Sarawak Tourism Board At ASEAN Travel Forum

KUCHING, Friday – The Sarawak Tourism Board is participating in the 36th ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) for the Travel Exchange (TRAVEX) event being held in Singapore on January 18 to 20.

ATF is a regional cooperative effort between ASEAN countries held annually to build and strengthen relations between the different sectors in the ASEAN tourism industry, as well as attract more tourists from non-ASEAN countries.

TRAVEX is the longest running ASEAN leisure travel trade event, providing an opportunity for 1600 delegates with 500 exhibitions to present their tourism products and services to the potential buyers and industry key players.

The interconnectivity of ASEAN-member countries creates a unique marketing advantage in packaging and promoting tourism to outside countries, and TRAVEX embraces that advantage.

The Board is attending and representing Sarawak with tour information and packages from different tour agencies throughout Sarawak.

With a business-to-business appointment structure, providing 15-minute appointment between buyers and sellers, the Board will be providing appointments for industry partners during TRAVEX such as Merdeka Palace Hotel Suites, Kuching Holidays Car Rental and Minda Nusantara Tours Travel Agencies, Miri.

The Board hopes to take this opportunity to open new networking opportunities, maintain old ones, as well as gain insight on the future of ASEAN tourism as a whole.

As one of the oldest and well-established tour and travel forums in the region, the Board considers the ATF and all its facets as an important Trade Fair for 2017.
