Dear our distinguished PTM Delegates,
On behalf of Pacific Asia Travel Association and our host, Department of Tourism and Tourism Promotions Board of the Philippines, we would like to express our appreciation to all sellers, buyers, Media, sponsors and supporting organizations for your valuable contribution to PATA Travel Mart 2012.
For this year in Manila, 454 seller delegates representing 233 organisations had booked almost 3,000 square metres of floor space. Of 233 seller organisations, 93 were first-time sellers to the Mart. In total, some 29 seller destinations (countries and territories) were present. PATA Travel Mart had also attracted 304 buyer delegates from 287 organisations across 52 countries and territories. There were 85 journalists attending from 14 source markets. Some 94 buyers were first-timers to the Mart. The 500+ trade visitors on the last day of the mart kept the hall bustling with added business discussions and activities.
We thank you for being a part of this year’s exciting event. We want you to know that your participation was sincerely valued. Going forward, if you have any feedback or comments, please let us know. We’ve already begun working on next year’s events and we value your feedback!!
Thank you very much and see you again at PTM2013, Chengdu.
