“The world’s continents will do business in the Philippines during PTM. Representatives will come from the Americas, the Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa,” said DOT Undersecretary for Planning and Promotions and Philippine Host Organizing Committee Chairman, Daniel G. Corpuz.
“We will have the eyes of the global tourism market and industry on the Philippines during and after PTM as members of the international press and PATA’s own media network cover proceedings,” he said, Undersecretary Corpuz added that PTM was an enormous opportunity to showcase to the travel industry the country’s new brand promise, “ It’s more Fun In the Philippines.”
