WTM London has announced that China Travel Online will be the show’s newest buyer partner and media partner in China.
China Travel Online is a China outbound travel portal that connects destinations, attractions, hotels and other travel suppliers around the world to Chinese operators and professionals.
It is also one-stop-shop for resources, e-commerce, news and networking for Chinese travel and tourism companies and professionals.
The new partnership means that China Travel Online will invite up to 50 Chinese buyers to network and do business with suppliers and destinations across the globe during WTM Virtual on Nov. 8 and Nov. 9.
China Travel Online will also assist with the organization of WTM China Forum, a high-level event which will take place on day one of WTM London – Nov. 1 at ExCel London – to explore key issues and challenges for the rapidly growing Chinese outbound market – which is the largest in the world.
Marcus Lee, Chief Executive at China Travel Online, said the company was eager to work with WTM London because of the global opportunities of such a major partnership.
Said Lee: “Becoming the China buyer partner and media partner means that our profile will be raised around the world. It enables us to help many Chinese buyers to make new business connections and seal important deals as the travel industry looks to rebuild in 2022.”
Simon Press, WTM London Exhibition Director, said: “We’re delighted to welcome China Travel Online as the China buyer partner and media partner in China. We have seen participation from Chinese travel and tourism firms grow over the years and last year, at WTM Virtual, we held a very interesting online debate with top China tourism experts.”
Press noted that: “We’re building on that success with this new partnership in 2021 and I look forward to welcoming the buyers to WTM Virtual. Furthermore, the WTM China Forum will be a must-attend event for anyone in the sector who is interested in the multibillion-pound Chinese outbound market.”
WTM London take place as a physical event on Nov. 1 to Nov. 3 at ExCel London, and will be followed by WTM Virtual on No. 8 and Nov. 9.
