The 31st Travel Tour Expo (TTE) 2024, along with the ninth International Travel Trade Expo 2024, is happening from Feb. 2 to 4 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, Pasay City. 

Hosted by the Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA), TTE 2024 is a showcase of the strides made by the Philippine tourism and hospitality industries, offering exclusive deals and packages for both domestic and international trips.

PTAA President, Evangeline Tankiang-Manotok, CPA, MPA, notes that the post-pandemic era has sparked a resurgence in travel enthusiasm, with many seeking to make up for lost time. This renewed interest in travel is expected to be a lasting trend.

“This renewed eagerness to travel, to live life and experience other places and cultures is definitely long-term,” says Tankiang-Manotok.

Patria T. Chiong, TTE 2024 Chairperson, emphasizes the continued importance of travel agencies in providing personalized service and human connection. Travel agencies are not just intermediaries; they serve as expert travel advisors, offering assistance for issues like misconnections, missing luggage, and insurance.

“Digital platforms have made travel more accessible, convenient, and personalized. But travel agencies offer people-to-people connection, a more personalized service,” Chiong adds.

With over 200 exhibitors and 702 booths, TTE 2024 anticipates drawing a crowd of 100,000 travel enthusiasts. The booths will feature airlines, domestic and international travel agencies, tour operators, hotels, resorts, cruise liners, and more. The event will serve as a launchpad for new destinations, affordable tours, transportation options, tailor-fit accommodations, and various payment choices.

Sponsored by the Tourism Promotions Board, Union Bank of the Philippines, AirSwift Transport, Inc., Philippine Airlines, TIEZA, PLDT, and Taiwan Tourism Bureau, the entrance ticket costs are P85.00 for general admission and P65.00 for senior citizens.
