The Vietnam International Tourism Mart is one of the biggest fairs for the local tourism industry, offering opportunities for trade and market expansion. It is hoped to be a big boost for Vietnam’s tourism industry in 2019.

Featuring more than 700 businesses from 27 countries and 47 localities nationwide, the mart is a place to grab holiday deals. Moreover, 100,000 cheap flight tickets and up to 18,000 special-discount tours are available for everyone. This is a crucial time for tour providers to promote their services to larger audiences.

This year’s theme revolves around green tourism to remind people to take an active stance on environment protection, and improve the livelihood of locals in affected areas. This is also a chance for tour providers to promote new ecotourism-centric tourism products with half-price discount.

This year marks the 7th consecutive year VITM has held and it has become a key event for the industry. This year’s fair is bigger than last year both in terms of scale and number of participants.-VNA
