CHINA OUTBOUND TOURISM WORKSHOP: CUSTOMISED TOURISM & POTENTIAL OF LONG-HAUL DESTINATIONS (in cooperation with Ivy Alliance Tourism Consulting, presented by UBS)
SI: English & Putonghua
After more than 20 years of rapid growth, China's outbound tourism has entered a new stage of development. The China Outbound Tourism Workshop will feature China's leading outbound tour operators, industry experts and destination promotion agencies addressing questions such as: What are the new characteristics of China’s outbound tourism market? How have the market demand, customer structure and products shifted? What are the requirements for a destination’s tourism suppliers?
The workshop will also examine South America as an emerging long-haul destination market. What are the “selling points” of tourism in South American countries, such as Argentina and Brazil? How can these destinations attract more Chinese tourists? As more Chinese tourists favor customized experiences, how can destinations provide innovative tourism products and quality services?
