Global Tourism Economy Forum Embarks on Singapore and KL Roadshow

The Global Tourism Economy Forum (GTEF), to be held at the Venetian Macau from 12 to 14 October 2015, kicked off a two-stop Southeast Asia Roadshow in Singapore on Monday.

The roadshow, which will head to Kuala Lumpur after Singapore, is designed to promote the GTEF 2015 to the tourism community in both countries.

At the first stop of its Southeast Asia roadshow, GTEF hosted a networking luncheon at Hilton Singapore, connecting representatives from GTEF, the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO), PATA, tourism leaders from international travel agencies, transnational hoteliers, Chamber of Commerce and Trade Association, as well as local, regional and international media to enhance mutual understanding.

At the networking luncheon, Mr. Peter Wong, Vice Chairman of GTEF and Executive Chairman of China Chamber of Tourism, said, “Singapore is not only a region that shares geographical and cultural similarities with Macau, but also an invaluable partner in economic cooperation. Because tourism is both a major industry and a major contributor to the economy for both Singapore and Macau, we believe the Singaporean tourism community and GTEF are perfect partners in championing the global movement of deepening and broadening regional cooperation through tourism exchange. We look forward to your participation in this year’s edition.”

 GTEF 2015 will focus on the theme of “Belt and Road Initiative: Unleashing the New Dynamics of Cultural Tourism”, exploring subject matters such as connectivity, public-private partnership, Chinese consumers behavior and overseas investment trends, symbiosis of cultural heritage and creative living culture, and the impact of social media on tourism.

GTEF had also planned to hold an exhibition in Bangkok from 27-30 August, but this has been cancelled after the Red Color Travel Warning was issued by the Hong Kong government following the bomb which went off in the Thai capital last week.
