27 October 2011 -The Philippine Embassy in Ottawa reported to the Department of Foreign Affairs that Philippine tourism continues to make significant headway in the Canadian market with Philippine participation in the 22nd International Travel and Tourism Show (ITTS) on October 21 to 23 in Montreal.

Consistent with efforts to expand its market presence, the Philippines was among 100 countries represented in the Montreal show that drew in 38,600 potential consumers, 98 percent of whom intend to take a trip within the next 12 months.

“The attendance, 3 percent higher than last year, once again demonstrates Quebecers’ love affair with travel,” the ITTS organizers said.

In a presentation in French on October 22, Tours Hai, a Montreal-based tour operator specializing in Asian and South Pacific destinations, actively marketed the Philippines as “Islands of Magic”, with Manila, Boracay, Cebu and Bohol as featured destinations.

Queries on flights, travel time, air fare and package rates indicated serious interest on the part of seminar participants in exploring options for their next dream vacation.

At the Philippine booth, concrete choices were offered by Atlantis Philippines for a Visayas safari and by Bluewater Resorts for island getaways in Cebu and Bohol.
