She said, “The activity is a fruitful result of Thailand’s participation in the WTM Latin America 2014, which was held from 23-25 April, at the Transamerica Expocentre in Sao Paolo, Brazil, during which a TAT high-level delegation had brokered the possibility of Braztoa arranging for its annual general meeting to be held in Thailand. We are very pleased and honoured that our effort has materialised into this Braztoa Fam Trip and Strategic Trade Meet in Thailand this week.”

The Braztoa Fam Trip and Strategic Trade Meet 2015 brings 36 participants, comprising 24 decision-making executives from Brazil’s major tour operators and two journalists, as well as 10 accompanying persons, for a showcase of Thai tourism products and services in Bangkok, Phuket, and Chiang Mai.

In each destination, delegates will get the chance to experience first-hand Thailand’s unique services and attractions and discuss prospect business deals with Thai tourism business operators.
