Addressing the event, Vu The Binh, vice chairman of the Vietnam Tourism Association, emphasized that with the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to affect major economic areas globally, especially the tourism industry, VITM Hanoi 2021 is anticipated to help the local tourism industry overcome this challenging period to bounce back on its development track.

According to organizers, approximately 450 travel firms from four countries, including Thailand, the Republic of Korea, Japan, and Taiwan (China), have registered to showcase tourism potential and products at roughly 350 stalls at VITM Hanoi 2021.

Along with activities aimed at stimulating demand, the event is expected to offer an opportunity to allow travel firms to introduce destinations and tourism services through booths, press conferences, and seminars. Furthermore, visitors will also have the opportunity to gain greater insights into special tours for individuals and families through the event.
