TTM consists of four components: prescheduled meetings, TTM Travel Summit, Maldives Supplier Expo, and a gala night.
Prescheduled meetings offer a platform where industry professionals are provided with the opportunity to meet and interact with world-renowned travel agents and tour operates and allow them to grow their businesses within one of the most lucrative and leading travel destinations in the world.
The Maldives Supplier Expo, which was held for the first time in 2018, is an invitation-only event, where exhibiting companies can meet key decision makers, including engineering directors, head chefs, procurement managers and chief financial officers from all over the Maldives. Exhibitors and visitors can pre-schedule meetings via a special software before the event, giving potential buyers an excellent opportunity to get an overview of offers in the industry.
TTM Travel Summit is an invitation-only event that brings together thought leaders, stakeholders and senior decision-makers from the Maldives tourism industry. This year’s summit will focus on “Travel Technology and Analytics,” which will help the travel industry to unleash analytics, dynamic pricing, digital and AI potential to deliver unstoppable customer loyalty and profit.
Meanwhile, the Gala Night is an invite-only gathering featuring an elegant multi-cultural banquet, live music and the chance to network with industry stakeholders.
