Schedules for Travel Fair for the first half of 2016 are out.
Travel Revolution Fair will once again hold their fair a week ahead of NATAS Fair.
Travel Revolution Fair will be held from 26 to 28 February 2016.
Venue is Marina Bay Sands B2 Expo Hall D, E and F.
Time is 10 am to 9 pm.
Admission is free just like last year.
Like the previous year, major travel companies will be represented at the fair. Among these companies are Chan Brothers Travel, Dynasty Travel, SA Tours, EU Holidays, Super Travel, CTC Travel, CS Travel, Nam Ho Travel and others.
Tourism organisations involved includes Tourism New Zealand, Tourism Authority of Thailand, Australia, Japan and others.
Some airlines will also be there including car rental companies such as Hertz Car Rental and Avis Car Rental and not forgetting Insurance Company AIG.
Credit cards promotion from major banks will be available as well.
Since its launch last year, this fair was a huge success attracting large numbers of visitors. Free admission to the fair might perhaps have helped with boosting visitor numbers.
This year would probably be just as successful with visitor numbers given many major travel companies are still participating at this fair.
NATAS Fair will be held from 4 to 6 March 2016.
The venue is Singapore Expo Hall 7.
Opening hours are from 10 am to 9.30 pm.
Travel companies represented are Jetabout Holidays, Diners World Travel, Airelated Travel, ASA Holidays, Scenic Travel, UOB Travel and others.
A number of cruise companies will be there including Royal Caribbean Cruises, Star Cruises, Costa Cruises , Princess Cruises and others.
Tourism Organisations from Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia and others will have booths there.
Of course travel insurance company AIG will be there as well as Budget Car Rental.
Some hotels and resorts will set up booth at the fair as well.
Admission for NATAS Fair was free last year in conjunction with the SG50 celebration. There is no mention of admission fee yet from NATAS website for this year’s fair. It might continue to keep last year’s free admission to rival the Travel Revolution Fair to keep visitors coming.
So this might be a good time to shop for discounted tours for the mid year school holidays.
Better take advantage of travel insurance offers during the fairs for substantial discounts.
It will be summer up north in the middle of the year. If June holidays sound hot and humid, head south to Australia or New Zealand for a cool holiday. The kids might enjoy it.
With two travel fairs being held twice a year, especially when admission is free, this will only benefit us travel shoppers.
So happy tour shopping …
