Pinoy Trekker | Travel: We’re back in full color | A lesson in Humanities 1, way back in college, says that between black and white lies the shade of gray. True enough, in life, there could never be just black and white. And the good news is we love living in full color. That’s why every one of us loves traveling primarily because we want to feel and see different sights in all colors!
After almost three years, traveling is back and Travel Madness Expo (TME), now in its 10th year, has aptly taken the theme, “Travel: We’re back in full color!”
Happening on June 30-Jul 2, 2023, at the SMX Convention Center Manila, at the Mall of Asia Compound in Pasay City, the 2023 Travel Madness Expo, still boasts to be the source for the best travel deals as it used to do in the last nine years.
Travel madness and best deals ever
Travel Innovators Inc. is the organizer of Travel Madness Expo, one of the biggest travel and trade fairs in the Philippines. The madness for travel continues since it was first staged in 2012. A surprise phenomenal hit that time, TME generated some 40,000 visitors and guests, and enabled an international credit card company to rake in PHP20 million worth of business in just three days!
TME’s successful display of destinations and cultures from around the world in the past years brought about strong support from the travel industry making it a must-visit trade show for travel enthusiasts.
Lending her years of experience and expertise in travel is Maria Paz Alberto as Chairperson for this year’s TME and Vice President of Travel innovators Inc. Alberto is also the President of Ark Travel Express, Inc., a duly licensed travel agency by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Department of Tourism (DOT).
“We intend to make tourism a year-round affair as always. And if that’s not madness enough, I don’t know what to call it anymore: most of our members are both inbound and outbound travel specialists that boost Philippine tourism. TME helps ensure that foreign carriers will keep on coming back to bring us, tourists, by loading their return flights with passengers,” she said.
“We want to see the Philippines become a travel hub in this part of the world, and make tourism an economic growth engine, a medium of international understanding, and a driver of world peace. That’s why we bring the entire national and international tourism industry under one roof where business is fun!” she added,
