Despite the ongoing global health crisis, this year’s Philippine Travel Mart will still push through.
Now on its 31st year, the event will be the second biggest travel event which will be held this year after community quarantine protocols have been eased.
Various travel and tour agencies will be offering packages to some of the famed Philippine tourist destinations, which will likewise highlight new discoveries to explore.
The travel exhibition is organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) and will run from December 4 to 6, at SM Megamall Megatrade Hall.
Meanwhile, Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) chief operating officer Atty. Maria Anthonette Allones shared that the agency is also organizing a MICE (Meeting, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions) Farm Tourism Tour to familiarize future travelers with the “new normal” protocols.
Allones recently said during the World Travel Mart forum that the Philippines is still among the top destinations preferred by foreign travelers, but inbound travel restrictions remain in place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
