Ooredoo Maldives has signed up as the title sponsor of Travel Trade Maldives (TTM) 2019.
TTM is the largest platform connecting the travel trade community of the Maldives to the global network of travel professionals.
The third edition of the first and largest international trade show in the Maldives will take place from June 11–23, with multiple events taking place at different venues, including capital Male and resorts. The first event, TTM Travel Summit will focus on travel technology and analytics — a topic that will help the travel industry get acquainted with the potential of analytics, dynamic pricing and AI in delivering exceptional customer service and maximising profit.
“This exclusive platform and this year’s focus on ‘Travel Technology & Analytics’, greatly aligns with our commitment to Digital Maldives, as well as our efforts to support the digital transformation and growth of the tourism industry. It is our pleasure to continue our partnership with Orca Media Group, and take our support to TTM to the next level,” Najib Khan, Managing Director and CEO of Ooredoo Maldives, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
Over 100 resorts and hotels from the Maldives have confirmed their participation in TTM 2019. More than 250 international buyers and media professionals will attend the show. Premium Exhibitors include Adaaran Resorts, Kaimoo Hotels, Crown & Champa Resorts, Bandos Maldives, and Villa Hotels & Resorts.
Meanwhile, the second Maldives Supplier Expo will take place from June 12-13 in capital Male. More than 50 suppliers will have one-on-one prescheduled meetings with over officials from procurement, accounts, finance, and F&B departments of over 100 resorts from the Maldives.
TTM 2019 will host its third annual gala night on June 13 at Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi resort.
“Ooredoo is a visionary brand that has remained steadfast in their support for the achievement of the nation’s goals and economic growth. As a fellow ally of the tourism industry of Maldives in reaching a target of 2.5 million tourists by the end of 2025, its strong contribution to the success of the biggest and largest travel trade show in the Maldives is a great way to support the cause,” Dr Hussain Sunny Umar, Chief Executive Officer of event organiser Orca Media Group, said.
TTM, which was launched in 2017 by local PR firm Maldives Getaways (now known as Orca Media Group), aims to facilitate the tourism industry of Maldives to reach the ultimate target of two million tourists per year with over USD 3.5 billion in receipts by the end of 2020.
