Organisers of the ATF 2012 Travex say they have received 20% more registrations from exhibitors, buyers and media as compared to the same time last year when the event was held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The 2012 event has reported sales of more than 100 booths to date. Some 200 buyers and close to 85 media have also submitted their registrations early in order to maximise their chances of getting one of the limited hosted places available.

Confirmed exhibitors include hotel chains such as Dusit International, the Sol Melia Group, Jakarta, Sunshine Borneo Tours and Travel, Dorsett International, Centara Hotels and Resorts, Oberoi Hotels and Resorts Indonesia, Eastin Hotel, Siam Kempinski Hotel and Vacation Singapore DMC.

Among the 200 interested buyers are organisations like Select Vacations Australia, Big Tree Travels and Tours Malaysia, Optimal Travel Services UK, Tui Netherlands, Go Vacation Thailand and Hotelrooms Inc.

ATF Travex Secretariat believes that much of the early interest can be attributed to a successful ATF 2011 that scored high among the over 2000 attending delegates. Delegates included more than 1,000 exhibitors representing more than 400 companies from the 10 ASEAN nations, more than 440 international buyers representing 55 countries, close to 150 media from across 32 countries and more than 400 NTOs.

ATF 2012 marks the event’s 31st installment. ASEAN member-nation Indonesia will host ATF 2012 in Manado from 9 to 15 January.

ATF Travex, the 3-day travel trade mart component of the event, will take place from 13 to 15 January at the newly constructed Golden Kawanua Convention Centre.

In a statement to the Travex secretariat, His Excellency Ir. Jero Wacik, Minister of Culture and Tourism, Indonesia said, “The Golden Kawanua Convention Centre is just one of the many exciting efforts that Manado is making to contribute to a successful ATF 2012. The convention centre is just 10 minutes away from the Sam Ratulangi Airport, which is accessible from a host of international destinations.”
