The 15th Shanghai World Travel Fair (SWTF) will take place May 24-27. With an expected attendance of more than 500 exhibitors from around the world and 13,000 buyers and visitors, mainly from east China, SWFT is a B2B and B2C event focusing on China’s growing outbound tourism market.
The Travel Trade Market (TTM) will take place September 5-7, in Chengdu, Sichuan. It is a B2B event for inbound and outbound Chinese tourism operators. TTM offers international exhibitors the opportunity of meeting tourism professionals from secondary and tertiary cities in the central and western regions of China. Before taking EAGLE into its operational phase, the joint venture partners conducted a survey during the Chengdu Travel Trade Market Business Forum 2017 to gauge market interest, and conducted 1,000 business meetings during the TTM preview, consulting with some 60 international buyers from more than 17 countries, as well as tourism companies. The new venture has already concluded an agreement with the European Tourism Association (ETOA), which is the leading association in Europe of tour operators and tourism industry suppliers, to explore and secure greater commercial opportunities in the Chinese market.
The World Tourism Organization reported that 135 million Chinese tourists travelled abroad in 2016, up 6% from the number registered a year earlier. The China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) estimated that the tourism sector grew by a further 4% in 2017. The amount spent during oversees travel by Chinese citizens exceeded 261 billion U.S. in 2016, representing a 12% increase from the previous year. A record 5.8 million Chinese tourists booked overnight stays in Italy in 2016, up 400,000 compared from 2015. According to the China Outbound Tourism Research Institute (COTRI), during the first 6 months of 2017, a 14% increase was recorded in the number of visa applications, with rise in applications for +22% for individual trips and +10% increase for group trips.
