As an ASEAN tourism advocate and Fun Ambassador, I'm very excited to attend the 3rd Philippine Tourism Forum because for the very first time, five secretaries of tourism will gather together to share their thoughts and insights on the state of the industry and what more should be done to grow the tourism business.
DID YOU KNOW that The Department of Tourism reported that earnings generated from tourism activities in the first five months of 2015 grew 2.74%. For May alone, visitor receipts amounted to Php 16.77 billion which is 2.40% higher than the previous year’s earnings of Php 16.38
All five of the secretaries would account for more than two decades of combined experience and their wisdom culled from their experiences, past and present; their sharing will definitely be a great help for us to fully understand the journey of the tourism industry.
The 3rd Philippine Tourism Forum, with the theme THE BUSINESS OF TOURISM: ASEAN AND BEYOND, will be held on on September 3, 2015 at the SMX Convention Center, MOA. This is organized by the Philippine Tour Operators’ Association (PHILTOA) as a pre-event learning activity to set the tone for its Philippine Travel Mart 2015, the biggest annual travel trade exhibition in the promotion and marketing of domestic and inbound tourism, happening on Sept. 4-6 also at SMX.
PHILTOA as its main organizer aims to achieve the following objectives:
PHILTOA is joined and supported by
prestigious organizations namely the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP), the ASEAN Business Advisory Council Philippines (ABAC Phils.), PricewaterhouseCoopers Philippines (PWC) and the Global Leadership Initiatives for Sustainable Tourism (GLIST). This is supported by the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority as part of its initiative to provide business intelligence in the tourism industry and encourage investors for the sector.
Tourism is one of the big contributors to Philippines economy. It is able to generate jobs and cascade the benefits to those who need it most. It is one of the top priority sectors that must be improved to be aligned with the goals of the ASEAN Economic Community that's why this upcoming 3rd Philippine Tourism Forum is a great venue for everyone in the industry to get valuable insights.
