TTC Travel Mart Tourism Exchange Held, Participated by African-Russian Sellers


The Business to Business (BtoB) tourism exchange, TTC Travel Mart 2024 was attended by 109 tours and travel from various parts of the world, from Africa to Russia.

TTC Travel Mart, which is entering its 39th implementation, succeeded in bringing in 109 sellers from various parts of the world, with a total of 700 buyers from various regions in Indonesia.

The sellers, namely global tour and travel companies, will exchange transactions with travel agents from Indonesia. Many old sellers are still participating in this event. Not a few new sellers have arrived.



Kidung Pascalis, Project Manager of TTC Indonesia, said that the event, which is held twice a year, has produced a very positive trend.

“For several countries from Asia, there are only Japan, China and Vietnam. The Balkan countries are also present. Vietnam and Thailand have also increased their sales. Apart from being a popular destination for Indonesian tourists, the existence of direct flights from Jakarta has become a trigger for state travel agencies. “They are taking part in the TTC this time,” said Kidung in his statement, Tuesday (5/3/2024).

Many new destinations are being offered, for example Eastern European countries with Russia and Georgia as new participants. South Africa was also present at this event.

“From these facts, we can see that Indonesia is still an important and attractive market for foreign countries, so it is important for TTC Indonesia to bridge sellers and buyers to meet and introduce their respective needs,” added Kidung.

For the first semester of 2024, TTC Travel Mart will be held in Jakarta and Surabaya. Meanwhile, for the second semester of 2024, the 40th TTC Travel Mart will be held in Jakarta and Makassar.

Meanwhile, Aris Gunawan, Indonesian Representative for Russian Tour, explained that the Russian Tour travel agency is here to attract Indonesian tourists again amidst negative issues with Ukraine which are less profitable.

In fact, this issue only occurs in the border area between Russia and Ukraine. In fact, there are still many interesting tourist destinations in Russia that are safe and comfortable for tourists to visit.

“We also want to inform Indonesian tourists that currently making a visit visa has been made easier. A visit visa can be made online and only takes between four to five days,” explained Aris.

Nining Hadiwijojo, Sales and Product Developer Manager for South Africa Travel, added that 400 Indonesian tourists come to South Africa a year.

Some of the destinations that are commonly visited in South Africa are the National Park Wildlife Africa, as well as religious tourism following Sheikh Yusuf from Makassar, South Sulawesi, who succeeded in spreading the message of Islam in the country.

“Currently, every month there are 20-22 Indonesian tourists who come there. To explore South Africa it takes 7 days and 6 nights, and costs range between IDR 40-50 million, including the plane and visiting a number of selected destinations,” concluded Nining.
