TPB bagged best booth design at Philippine Travel Mart

The Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) Philippines bagged the Best Booth Design for Sponsors / Exhibitors Category during the 33rd Philippine Travel Mart (PTM) held last September 30 to October 2 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, MOA Complex in Pasay City.

The Philippine pavilion showcased the country’s rich cultural and heritage treasures through the Mandaya weavers and the centuries-old UNESCO World Heritage Site of Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Alongside heritage, the booth also featured the stunning underwater scenery of Cebu.

To beef up the booth activations, interactive trivia games, coffee sampling by Kaulayaw Coffee and craft demonstration enticing travel experiences in the Philippines welcomed booth visitors.

“This recognition reaffirms TPB’s commitment to promoting the diversity of Philippine destinations. I am very thrilled to be welcomed with this award and I look forward to working with the dynamic team from the Tourism Promotions Board as we tread towards tourism recovery and promoting the Philippines as a top-of-mind destination for leisure and business travel,”
said TPB COO Maria Margarita Montemayor Nograles.

Every year since its inception, PTM highlights new discoveries for travelers to explore; from world-renowned islands and vibrant heritage to discovering the country’s lesser-known tourism circuits and destinations.

Dressed-up booths representing the diversity of Philippine tourist attractions packed the halls of SMX Convention Center. Themed “Safe Travels,” this year’s edition featured 300 exhibitors from across the 12 regions of the country.

Organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA), the three-day flagship event offered travel enthusiasts a myriad of exclusive deals on domestic and international tour packages, accommodations, airfares, and other tourism-related services of up to 50% off regular price.

In its continuous effort to push forward the country’s tourism industry, the TPB Philippines once again gives its unyielding support to the 33rd PTM as co-presenter together with the Department of Tourism.
