The Thailand Travel Mart+ 2019 took place at the
Ocean Marina Yacht Club in
Jomtien, near Pattaya, from 5-7 June 2019.
The three-day TTM+ 2019, Thailand’s
leading B2B travel trade show, was held this year under the
theme of ‘New Shades of Emerging Destinations’ as part of the
Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) strategy to promote 55
TTM+ 2019 attracted 340 buyers from 51
countries, up 18.47% on 2018.
For the first time, the buyers list included 13
companies from Brazil along with new buyers from Chile, Argentina
First time buyers were also invited from
other new source-markets including Lebanon, Latvia, Estonia,
Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Slovakia, Ukraine and Israel.
There were 370 exhibitors, mainly
from the southern and central regions of Thailand.
Mrs. Srisuda Wanapinyosak, TAT Deputy Governor
of International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and
Americas) said, “We recognise that in this
era of constant change in everything from customer segments to
technology and demographic profiles, the value of travel trade
shows needs to be constantly refreshed and enhanced to justify the
investment in time and money by both buyers and sellers. We also have to marry the business objectives of
the private sector with our national objectives to create jobs,
reduce income disparities and better distribute visitors around
the country. At the TTM Plus, all these objectives have been
merged. It takes time and effort for emerging destination cities
to be recognised and chosen by travellers, and this year’s TTM
Plus has set the ball rolling.”
The line-up of TTM+ talks also included an
all-Thai cast of 10 speakers covering a broad range of cultural,
environmental, technological and historic topics under the theme
“Making the World a Better Place through Travel”.
