Introduction :

The only business to business outbound event in China dedicated to the Chinese outbound travel & tourism industry, COTTM, (China Outbound Travel & Tourism Market) recently held its 6th edition of the annual trade show in Beijing, China.

This year the exhibition included 230 exhibitors from 55 different countries, from Australia to Azerbaijan; Croatia to Cuba; Thailand to Tanzania, creating a global platform of destinations and services, and the business opportunities to meet with the key Chinese industry professionals and buyers.

For the first time, COTTM welcomed destinations including Bhutan, Croatia, Israel, Indonesia & Tanzania; as well as a Caribbean and Japanese Pavilion to the exhibition. Also through the private sector for the first time, Jordan, Madagascar, Namibia and Turkey also participated. Over 3,000 Chinese travel trade professionals convened at COTTM to meet exhibitors from all over the world, to source new products and destinations for the rapidly expanding Chinese outbound travel market.

This year COTTM had a stronger focus on educating visitors and exhibitors to understand business and cultural practices in China. A comprehensive education programme was held in association with China Outbound Travel Research Institute, (COTRI) and Prof. Dr Wolfgang Georg Alt. Exhibitors were able to attend an introduction and a debrief workshop to learn about how to successfully approach the Chinese outbound travel market. COTRI also hosted the popular Chinese Tourist Welcoming Awards, which recognises the excellent services and products provided for the growing outbound Chinese market.
