To highlight the most wonderful destinations in the country, the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) is kicking off its 34th Philippine Travel Mart from Sept. 1-3 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
As one of the biggest travel fairs in the Philippines, this year’s event will feature about 300 exhibitors, including travel agencies, resorts, tourism offices, tour operators, and hotels from 17 regions in the country.
During the three-day event, travel junkies attending can avail themselves of discounted tour packages, airfare deals, accommodation services, promotional holiday deals, and other travel-related services for numerous destinations around the country.
According to a report by the Philippine News Agency, some of the places that PHILTOA will be highlighting in the event are the “hidden gems” of the country, including the Zamboanga Peninsula, Sarangani, Quirino, Cotabato, General Santos City, and Sultan Kudarat.
PHILTOA likewise shared on its website that this year’s exhibition will be maximizing the use of technology. “The tourism fair also goes high-tech as it supports the use of vibrant electronic billboards in replacement of traditional tarpaulins. Visitors can also scan the QR codes of exhibitors to find their locations as well as conduct paperless transactions,” the post read.
