The booth at VITM 2017
A wide range of activities will be held within the framework of the event to encourage and support businesses in accessing and utilising opportunities in the digital technology era.
Mr. Vu The Binh, vice president of the VITA, said online tourism around the world is being driven by developments in science and technology and Vietnamese tourism cannot be an outsider. It must harness modern technologies in order to help visitors review and choose services easily.
At this year’s event, businesses will showcase a range of technological products suitable for tourism to encourage travel agents to employ such technologies, said Mr Binh. The organizing board hopes to use the fair to prove that the tourism sector can be a pioneering area in the roll out of state-of-art technologies, he added.
The VITM Ha Noi 2018 will have two main contents: the online pavilion area with the participation of around 10 businesses involved in online tourism, and a talk on online tourism, the inevitable trend of tourism in Viet Nam.
As a further incentive to attend, more than 40,000 discount air tickets and 15,000 discount package tours will be on offer at the fair.
Around 650 businesses from 18 countries and territories, as well as from 43 provinces and cities nationwide have so far registered to take part in the VITM Ha Noi 2018.
