Tra Vinh was established a long time ago, creating alluvial land with many floating dunes along the river by nature. The intersection of cultures has created many landscapes and historical sites with great potential for tourism development, such as culinary tourism, garden ecotourism, and cultural spiritual tourism.

The event is considered as an opportunity for localities, economic organisations, and enterprises inside and outside the province to introduce their economic potentials, promote their brands, and look for business partners, as well as cooperate to invest in economic development. At the same time, the event is a place for businesses to exchange, approach market expansion, sell goods and sign trade. This is also an attractive destination for domestic and foreign tourists to visit, have fun and enjoy the entertainment.
