News this week: The Philippines will host Southeast Asia’s first luxury travel show, Asia Premium Travel Mart, from 26th to 28th May 2015 at SMX Convention Center.
Organised by S8 Exhibitions, Corporate International Travel & Tours, Light Miles Travel, Celebrate Life Travel & Leisure, Luxus Pacific and Rajah Tours, the annual event will showcase the Philippines as a luxury destination through hosting luxury inbound and outbound travel professionals. According to the organisers, an expected 150 to 200 exhibitors will join, with half of those originating from Asia-Pacific and others from Europe, the Americas and the Middle East.
Shan David, president, S8 Exhibitions, said, “Even if the north doesn’t have many luxury accommodation, we will make it a luxury experience for our buyers; we have three UNESCO sites, so the culture and heritage experience is there. We also know some buyers may not want to see beach destinations (only).”
