China has the world’s fastest growing MICE and corporate travel market. The trading volume of the MICE and corporate travel management market in China will reach US$ 30 billion by 2020.
The fourth ITB China will shine the spotlight on MICE & Corporate Travel, which are very dynamic and promising segments of the Chinese travel industry. The organizers expect over 300 MICE & Corporate travel buyers and more than 150 cross category buyers from China’s largest top 20 travel agencies as well as from China’s and Asia’s leading MICE & Corporate Travel associations, to attend China’s largest B2B exclusive travel trade show.
In order to further sharpen its MICE and Corporate Travel profile, ITB China 2020 will be launching a MICE Travel Conference as part of the ITB China Conference program as well as a dedicated conference stage, the MICE Showcase, exclusively for industry experts to share the latest trends and market insights of China’s MICE and Corporate Travel market and its developments. The profile will be rounded off by a series of topic-based networking events, bringing together exclusively MICE and Corporate Travel stakeholders from China and around the world.
More and more MICE and corporate buyers are not only buying traditional MICE and Corporate products such as hotels, convention venue, incentive tourism destinations, catering, transportation, etc., but are also searching for adventure and tailor-made travel product and services.
In order to meet the trend of Business + Leisure Travel, ITB China can provide exhibitors with not only traditional MICE and Corporate buyers, but also Cross Category Buyers. (Cross Category Buyers mean the leisure travel buyers also purchase MICE and Corporate travel product for their corporate clients).
According to ITB China Travel Trends Report 2019, 31% of leisure travel buyers have high demand for MICE and Corporate travel product. ITB China expects more than 150 cross category buyers participate in the 2020 edition.
