The travel festival you've been waiting for has arrived in Metro Cebu with this year's theme: "Don't Dream, Just Go".
Now on its 3rd year, the Cebu's International Travel Festival (ITF) will once again showcase and bring together over a hundred exhibitors from different travel-related services in the country such as hotels, resorts, tour operators, theme parks, airlines, travel insurance on July 15-17, 2016 at Ayala Center Cebu "that aptly invites the consumers to discover and re-discover how two worlds collide: domestic and foreign destinations."
Organized by My Eventology Co., the International Travel Festival is said to be the biggest and most awaited travel fair in Visayas and Mindanao to date. The event is in cooperation with the Department of Tourism and supported by Tourism Promotion Board Philippines (TPBPH), the Province of Cebu, and Philippine Airlines with special participation of Ayala Center Cebu, BPI, Alcordo, Globe myBusiness, and ABS-CBN Cebu.
“We are happy to note that our visitor rate has grown steadily and that we have provided positive results to our participating exhibitors,” said Stephanie Villahermosa, ITF project director. In addition (Through ITF), "This regional tourism show has truly become a true meeting point for tourism practitioners and local consumers as it allows them to discover new destinations and the latest travel trends. Happy too that our visitor rate is growing steadily and the icing on the cake? The show gained a positive sales effect to all exhibitors beyond the 3-day event but throughout the year! This local trade-show has enabled them to reinforce the relationship of proximity to their clients."
