Visitors will also be treated to flair bartending, a food demo, and pocket performances by notable Filipino artists.

“With experiential travel as one of the biggest travel trends in this post-pandemic period, our goal is to immerse visitors in the unique Filipino brand. The heart and soul of our people and the stories we fight to keep alive. Wellness, sustainability, design, culture and tradition are just some of the many components that come with our most recent travel packages. Coupled with our sun, beach and dive destinations, adventure tours, colorful festivals, and a mélange of culinary delights, we have high hopes for the Philippines to be a top of mind destination,” said TPB Chief Operating Officer Maria Margarita Montemayor Nograles.

This year’s edition of WTM is not only expected to benefit the global travel industry but also restore travel confidence. Hundreds of exhibitors, industry leaders, motivational speakers, and international celebrities are also taking part in the event.
