Today, the Philippine Travel Mart, now on its record breaking 24th year kicks off. The trade show will run until the weekend, Sept 8, 2013 Sunday at the SMX Convention grounds, Mall of Asia. Went there earlier to see the 350 exhibitors and look for great deals. I especially liked connecting with some of the region’s tourism representatives, the hotels and most especially the airlines with their sweet deals. PAL, CEB, ZestAir/AirAsia, SkyJet, Seair and Skyjet are present with their respective booths. They got really good deals on flights not just on future flights but immediate ones as well. Do visit if you like deals on anything travel related.
Philippine Tourism Week
The Philippine Travel Mart is part of the 1st Philippine Tourism Week scheduled September 1-8, 2013, organized by Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) in partnership with Department of Tourism. During this period, forums would be held regarding tourism among ASEAN nations and how tourism creates jobs.
