Phuket reports successful ITB Asia 2013 RoadshowPhuket Tourist Association President – Ponganan Suwannakarn and Consultant for Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization – Jeerasak TorThip recently led a large number of Phuket’s hotel and tourism entrepreneurs to ITB Asia 2013 which was held at Singapore’s Suntec Convention & Exhibition Center from 22nd – 26th October 2013. ITB Asia is seen by many as the leading trade show for the Asian travel market.

Khun Ponganan said “Phuket’s attendance at ITB Asia 2013 has received a very good response. Representatives from a number of European agencies visit this event meaning that Phuket business have an opportunity to showcase their products to them without having to travel to Europe, which can be costly. It is because Phuket’s main focal point is it being a resort destination that we have such a high potential and this year we have seen a whole new group of customers from areas such as the Middle East, Mediterranean, China and Philippines.”

Khun Jeerasak added “ITB Asia is one of the main promotional activities for the Asian tourism market, and Phuket is supported at the event by PPAO as it strongly believes that the exhibition will bring more visitors and tourism to Phuket. This trip, especially with the link between ASEAN members for the coming AEC 2015 Administration, we always see the necessity to support.”
