Travel companies joining the exhibition HCMC Tourism Day wrapping up on Sunday, April 10 say they are happy with the three-day event as many customers have queued up to ask for information or book services.

Many companies such as Ben Thanh Tourist, Saigontourist Travel Services Co., Lien Bang Travelink, and TST Tourist said the number of people buying tours or planning to buy tourism services grew strongly compared to last year’s event.

Tu Quy Thanh, managing director of Lien Bang Travelink, told the Daily that around 5,000 visitors have visited the company’s booth. Of them, 160 people have bought domestic and outbound tours, while 200 other customers have made reservations and promised to pay at the company’s office after the event.

“The number of customers to buy tours was up 50% compared to last year’s event. We had promoted services to customers before the Tourism Day opened to attract them to our booth, and the careful preparation helped us sell products,” he said.

At Saigontourist, around 700 guests have booked outbound and domestic tours compared to slightly over 100 people doing so in the last event.

In addition, about 1,600 people have sought the company’s advice about services especially free & easy tours, promotion programs, and tours for Reunification Day on April 30, said Doan Thi Thanh Tra, marketing director of Saigontourist.

Lai Huu Phuong, director of Ben Thanh Tourist Travel Service Center, said the company is pleased with the event. “We were able to spread our image to potential customers and sell products there.”

He added that in the past, many people just dropped by the company’s booth to take brochures, but this time many visitors booked tours even after the exhibition.

The city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism organized the annual event from last Friday to Sunday, featuring more than 170 booths for 80 travel companies, hotels and restaurants in the city as well as other provinces and cities.
