Routes Asia to take place in Vietnam for the first time

Published on : Saturday, October 16, 2021


Routes Asia will take place in Vietnam for the first time in 2022, with Da Nang People’s Committee, Da Nang Department of Tourism and IPP Travel Retail being selected as the hosts of the 16th annual route development forum.

Informa Markets creates platforms for industries and specialist markets to trade, innovate and grow.

They provide customers and partners around the globe with opportunities to engage, experience and do business through face-to-face exhibitions, specialist digital content and actionable data solutions.

As the world’s leading exhibitions organiser, it brings a diverse range of specialist markets to life, unlocking opportunities and helping them to thrive 365 days of the year.

Over the past three years, more than 400 new air services across the Asia-Pacific region have been connected to meetings at Routes events.

As the only dedicated route development event that unites decision makers across the entire region, Routes Asia will deliver a platform for airlines, airports and tourism authorities to develop strategies that will rebuild air connectivity across Asia-Pacific.

Le Trung Chinh, Chairman of Da Nang People’s Committee, said that Routes Asia will provide a golden opportunity to promote inbound tourism opportunities and drive the socio-economic growth for the city.

By hosting the event, they will proactively position Da Nang as a hub for entrepreneurship, innovation, logistics, finance and culture.

Speaking at World Routes, Steven Small, Director of Routes, said that they are very excited to be working with Da Nang People’s Committee and their strategic partners to bring Routes Asia to the city in 2022.

Routes Asia will play an integral part in Da Nang achieving its ambitious master plan to become the socio-economic centre of the country by 2045.

Da Nang International Airport has a capacity of 12 million passengers along with modern facilities and considerate customer services.

In 2019, the airport welcomed over 30 airlines operating 40 routes to/from 11 Asian countries and territories.

Although pandemic-related travel restrictions have inevitably curtailed growth, the outlook for air traffic in the region remains strong, giving authorities in Da Nang the confidence to push ahead with a series of airport infrastructure investments designed to increase capacity to 28 million passengers and 200,000 tons of cargo per year by 2030.

While increasing tourism is a priority for Da Nang, achieving growth in a sustainable way is at the heart of the city’s strategy. It was awarded the title National Green City 2017-18 by the World Wide Fund for Nature- one of only 21 cities globally- and is targeting a 25% cut in greenhouse gas emissions compared with 2016 levels.

Routes Asia 2022 will take place on 6-8 June in Da Nang, Vietnam.

Five ‘regional’ route development forums are held between February and December in the Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa/Middle East and Silk Road/Russian Commonwealth, and the flagship World Routes event is taking place between 10-12 October 2021.

The events revolve around pre-scheduled meetings and an exhibition and conference which are delivered in partnership with host stakeholders.

Hosts tend to be a collaboration between airports, tourism authorities and investment partners (the bidding process takes place two to three years before the event takes place).

Aviation Week Network, a division of Informa plc, is the largest multimedia information and services provider for the global aviation, aerospace, and defence industries, serving 1.7 million professionals around the world.
