Hi, this is Rossiel from the Philippines.
We Filipinos love to travel so we’re constantly looking for cheaper ways to do so. This is why there are many travel promos and deals that are being offered here in the Philippines.
This is one of the events that travel enthusiast are waiting for. The Philippine Travel Expo. This year the Travel Expo was held on February 5th, 6th & 7th at the Mall of Asia SMX Convention Center Philippines. This is the largest expo for the tourism industry. It is also my first time attending a travel expo so let me tell you about my experience.
To briefly explain, the Philippine Travel Expo is held once or twice a year to accommodate more Filipino travelers and to promote the local and international tourism. Last year almost 100,000 visitors attended the event. The hopes are that this year will exceed the number of participants from the former.
Different booths from many countries participated in the events. Of course one of the main booths there is from Japan tourism. Japan tourism booths mainly offer tourism options for Hokkaido, Tokyo, Gifu, Osaka and Kansai Area. Several Airline Companies like JAL, NipponAir and JetStar were also present in the event. They made more affordable tour packages if travelers book on the day of the event. They offer colored brochures and magazines which show clear pictures of the tourist destinations. They also hand out freebies if you “like” their Facebook page. The booth attendants are very friendly and helpful in explaining how beautiful the places in Japan are. The Japanese booths are popular because of the large number of people interested in travelling to Japan who are also hoping to get an affordable deal. This event is a great opportunity for both businesses and for private customers who love to travel!
