The Festive PTAA's 22nd Travel Tour Expo 2015

It's a huge success for the Philippine Travel Agencies Association last week, as they held their 22nd Travel Tour 2015 Expo at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay City last February 13-15. This much-awaited expo event is set to encourage and boost the lifestyle of traveling to more Filipino people through reasonably affordable price, not only inside but also outside the country. 

As expected, thousands of trade show visitors participated to capture the best deals from hundreds of participating travel agencies, discounted luxury packages from hotels, resorts & spas. Moreover, exhibit visitors are able to enjoy the prepared activity presentation of participating tourism bureaus.
Below are some of the trade show booth displays and stills taken during this festive travel expo event:
