CHINA’s longest-running MICE and tourism show, the Guangzhou International Travel Fair (GITF), returns for its 31st edition next month with more than 30,000 trade visitors expected.
“GITF2023 will cover not just the traditional tourism sectors such as outbound and inbound, MICE, attractions and itineraries, but also combine emerging technologies and cultural tourism topics, such as digital tourism, rural tourism, tea culture, museums, culture and creative, sports tourism and intangible cultural heritage,” said a spokesman for Beijing-based Dragon Trail International, which is working with the GITF organisers.
Industry insights will be shared at the event’s forums, held alongside the exhibition, with topics ranging from building a platform for business opportunities in China’s Greater Bay Area tourism market to new trends and market demands.
Speakers include representatives from WTTC (World Travel & Tourism Council), ETC (European Travel Commission), PATA (Pacific Asia Travel Association), WAP (World Animal Protection), WTCF (World Tourism Cities Federation) and TCWTF (Twin Cities World Tourism Forum).
GITF2023 is scheduled for May 19-21 at the Canton Fair Complex, Guangzhou. For details on attending or exhibiting, visit www.gitf.com.cn
