The International Travel Expo Ho Chi Minh City (ITE HCMC) next week is expected to host 300 foreign travel companies seeking cooperative business opportunities in Vietnam.
The event, scheduled for September 7 to 9, will host businesses from many of Vietnam’s target markets for visiting tourists, including the US, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, China, and Japan, the municipal tourism department said on Thursday.
“During the expo, international tour organizers will be made aware of business opportunities within Vietnam. We’ll also host an introduction session about Ho Chi Minh City,” department head La Quoc Khanh told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.
Participants will also be presented with several programs showcasing tour packages and tourism products from popular Vietnamese destinations such as Ho Chi Minh City, the Me Kong Delta, Da Lat, Ninh Thuan, Phan Thiet, and Ha Long, Khanh added.
The 2017 ITE HCMC is themed “Key to tourism in Asia,” and will host tourism companies from 18 countries and territories, a 15 percent increase from last year.
