The Min­istry of Tourism Cam­bo­dia in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Slick­booth Hold­ing – Events & Pub­lic Re­la­tions, will be host­ing the first Cam­bo­dia Travel Mart CTM 2017 from Novem­ber 17 to 19 at Sokha Siem Reap Re­sort & Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, Siem Reap, Cam­bo­dia.

The event will be led by Thong Khon, Min­is­ter of Tourism Cam­bo­dia and will be at­tended by se­nior of­fi­cers and ex­perts from the Min­istry of Tourism Cam­bo­dia, in­dus­try lead­ers and pri­vate com­pa­nies of the tourism sec­tor.

The Cam­bo­dia Travel Mart 2017 was prin­ci­pally ap­proved and per­mit­ted by the Royal Gov­ern­ment of Cam­bo­dia in 2015 and now the Min­istry of Tourism Cam­bo­dia has taken up the ini­tia­tive to or­gan­ise and co­op­er­ate with state in­sti­tutes and pri­vate sec­tors in tourism.

Thong Khon says, “CTM will be the best busi­ness tourism plat­form in South­east Asia for buy­ers and sell­ers from dif­fer­ent coun­tries to par­tic­i­pate in tourism net­work­ing and busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties. The fact that Cam­bo­dia has so far been main­tain­ing peace in the re­gion has made tourism de­velop from year-to-year un­der the bril­liant lead­er­ship of Prime Min­is­ter Sam­dach Ahka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen. In 2016, the num­ber of tourists vis­it­ing Cam­bo­dia in­creased five per cent, and there were about 5 mil­lion tourists. In 2017, Cam­bo­dia ex­pects to have 5.5 mil­lion tourists and seven mil­lion in 2020. Thus, the first event of CTM in Siem Reap this year is a key fac­tor to de­velop tourism in Cam­bo­dia and to achieve the ex­pected goals.”

CTM 2017 is an ideal tourism busi­ness fo­rum be­tween tourism com­pa­nies, tourism op­er­a­tors, tourism ex­perts, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional me­dia, which will amount to a to­tal of ap­prox­i­mately 500 com­pa­nies and agen­cies. The fo­rum is sup­ported by tourism or­gan­i­sa­tions of ASEAN state mem­ber coun­tries and aims to im­prove lo­cal and re­gional tourism. This spe­cial event is a golden op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote tourism des­ti­na­tions, trade ser­vice pack­ages, ex­change ex­pe­ri­ence and de­velop busi­ness re­la­tions be­tween part­ners.

The event will host ac­tiv­i­ties such as pre-on­line busi­ness match­ing, friendly golf tour­na­ments, work­shops re­lated to tourism and dis­play of tourism prod­ucts and ser­vices. CTM will have ap­prox­i­mately 200+ na­tional and in­ter­na­tional sell­ers and 200+ na­tional and in­ter­na­tional buy­ers. Be­sides sell­ers and buy­ers, there will be about 50 na­tional and in­ter­na­tional me­dia agen­cies join­ing this event.

CTM is an event or­ga­nized to show Cam­bo­dia’s sup­port of pro­mot­ing tourism des­ti­na­tions of ASEAN mem­ber coun­tries to the world and to cel­e­brate the Visit [email protected] (Golden Cel­e­bra­tion) as well.
