MTF 2020 shifts dates


The Mekong Tourism Office will unpack its conference goodies earlier this year as the dates for the annual Mekong Tourism Forum in Bagan, Myanmar, move to 28 to 29 April.

Traditionally, the forum adopts a mid -May time slot but this time around the host, the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, shifted the event by more than a week to escape the threat of rain.

It wasn’t the only revision for the Mekong region’s top event the other being the decision to relocate the forum venue from Mandalay to Bagan after UNESCO added the ancient town to its World Heritage list.

The more than 150 International delegates who annually head for the MTF to network and talk tourism strategies, will need to book direct flights to either Yangon or Mandalay to connect with domestic services to Bagan.
