SINGAPORE, 12 October, 2017: Worldwide Events, a leading B2B trade show organiser will partner with Tourism Authority of Thailand to host “Amour Asia Pacific” in Bangkok, 14 to 17 February 2018.
Amour is an invite-only romance travel trade event that brings together the most romantic travel brands and global buyers of romance travel to meet and network.
The specialised show was launched in Venice, earlier this year, and will be rolled out in two new markets – Bangkok, Thailand and Monte Carlo, Monaco in early 2018.
Designed to support networking and business discussions, Amour focuses on the upscale romance travel market, creating a community of destination wedding planners, honeymoon curators and romance travel designers. TAT touts the show as tool to establish Bangkok as a hub of romance travel in the region.
“Wedding and honeymoon travel is one of the top drivers of tourism in Thailand and we have been working on a number of initiatives to position ourselves as the ‘romance hub’ of Asia Pacific”, said TAT governor, Yuthasak Supasorn.
With the inaugural Amour Asia Pacific scheduled for Thailand in 2018, international romance travel designers and wedding planners will have the chance to learn more about the country’s products and services targeting romance travel as well as meet and discuss business prospects.
They will also have the opportunity to experience first hand the variety of romance products and services available in major Thai destinations such as Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi, Ko Samui and Chiang Mai.
Worldwide Events CEO, Richard Barnes said: “We are bringing the world’s most influential travel buyers to Asia for a ground-breaking trade event that celebrates the romance travel sector. We are thrilled that Thailand will be hosting Amour as it’s the beating heart of the romance travel sector in Asia and has been unanimously cited by our buyers as one of their essential destinations.”
The inaugural Amour – Europe Edition, was held in Venice, earlier this year, where a survey showed that 87% of the buyers chose Thailand for weddings and romance trips and 79% listed Thailand in their top 10 destinations for 2018.
“With the high-end luxury romance travel sector predicted to continue to outpace the growth of mainstream travel, Amour will give suppliers throughout Asia Pacific the opportunity to tap into this lucrative market,” added Richard Barnes.
