Sustainable tourism takes center stage in first-ever travel fair in BGC - Travel Street: Philippine Travel Mart’s 1st Green and Gold Tourism Fair

This summer, explore the eco-cultural destinations that will indeed make you say ‘It’s more fun in the Philippines’!


Bonifacio Global City, together with the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) and the Department of Tourism, invites everyone to take part in a unique travel fair that aims to promote sustainable tourism in “Travel Street: Philippine Travel Mart’s 1st Green and Gold Tourism Fair.” 

A first-of-its-kind outdoor travel fair, ‘Travel Street’ will be held at the Globe Iconic Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater, on May 4-6 from 10am to 8pm. The event is sponsored by leading local airline Cebu Pacific.

Check out amazing travel and leisure deals from more than 50 partner airlines, travel agencies and tour operators, hotels and resorts and local government tourism units, and witness performances from local groups, and take part in talks and exhibits that will remind us of our rich Filipino culture and traditions.

Green & Gold Tourism simply means tourism that focuses on ecological and cultural conservation, respectively. These include garden or farm tours, cultural immersions, museum tours, fiestas and festivals, pilgrimage tours, and health and wellness activities. Such endeavors help provide employment and income to locals, gather funds for the improvement of protected areas and sanctuaries, as well as the creation of new and national state parks, recreation areas, beaches, marine and underwater trails, among many other natural attractions.

“BGC is thrilled to bring ‘Travel Street’ to the public, and we believe we have the perfect venue to promote sustainable and responsible tourism, especially to the millennial market. We thank PHILTOA and DOT for this partnership in presenting pristine Philippine destinations,” says Associate City Marketing Manager of BGC, Joanne Magno. 

PHILTOA President Cesar Cruz says “Through this 1st Green and Gold Tourism Fair, we put the focus on sustainable tourism and bring to the public carefully curated eco-cultural tourism products. We hope that with this, we are able to spark renewed interest in other tourism destinations that the Philippines has to offer and of course, raise our tourism revenue.”
