Tour agencies in Myanmar will host International Travel Mart 2017 in Yangon and Mandalay in January to promote outbound tours, local newspaper The Voice reported.
Myanmar Tourism Federation said the event will be held in Mandalay on January 12 and 13 at Diamond Plaza and in Yangon on February 11 and 12 at Rose Garden Hotel.
"Though we mainly focus on outbound tours at the event, there will also be promotion programs on inbound tours," an official from the federation said.
There are over 280 licensed tour operators in Myanmar and they will participate in the event by opening more than 120 booths in Mandalay and about 70 booths in Yangon.
An official from the hotels and tourism ministry said the travel mart is a market promotion for outbound tours as Singapore, Bangkok and Vietnam are very popular among Myanmar tourists.
