ATF 2020 TRAVEX ADDS NEW BUYER AND SELLER BUSINESS SPEED-DATING TO PROGRAMME

Singapore, 21 October 2019 – The annually anticipated ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) Travel Exchange (TRAVEX) will add a new business speed-dating component to the 3-day TRAVEX programme from 14 to 16 January.

Held on the first day of TRAVEX (14 January), all attending buyers and sellers will have the opportunity to meet and swap contacts with each other in this fast-paced activity prior to business appointment and exhibition days.

Each delegate can easily expect to exchange at least 60 business contacts during this period. This is on top of their pre-scheduled business appointments over the next 2 days,” said Darren Ng, Managing Director of TTG Asia Media.
