Phuket to host major travel fair

Phuket will host Thailand Travel Mart Plus 2022 (TTM+ 2022) to showcase travel products, services and experiences from around the nation from June 8-10.

Deputy Phuket governor Phichet Panapong said TTM+ is recognised as Thailand's most significant annual business to business (B2B) travel trade event for those in the tourism trade to meet current and potential business partners.

The event will offer the chance for local businesses to reinforce their relationships with global travel specialists, or people to introduce or expand their businesses with international partners, he said.

Phuket was chosen as the host venue due to its readiness to handle large events and thanks to its facilities including an international airport, high-quality hotels and a variety of attractions, he said.

The event at Angsana Laguna Phuket will be organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and supported by the province, the Provincial Administrative Organisation (PAO) and the private sector, said TAT Phuket Office director Nanthasiri Ronnasiri.

The theme will be ''Visit Thailand Year 2022, Amazing New Chapters" to inspire local and international travellers to explore more of Thailand, she said.

TTM+ 2022 will feature business-matching sessions, a TTM Talk, Thailand product update sessions, a networking dinner, exhibitions and tours for buyers and international media.

The event, cancelled for the last two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is expected to attract 700 participants from 50 countries such as Australia and the United States.
