ITE HCMC 2016 – OPPORTUNITY FOR CA MAU TOURISM TO ACCESS INTERNATIONAL INBOUND TRAVEL MARKET
As a unit of implementing tourism information and promotion activities as well as supporting the development of Ca Mau province’s tourism market and products, Ca Mau Province Tourism Information and Promotion Center identifies International Travel Expo Ho Chi Minh City (ITE HCMC) in 2016 as an opportunity for provincial tourism industry to access international inbound travel market , so as to improve the quality of local tourism products and meet trends of the industry.
In order to enhance Vietnam tourism’s position in the international arena, there is a need to focus on tourism promotion and product marketing to international tourists and business partners. This is especially necessary for Mekong Delta tourism, which is assessed to own many attractive tourism resources in line with the tastes of international travelers.
Ca Mau has increasingly become a key destination of Mekong Delta region. Over time, together with the country’s efforts to overcome the industry challenges, Ca Mau tourism has achieved remarkable results. In 2015, Ca Mau province welcomed 21,050 international tourist arrivals and 965,500 domestic arrivals, bringing the total number of tourists to Ca Mau up to 986,550 arrivals, reaching VND 300 billion revenue, increasing by 7.57% in volume and 9.01% in value compared to the previous year. However, international market appeals to be a potentially new segment, promising to bring a new breeze for Ca Mau tourism.

This is exceptionally essential in 2016 when Ho Chi Minh Road to Dat Mui has technically opened, facilitating an even higher number of international tourists to Ca Mau Cape.
ITE HCMC is a importantly strategic event of Vietnam tourism industry which Ca Mau province has defined as a chance to introduce and promote local tourism products access and develop international inbound market.
