SHANGHAI, Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With 570 exhibitors from more than 50 countries and regions in 2014, World Travel Fair attracted more than 10,000 professional visitors, and close to 40,000 consumers.
In 2015, Shanghai World Travel Fair will continue to support the exponential growth of Chinese outbound tourism, at the heart of China's most dynamic market. While the organizer will be providing a premium platform for business meetings, the show will also be a fantastic place to market your destination and meet middle and upper class consumers.
Extended to 4 days in 2015 and 25% bigger, World Travel Fair is growing steadily and now covers most important destinations and tourism segments (leisure, luxury, MICE, health), and comes with a series of associated events, conferences, and special marketing incentives for new travel products.
Whether you're a destination, hotel, travel technologies provider, transportation company, or even a gourmet restaurant, if you are looking for opportunities to work with professionals and attract tourists from China, an over $100 billion market, you want to make sure that you understand the particular needs of newly wealthy and middle-class people who have gained the financial power to explore the world.
In the age of digital communication and social networks, the need to meet face-to-face to conduct business is evidence. Face-to-face meetings can be facilitated but not replaced by technology: nothing compares with the experience of seeing, touching, testing and discussing new products and solutions in person -- especially in Asia, fundamentally in China.
As a comprehensive platform for professional networking and consumers marketing, the 12th Shanghai World Travel Fair will be held from May 7 to 10, 2015 at the Shanghai Exhibition Center. For all tourism industry professionals around the world, it is a unique opportunity to understand the market and find local partners, as well as the best way to offer potential customers a first glimpse at offers they would not otherwise consider.
World Travel Fair is an annual gathering held in Shanghai and co-hosted by Shanghai Municipal Tourism Administration and VNU Exhibitions Asia.
