TravelRave has opened its week-long festival of world-class tourism events, high-level dialogues and industry networking sessions in Singapore.
The event brings together members from the entire travel and tourism industry once again, to exchange strategic insights and knowledge about Asia, the world’s fastest-growing travel region.
In its third year, TravelRave reinforces its position as Asia’s most comprehensive travel trade platform, promising quality Asian-driven content that will help industry professionals deepen their understanding of Asia, and navigate the abundant growth opportunities the region presents.
Delegates can expect a line up of high-calibre speakers who are at the top of their respective industries to deliver the latest knowledge and insights across the TravelRave events.
Despite the challenging economies in Europe and America, the tourism industry in Asia has remained resilient, maintaining its healthy growth rate.
World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) statistics reveal that the number of international tourist arrivals worldwide grew by five per cent during the first half of 2012 to 467 million, with the Asia-Pacific region posting the strongest gains.
Against this favourable backdrop of travel and tourism growth in Asia, TravelRave continues to act as a catalyst to uncover meaningful business opportunities that the private and public sectors can leverage and benefit from.
“With Asia leading the growth of travel and tourism globally, it is timely for the industry to come together to gain a deeper understanding of Asia and discover the opportunities within,” said Lionel Yeo, chief executive of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
“Behind the diverse markets of Asia lie unique demands, motivations, and preferences of increasingly sophisticated Asian consumers.
“Hence, TravelRave is that one platform where travel and tourism industry members can come together to exchange in-depth knowledge that will help to build stronger businesses and inspire the creation of targeted products and services for the Asian market.”
