During the 3-day event, PT&amp;I China was joined by representatives from the Embassies of Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia and Papua New Guinea, as well as Air Nuigini. The PT&amp;I team had about thirty face to face meetings with tourism industry partners and media and met with hundreds of tourists.

In terms of consumer promotion, PT&amp;I China has launched a series of dive themed workshops in three leading outbound tourism markets - Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
