Travelers who want to avail themselves of great bargains in their sojourns here and abroad will definitely find great discounts on their plane or cruise fares and even hotel/resort bookings by going to the 21st Travel Tour Expo (TTE) to be held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City from February 14 to 16.
The TTE, organized by the Philippine Travel Agencies Association and hosted by the Department of Tourism, Philippine Airlines and Citibank is touted to be bigger and with a more diverse exhibitors coming from the travel, hospitality and entertainment industries here and abroad.
With theme “Love Life Love Travel,” the TTE is by far the biggest in terms of exhibition area, and will have the most diverse line-up of participants since the event was conceived in 1994.
TTE 2014 is a much-awaited event among individuals, groups and companies wanting to avail of huge discounts in exciting travel destinations from airlines, hotels and resorts and even cruise lines. Philippine Star is the official media partner.
The DOT is the official co-presentor in the TTE while PAL is the official carrier and Citibank is the official credit card company of the event. PAL is occupying a major portion of the Function Room 5 at the second floor of SMX.

This year’s TTE will occupy Halls 1 to 4 at the ground floor of SMX and the Function Room 5 at the upper floor, for a total floor area of 11,480 square meters.
Quite interestingly, the participation of foreign airlines did not just expand in terms of number but also in the sizes of their booths, largely encouraged by the overflow crowds that attended last year’s TTE.
