MVA joins Taipei Tourism Expo 2019

(MVA) — The Marianas Visitors Authority joined 300 other exhibitors at the Taipei Tourism Expo 2019 on May 17-20, 2019, sharing information on the Marianas with tour operators, travel agents, travel industry professionals, and the general public.

The international expo, held at the Taipei World Trade Center, included 1,097 booths, attracted nearly 310,000 visitors, and served as a platform for tour operators, travel agents, and travel industry professionals.

“This is MVA’s sixth year to join the Taipei Tourism Expo, providing us the opportunity to reach this small but active source market,” said MVA Managing Director Priscilla Iakopo.

“Our both was strategically located near both the main entrance and the travel trade agent pavilion, and we maximized the opportunity to distribute information on the Marianas to generate awareness and interest among the travel industry and travelers. The end goal of our Taiwan promotions is to establish direct flights.”
