Guam strengthens Taiwan tourism market

Posted: May 18, 2018 5:30 PM Updated:

GVB participated at the Taipei Tourism Expo (TTE), which is considered Taiwan's largest travel fair during the first half of the year. With nearly 300,000 attendees and 350 exhibitors, Guam's delegation teamed up with Marianas Visitors Authority and the Palau Visitors Authority, to form the first-ever "Micronesia Pavillion".

Thousands were drawn to the cultural performances, and local music legends Jesse and Ruby. The Micronesia exhibitors highlighted social media and travel package incentives to Guam, Saipan, and Palau. GVB says they are working with local partners and airlines in Taiwan.

In the last fiscal year, 36,000 Taiwanese visited Guam. GVB says these numbers may increase as China Airlines recently expanded their flight frequency to five times weekly between Guam and Taipei.
