BANGKOK, 24 April 2013 The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is ready to organize another travel extravaganza to restate Thailand’s stance as the regional hub for holiday business.
TAT Governor Suraphon Svetasreni revealed on Tuesday that the tourism authority will hold “Thailand Travel Mart Plus The Greater Mekong Subregion” or TTM+2013 during June 5-7 at Impact Muang Thong Thani, in suburban Bangkok.
Mr. Suraphon said the upcoming travel promotion event is aimed at promoting Thai travel destinations and tourist service in the international market through business deals and negotiations between Thai and foreign business operators.
He added that the TAT hopes the event will help open more doors for small- and medium-sized businesses to meet markets outside Thailand.
The TAT Governor stated that this year’s event will be organized under the theme “Customize Your Experience” and will see the participation of at least 400 local businesses, ranging from travel agencies to hotels and resorts, airlines, golf courses and spa services.
Mr. Suraphon said that 413 buyers from 62 countries already confirmed their presence at the event.
He also noted that TTM+2013 will also be an opportunity for tourism businesses in the Greater Mekong Subregion to join and help highlight Thailand’s position as the travel hub of this region.
