HD Videos from ASEAN Tourism Forum 2016 in Manila, Philippines

[HD videos below] The annual ASEAN Tourism Forum is one of the most important travel trade shows in the region.

Taking place each year in January, the show rotates between ASEAN countries to ensure that media and buyers not only get to meet potential business partners they may not otherwise have met, but also so that they better understand the destinations they sell or write about.

It also allows exhibitors from the host country, some of whom may not have sufficient marketing budget to exhibit overseas, to promote their business - whether it be an airline, hotel or something else - to a pre-qualified group of travel buyers and international media.

In 2015 the ATF took place in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar and in 2016 Manila, Philippines was the host country.

The Travex component of the AEAN Tourism Forum 2016 saw some 1,000 exhibitors connect with 457 buyers from around the world, alongside 175 international and local media.

Below you will find most of the HD videos that we took at the event. Not all the press conferences are featured as we focused on the more professional and factual presentations, rather than those which concentrated on telling media how many awards they had won, and showing off their social media skills.

Unlike in previous years, media at ATF 2016 were given very little time on the exhibition floor, which is a pity as many were hoping to interview more people from the Philippines. Hopefully this is something which Singapore, the host country of ASEAN Tourism Forum 2017, will address, as it makes far more sense to bring media in a day or two early so that all the NTO media briefings can take place before the show starts, freeing up time for media to work the floor and get more stories/interviews.

The ASEAN Tourism Forum 2017 will take place 16-20 January.
