “Fostering Sustainable and Inclusive Tourism”, PTM remains to be the longest-running travel trade exhibition in the Philippines. Organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association Inc. (PHILTOA), this year’s event will have over 250 exhibitors offering the best deals from all over the country. With Philippines being part of the ASEAN community, intra-regional travel will also be promoted, with equally-exciting offers from China, Japan and Korea.
Other activities include “Sale ng Bayan business-to-consumer (B2C)” where travelers can directly book and buy holiday packages, as well as business-to-business sessions where potential clients can meet with tour operators and resort owners right on the floor. Visitors to PTM 2019 will also be treated to live entertainment and cultural events from the different participating regions.
With common goals shared with PTM 2019, TPB’s support of the event aims to bolster the tourism industry through the promotion of the country’s rich culture, natural attractions, and products, while supporting a sustainable business environment socially equitable for local communities.
