Together with the presence of high-ranking tourism officials from 21 APEC member countries are regional and international tourism organisations, leading travel businesses and hundreds of reporters who will bring the image and trademark of Quang Nam tourism to the APEC community and the world.

The Quang Nam tourism sector has made proper preparations for holding the conference with 575 rooms at luxury hotels and resorts in the Hoi An town. The official meeting of the conference will be organised at the Palm Garden resort and group meetings will take place at Hoi An Beach Resort, Trail Resort, Victoria and Pho Tran restaurant.

The recently-inaugurated Palm Garden is the only five-star seaside resort of Quang Nam province, located in Cua Dai beach in the ancient town of Hoi An. It takes 45 minutes to travel to the resort by car from Da Nang International Airport.

The Resort is landscaped with several unique species of palm and coconut trees, as well as furnished it with selective Vietnamese products of silk, wood, and natural ceramics.

The planning of the Resort with all of its individual bungalows and guest facilities reflects a lifestyle that is calm and soothing. This wonderful ambience of the design and the resort's high standards of service add to a wonderful holiday experience.

The resort’s management board said they had completed a modern hall with 500 seats and many small function rooms to serve the conference.

The National Administration for Tourism and Quang Nam Provincial People’s Committee will co-ordinate to organise an exhibition on “Image of Vietnam Tourism – Hoi An 2006” during the conference.

The exhibition will attract the participation of nearly 100 businesses that do business in fields of Vietnam travel, Vietnam hotels, fine arts, Vietnam traditional crafts and tourism training with about 150 pavilions.

Many other activities will also be held, including a forum on “Vietnam Tourism – Hidden Charm”, a food and drink festival, the opening of new tours and propaganda of new publications of Vietnam and Quang Nam tourism.

The Quang Nam tourism sector in co-ordination with provinces and cities nationwide will open “APEC Tourism Fair 2006” from October 16-18 in Hoi An Square, adjacent to Chua Cau (Bridge Pagoda).

Vietnam Culture and sports activities will also take place in three consecutive days, for example, performances of Bac Ninh duet songs, Hanoi ca tru (ceremonial songs), the Central Highlands gong, and Thai Binh cheo (traditional operetta).
