Fourth Brand USA China Sales Mission Will Be Held in Three Cities
WASHINGTON, DC, 2018-Nov-27 — /Travel PR News/ — Brand USA, the destination marketing organization for the United States, has announced registration is now open for the 2019 China Sales Mission held in Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shanghai from March 17 – 22. This will be the fourth annual Brand USA China Sales Mission.
According to the most recent National Travel and Tourism Office (NTTO) statistics, in 2017, the United States welcomed more than 3.1 million visitors from China, with a consecutive increase throughout the past decade. China is currently the fifth-largest international market in terms of visitation into the United States and the Chinese market ranks first in spending for inbound travel to and within the United States.
The sales mission provides a platform in China for U.S. destination marketing organizations (DMOs), hotels, attractions, and suppliers to interact directly with Chinese tour operators, airline representatives, travel agents, meeting and incentive agents. It is an opportunity to introduce the limitless potential of the United States as a travel destination, create awareness, and encourage leisure travelers from China to visit the United States.
“Brand USA’s leading voice in the travel industry is shaped by the diversity and complexity of its narrative,” said Cathy Domanico, Vice President, Global Trade Development of Brand USA. “Heading into our fourth annual China Sales Mission, we view this as the chance to both inform the Travel Trade in China on the potential travel opportunities the USA has to offers and, develop significant business relationships with the travel trade in China.”
The invited Chinese travel trade executives, product managers, and operation managers are from tier one cities of Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. There will be approximately 120 Chinese buyers participating in B2B sessions and social events in Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shanghai.
Registration and event details are available at the 2019 Brand USA China Sales Mission website. The deadline to register is Jan. 31, 2019 and questions can be directed to Brand USA’s Senior Manager, Global Trade Development, Louis Lu.
