The PH Gears Up for 2020 WTM Virtual

by | 5 Nov, 2020 | Travel Industry Updates

The Philippine tourism industry is all abuzz, both in the local and international front.

The Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) Philippines, the marketing and promotions arm of the Department of Tourism (DOT), gears up for this year’s World Travel Market (WTM) set on November 09-11 in London, ready to join the international travel industry players.

Continually serving its patriotic duty to restart tourism, the TPB aims to maintain the Philippines’ presence in the market and stay abreast with the latest developments in the industry.

Philippines’ continuous participation at the WTM is salient in sustaining the country’s presence in the international travel and tourism arena and generating interest from European industry partners. A big number of Philippine Sellers specialising in the British/European markets is attending the virtual event to prepare and roll out the Philippine programs once the country reopens to foreign leisure travellers.

The TPB has also been tirelessly working with local government agencies and tourism stakeholders to plot the industry’s journey to recovery. For instance, after identifying low-impact areas as “tourism bubbles” to gradually resume safe travel, the go-signal has been given to open Boracay, Baguio, Bohol, Palawan (El Nido and Coron), Ilocos Norte, and

Batangas for diving to be followed soon by other destinations such as Ilocos Sur, and La Union. Also recently launched was the Ridge to Reef Corridor Plan which allows seamless travel within Baguio, La Union, Pangasinan, Ilocos Sur, and Ilocos Norte.

Eager to restart tourism in the context of the New Normal, the Philippines commits to giving memorable experiences. All these as we encourage travelers to dream and #WakeUpInPH when you calendar your future vacation in our beautiful archipelago.
