The exhibitors will have chance to take part in B2B meetings where they can introduce their latest tourist products and services and seek partnerships with localities and businesses at home and abroad.
 
A range of activities will also be staged during the event, including a national forum entitled ‘Vietnam’s tourism: Change for Development’, an ACMECS (Ayeyawady-Chao Phraya-Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy) forum on tourism promotion in northeast Asian markets, the award ceremony for the Vietnam Tourism Association Awards 2019, and arts performances.
