Mr Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said “The TTM+ 2022 will be an excellent opportunity, as the country’s flagship annual tourism event always is, for buyers and sellers to come together and build on existing business relationships and forge new ones. Significantly, the event will include a focus on Thailand’s change towards stronger and more sustainable, more responsible tourism growth, a transformation of Thai tourism that maintains the long-standing ‘Amazing Thailand’ branding.”
The TTM+ is Thailand’s most significant annual B2B travel trade event, which has gained a reputation among the Thai and international tourism industries as a “must-attend” event in their calendar. The TTM+ 2022 will provide an excellent platform for all participants, both sellers and buyers, to meet with current and potential business partners, as well as to reinforce their relationship with global travel specialists, introduce, update, and expand their business.
As the premier showcase of Thai tourism, the TTM+ 2022 will showcase travel products, services and experiences from around Thailand under the theme of ‘Visit Thailand Year 2022, Amazing New Chapters’ that promotes Thai cultural values in the ‘from A to Z Amazing Thailand has it all’ concept. This is to inspire travellers from the world over to once again visit Thailand, where they can re-enjoy and enjoy for the first time experiences that are as remarkable and memorable as they are varied.
The programme for the TTM+ 2022 features two full days of buyer/seller appointments on Thursday, 9 June and Friday, 10 June, which follow the registration, opening ceremony, TTM Talk, Thailand Product Update, and welcome reception all scheduled for the first day on Wednesday, 8 June.

About the TTM+
First held in 2001, the TTM+ has gained a well-earned reputation in visitor source markets the world over, and within Thailand’s tourism industry itself, as a ‘must-attend’ event. This year, the TTM+ 2022 is all set to continue the tradition of providing a valuable platform for sellers and buyers to meet with current and potential business partners and to reinforce relationships with global travel specialists and decision-makers.
Held mostly in Bangkok each year since its launch, the TTM+ was relocated to Chiang Mai in 2016-17, Pattaya in 2018-19, and then Phuket in 2021 as part of the strategy to promote provincial destinations.
