Connecting the Philippines & U.S. Travel, Trade, & Consumer Markets Together

Asian Journal Launches Multi-City Events Showcasing Tourism, Trade, and Business Opportunities in the USA and Philippines

In an effort to connect the US and Philippine markets together, the Asian Journal, in cooperation with the Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT) and Trade and Industry (DTI), is organizing multi-city “Travel, Trade, and Consumer Roadshows” on August 4-5, 2018 at the Southbay Pavilion Mall in Carson, California.

The Multi-City Travel, Trade, and Consumer Marketing Roadshows (TTC) aim to promote the Philippines and showcase the country’s tourist destinations, culture, food, and local products. These events also intend to propel business-to-business and government-to-business marketing as well as activate brand engagement between businesses and consumers.

Aside from having industry leaders from both the public and private sector such as Secretary of the Department of Tourism, Wanda Teo as keynote speakers, the events will also have lots of food, music, and prizes — a fun festivity not only for Filipino-Americans to enjoy, but also mainstream Americans as well.

“We are greatly looking forward to our Travel, Trade, and Consumer Multi-City Roadshows in 2018. We see this as an incredible opportunity for businesses both in the USA and Philippines to connect not only with our core audience, the fast growing, prosperous Filipino-American market, but also the mainstream American market based in Los Angeles and Orange County through our event at the Southbay Pavilion Mall in Carson, California which is the destination for 2.5 million Americans in the greater Los Angeles region.”

Further, Mr. Oriel said, “With TTC, we are providing our clients with yet another unique, cost efficient opportunity to further grow their business. And we strongly believe that providing the public and private sector with the opportunity to network together face-to-face will prove to be significantly beneficial and productive for ultimately the betterment of society.”
