The organiser of IT&CM China and CTW China, TTG Asia Media, has opened registrations for buyers.
Slated to take place from June 22-24, 2021, the virtual event will be powered by Dragon Trail Interactive‚Äôs The Next Travel Market platform.
Buyers visiting the exhibition section will be able to meet suppliers from across China and the world in the show‚Äôs 2.5D virtual environment. The English-Mandarin interface can be accessed via a PC, mobile or a WeChat mini programme, providing single-entry access for both international and China-based delegates.
Buyers will also be able to download sales resources, view product presentations, swap e-business cards, leave messages, and schedule an appointment.
Video calls and chat rooms with two-way automated translation will also be on hand to facilitate networking sessions. Each buyer will receive up to 24 x 20-min pre-scheduled appointment slots over three days. These appointments can be supplemented with unlimited walk-in meetings, where a buyer can request for a ‚Äúwalk-in‚ÄĚ without a prior appointment from 09.00 to 18.00 daily (GMT +8).
Buyers can also stand to earn cash incentives or win prizes by completing event missions.
For example, for every Walk-In Meet with an exhibitor, buyers have the chance to receive up to 100 yuan (US$15.30) in each mystery packet, while every Scheduled Meet completed will earn them 20 yuan, plus bonus cash if they complete 10 or 20 Scheduled Meets.
All cash rewards can be withdrawn to a buyer’s WeChat Pay account, or they can receive a cash voucher after the event is over. Cash rewards for international buyers will be converted from Chinese yuan to US$ at the organiser’s prevailing exchange rate.
On the conference end, there will be MICE and Corporate Travel knowledge sessions helmed by industry partners, while destinations and corporate brands will also be giving updates and developments under the Brand Showcase section.
The Buyer Procurement Showcase segment also returns, which will see business, association and corporate buyers sharing their procurement requirements with relevant and interested destination and supplier leads.
Aside from receiving a digital certificate of participation, all content will be made available at dedicated times from June 22, with on-demand access for all delegates until the end of the event.
