Dispatch | The 24th Philippine Travel Mart Kicks Off

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.
