The International Travel Trade Show of Maldives (TTM), taking place from May 1-3, 2018, is returning for the second year with new components including the invite-only Maldives Supplier Expo.
Taking place May 2-3, the inaugural Maldives Supplier Expo is expected to welcome over 1,000 decision makers and purchasing chiefs from over 150 resorts and other companies.
A conference management software has been launched for the supplier expo, allowing suppliers and visitors to request, accept and schedule meetings via a portal on the TTM website. Users can set up to a maximum of 50 meetings within the two days.
TTM will bring back the Hotelier Summit Maldives, where four panel sessions are scheduled to take place, with participation from 150 hotel owners, general managers from resorts and hotels in the Maldives.
The TTM 2018 Gala Night is set to be held on May 2, 18.00 to 23.00 at Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi, and the Tourism Career Fair will take place on May 3, 20.00-23.00.
