The Travel Sale Fair opened its doors to visitors last October 11-13, 2019 at the World Trade Center Hall A-C. It is now on its fifth consecutive year and follows the original format of combining the travel fair alongside the Trendsetter’s Bazaar.
What began as a small independently organized event is now a trendsetter, with its unique on trade fairs. Being the first to combine the travel and fashion sector, the show also markets itself to multiple generations, offering premium and budget travel tiers. As such, Travel Sale Fair consistently brings in high numbers in both exhibitor count and foot traffic.
Travel Sale Fair reaches a milestone
“To be able to reach this hallmark five year anniversary is quite remarkable for us. As we did not have affiliations with any single association, we had flexibility to take risks. It was daunting at first, but our decisions have all proved fruitful in the end,” said Marketing Director, Nicole Go-Cedenio. She also thanked long-time supporters Citibank, Philippine Airlines, Air Asia, Trafalgar and Two Seasons and also welcomed new additions to the show- Royal Brunei Airlines, Marriot, Conrad and Uniorient during the event’s opening ceremonies.
Others also present during the ceremony include DOT Undersecretary for Legal and Chief of Staff Atty. Edwin Enrile; Province of Bohol Governor Arthur C. Yap; Sangguniang Panlalawigan Tourism Committee Chairwoman Jone Jade Bautista, DOT Region 5 Director Mr. Benjamin Santiago, Pasay City Mayor Emi Calixto’s COS Mr. Peter Pardo; Pasay City Councilor of District II Hon. Joey Calixto Isidro; Cagayan Economic Zone Authority’s Police Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr.; Filipino Chinese Chamber of Commerce Inc.’s Mr. Delfin Letran; Philippine Airlines’ Ms. Lorraine Laborte and Ms. Pinky Custodio and Air Asia’s Ms. Grace Cipriano.
Additionally, the Travel Sale Fair also had Kathryn Bernardo on October 12 in an interactive event hosted by the Trendsetter Team at the stage area. With more and more youths traveling, it is no wonder this annual show is one of the most highly anticipated show for the year. It is also the last big travel expo in Manila before the next calendar year.
Show organizers also announced as early as now, the official show date for 2020, which will be on October 9-11, 2020 at the World Trade Center.
