Every year ITB Asia mounts the Trade Show for the entire Asian Travel Market bringing together representatives from every country and every sector of the booming travel and tourism industry across Asia and the Pacific. The three day spectacular features delegations, displays and events from almost one hundred Asia-Pacific countries and has been growing rapidly year upon year, as the region’s exceptional tourism growth continues to power upwards.
MESSE Berlin (Singapore) are the organizers of ITB Asia 2012 and have announced that they will increase the overall exhibition floor space by fifteen per cent compared to last year and move to level four of the massive Suntec Singapore Events Center after a record performance in 2011. (This part has to take out as the venue for this year is Marina Bay Sands hotel, Singapore)
The Phuket Tourist Association will send a large and high – powered delegation to this year’s event including most of the key movers and shakers in the local industry.
The list of countries mounting exhibits this year ranges from as far afield as Botswana, Finland, Croatia and Iraq as well as the more expected Asia Pacific nations and so it is vital to Phuket’s continuing tourism success to make a major impact at this event. As the major Business- to-Business tourism platform, sales and networking event in the region a strong representation of Phuket’s excellent tourism product will be presented by the elite delegation of local delegates in attendance.
The Guide Phuket is proud to be selected to publish this special editions featuring the 2012 ITB Asia event, as well as for the World Travel Mart 2012 Edition which we will publish in November.
Both these special editions are distributed to a very wide international audience of travel industry decision makers and travel partners and serve to promote the Andaman region to the global tourism market.
