The 31st Travel Tour Expo (TTE) and the ninth International Travel Trade Expo will be held from February 2 to 4 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, Pasay City in the Philippines.
Organised by the Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA), the TTE 2024 will spotlight how the Philippine tourism and hospitality industries have levelled up to make domestic and international trips for Filipinos more worthwhile through exclusive deals and packages on air fares, tours, and accommodations.
TTE 2024 will host more than 200 participating exhibitors with 702 booths, and anticipates a turnout of 100,000 travel enthusiasts. Booths will include airlines, domestic and international travel agencies and tour operators, hotels and resorts, cruise liners and shipping, merchandisers and more. It will also serve as the launchpad for new destinations, affordable tours, transportation choices, tailor-fit accommodations, and various payment options to cater to every voyager.
“Many travellers are eager to make up for lost time. Revenge travel has undeniably played a role in the resurgence of tourism – more importantly, people have realised that life is short. This renewed eagerness to travel, to live life and experience other places and cultures is definitely long-term,” remarked PTAA president Evangeline Tankiang-Manotok.
While digital platforms have made travel more accessible, convenient and personalised, TTE 2024 chairperson Patria Chiong said that “travel agencies offer people-to-people connection” and offer ever-ready assistance “in case of misconnections, missing luggage, insurance”.
This event is sponsored by Tourism Promotions Board, Union Bank of the Philippines, AirSwift Transport, Philippine Airlines, TIEZA, PLDT, and Taiwan Tourism Bureau.
