The Thailand Travel Mart 2013 Plus (TTM+2013) to be held between June 5-7, 2013, in Bangkok will have two first-time events: the participation of Yunnan Provincial Tourism Administration and the introduction of debates to the Travel Forum. Both will help expand the quality of participation in Thailand’s largest business to business event.
The Yunnan Provincial Tourism Administration has registered a team of 26 delegates to participate in TTM+. This is a very important step forward as the TTM+ is designed to showcase the exciting tourism products of the entire Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) which includes Yunnan province of China, Myanmar, Laos PDR, Vietnam, and Cambodia. On 28 April 2012, TAT and China (Yunnan) signed a memorandum of understanding on promoting the flow of tourists between the two countries.
The concept of debate has been incorporated into the forum for buyers and sellers on the topics Creative Travel and DIY Tourism.
Suraphon Svetasreni, governor, TAT said, “The strong presence of Yunnan province will certainly give a major boost for buyers seeking new destinations in this part of the world. At the same time, the inclusion of debates is now important in order to broaden industry discourse and provide an opportunity for such important issues to be discussed in a comprehensive manner.”
