  Sizzling Deals and an Enthusiastic Crowd Heated Up NATAS Jo urneys Summer 2010


The first of two additional fairs which NATAS will be organizing in 2010, NATAS Journeys Summer 2010 was a resounding success with enthusiastic travelers booking at the fair.


With 27 exhibitors offering a range of products and services, the two-day fair at Suntec Singapore Hall 601 drew packed crowds in search of travel arrangements for last minute getaways.


Exhibitors were very happy with the strong travel demand and NATAS is encouraged by the response to the fair. Mr. Robert Khoo , CEO of NATAS said, “Looks like the NATAS Jo urneys Winter show scheduled for October will definitely see an increase in member participation, venue size and crowd”


Ms Eileen Oh, VP, Leisure of UOB Travel Planners Pte Ltd had this to say: “We were pleasantly surprised by the encouraging turnout at the NATAS Jo urneys Summer travel fair last weekend. The fair was aptly organized to cater to the stragglers who may have missed the bigger fair in February; more than half of our bookings were for the June school holidays. The recent strengthening of the Singapore dollar has also spurred even more Singaporeans to take advantage of the favorable currency and head for a short beach break or go on a shopping vacation with summer sales around the world.“


Another exhibitor, Commonwealth Travel Service Corporation's Senior Vice President (Marketing & PR), Ms Alicia Seah said, “The crowd was overwhelming and we saw a lot of bookings beyond the June holidays. NATAS Jo urneys Summer was a very good sales platform for us to push last minute seats as well as bookings.”


The two-day fair was meant to cater to travellers who might have missed the first NATAS travel fair, TRAVEL 2010 in February or who might not have firmed up their travel plans in time for the earlier fair. This fair will also allow travellers to make last minute bookings for the June holidays.


The official sponsors of NATAS Journeys Summer 2010 were MasterCard and Travel Guard Chartis.


The next NATAS travel fair, NATAS Holidays 2010 will be held from 27-29 August 2010 at the Singapore Expo.
