The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) will organise the Travex at the 37th edition of the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) in Chiang Mai next year, tapping on its 16-year experience in running the Thailand Travel Mart Plus (TTM+).
ATF will take place at the Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre from January 22 to 26, 2018. Travex will run from January 24 to 26.
Thailand’s tourism and sports minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, who also chairs the ASEAN Tourism Ministers grouping, commented: “Based on its experience organising TTM, TAT undoubtedly has the marketing reach and buyer-handling discipline to make Travex work smoothly for ASEAN.”
Hosted and non-hosted travel industry buyers are required to meet a set of criteria including: being a senior decision maker or consultant, negotiator and influencer from an outbound department; having purchase authority to contract on the show floor; and having a history of continuous travel purchases.
TTG has been appointed the only official show daily at ATF 2018.
