The longest-running travel trade exhibition in the Philippines, the Philippine Travel Mart is returning for its 30th year this August, promising more fun and excitement for all of its participants!
It is a three-day event happening from August 30 to September 1 at the SMX Convention Center Manila in the Mall of Asia. Organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA), the travel mart is all about the promotion of Philippine tourist attractions as well as the latest and most affordable tourism offerings in the country.
For an easier access to the attendees, the exhibition will be clustered according to the offerings and services that people can avail from them. It is also to highlight the diversity of tourism products that are available in the exhibition.
Divided into four zones are the Blue Zone, for beach, cruise, and marine sports; the Green zone for cultural and farm tourism; the Pink Zone for health, wellness, and culinary booths; and the Yellow zone for MICE and Entertainment.
