In a letter sent by DOT Regional Director Maria O. Ravanilla, the DOT-Bicol requested the PGA to be the lead agency in this endeavor and manage the AlMaSor Pavilion information counter to cater to guests making inquiries about the three provinces during the three-day event.
AlMaSor is a collaborative tourism promotion effort of the provinces of Albay, Masbate and Sorsogon.
It has recently been making waves in the local tourism industry as well as in the international tourism market ever since this brainchild of Salceda was set into motion.
Aside from the tourism officers and employees from the PGA, the DOT-Bicol has also invited DOT-accredited tour operators from the AlMaSor area to help market and sell Bicol tour packages, particularly those that highlight Albay and AlMaSor destinations.
This year’s Travel Mart is the 25th rendition of the yearly event, marking its silver anniversary and making it the longest-running travel trade exhibition in the Philippines.
It is also regarded as the biggest travel trade exhibition in the promotion and marketing of domestic and inbound tourism in the country.
To mark this significant milestone, the Philippine Tour Operators Association -- the biggest association of tour operators and agencies that promote exclusively domestic and inbound tourism, as operators and organizer, promised that the 25th Philippine Travel Mart will be the biggest and most meaningful staging of the event."--by Connie B.
