ATTAP celebrates 25th Induction Ceremonies at Clark Marriott

Understanding that the COVID19 pandemic wreaked havoc on our tourism industry, the Alliance of Travel and Tours Agencies of Pampampanga (ATTAP) proves their resilience as they celebrated their 25th Induction Ceremonies at the Clark Marriott Ballroom last March 2022.

Ms. Leonido and Ms. Mandap, Swissotel Clark Representatives as one of the sponsors of the ceremony.

It was momentous again to see again the people behind Pampanga’s tourism aspect from different sectors in this big gathering, celebrating their victories amidst being torn by the health crisis. The program started with a Business-to-Business event where sellers and buyers exchange more than pleasantries but built a strong linkage with each other to face again the ever-changing landscape of tourism.

Ms Marcia Hernandez, ATTAP Vice President, has shared with the convention the idea of focusing on and strengthening domestic tourism. Ms. Hernandez also mentioned focusing on the good things that happened in the travel industry.

The keynote speaker, Mr. Roberto Alabado III of the Department of Tourism, gave his main message stressing that sustaining the efforts is made easier when we talk. He also mentioned that the travel industry in our country jumpstarted last February 10, 2022, when we started accepting foreign tourists.

The ever supportive DOT III Regional Director, Ms. Carolina Uy shared also the latest updates and activities of the department with the help of the private sector.

Another touching moment of the event is when Ms. Christina Garcia, the past president of ATTAP, emotionally shared her journey in the travel industry. She could not thank enough her mentors and leaders that moulded to a strong leader and became one of the active keypersons in the Pampanga Tourism Landscape.

Ms. Pam Guzman of Ecozone Travel and Tours, gave her message to the plenary as the newly elected President of ATTAP, with pride and enthusiasm to bring the association to its more active state. I find her to be energetic and sociable.
