Taking place from September 7-8, 2016, at the China National Convention Centre, ibtm china is in gear for a successful 2016 edition.
The show is readying itself for a great line-up of international exhibitors, which include: San Francisco Travel, Czech Tourism, Tourism New Zealand and Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau as well as first time exhibitors: Business Events Canada and Peninsula Hotels.
This year, the popular ‘destination presentations’ held on the show floor over the two-day event will now incorporate sessions held by both hotels as well as destinations. Hosted buyers will be granted the chance to pre-book the presentations during the show.
ibtm china 2016 is on track to welcome more than 400 hosted buyers and will organise over 9,000 pre-scheduled appointments with the exhibitors. The exclusive hosted buyer networking reception will run on Tuesday evening and will be held at the newly refurbished Peninsula Hotel.
Meanwhile, buyers and exhibitors will be united on the Wednesday evening during the official welcome party, which will take place at the China World Summit Hotel.
Senior project manager, ibtm china, Cici Chen noted: “I am delighted at the quality of the hosted buyers that we are welcoming to the show this year and the number of appointments pre-scheduled during the two days.
“It’s a testament of how important ibtm china is in the development of the meetings industry in China. We play a valuable role in showcasing different destinations to those buyers who are looking to place business. We’re also committed to ensuring that we are providing the best possible platform for our buyers and exhibitors to meet, learn, place business and network with each other,” Chen added.
