Cambodia to host debut travel mart
The first Cambodia Travel Mart (CTM) 2017 will be held from November 17 to 19 at Sokha Siem Reap Resort & Convention Center, Siem Reap, Cambodia. The mart will have around 200+ sellers and 200+ buyers and about 50 media agencies.
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.
