Romania aims to attract Chinese tourists and promotes itself at ITB China, the most important trade fair dedicated exclusively to industry professionals, focused on the Chinese travel market.

“The participation of Romania in this edition of ITB China was proposed and approved within the Consultative Council of Tourism, a body that brings together representatives of tourism employers’ associations and professional associations. Furthermore, we emphasize that Shanghai holds special importance for our country, as it is where the tourism brand ‘Explore the Carpathian Garden’ was launched 14 years ago,” reads a statement from the Ministry of Economy, Entrepreneurship, and Tourism (MEAT), sent to AGERPRES on Monday, as reported by Agerpres.

The event takes place in Shanghai from May 27 to 29 and serves as an ideal platform for exhibitors to connect with travel agencies, hotels, airlines from around the world, as well as other entities operating in this sector, with the aim of forming partnerships and business relationships.

To maximize Romania’s presence at ITB China, the ministry will organize a special event titled “Romania: The Gateway to Eastern Europe – Networking & Business Opportunities.” During this event, guests will discover detailed information about our destination’s tourism offer tailored to the target audience and will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and know-how to build relationships that can lead to future collaborations.

Regarding the specifics of the market, there has been a significant increase in Chinese tourism in recent decades, with millions of travelers choosing to spend their vacations outside the country’s borders. In this regard, the World Tourism Organization has presented optimistic perspectives, forecasting that approximately 100 million Chinese tourists are expected to spend their vacations abroad by 2025. In light of recent trends, China is on track to reach this goal sooner.

ITB China is part of the renowned “Internationale Tourismus-Borse” series, one of the largest and most important tourism exhibitions in the world.
