China s Maiden MICE Show Poised to Take Off Enthusiastic Interest for IT&CM China from Buyers and Sellers Issue No 1 Nov 2006 T he inaugural Incentive Travel & Conventions Meeting (IT&CM) China is making headway for its debut in April 2007 in Shanghai. Since organisers MP International and TTG Asia Media announced the launch of IT&CM China a spin-off from the established Incentive Travel & Conventions Meetings Asia (IT&CMA) interest to participate in this event has triggered a quick take-up of exhibition space by suppliers as well as buyers applications for the hosting programme. The first group of national tourism organisations and convention visitor bureaus to register their interest for exhibition pavilions include Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau Singapore Tourism Board Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau and Tourism Malaysia. Corporate exhibitors who have signed up include Accor Banyan Tree Hilton Swiss tel as well as Chinese companies such as DDIT Jinjiang Group Jia Hua Grand Hotel and HotelZon. Todate 70 per cent of the 6 000sqm hall has been booked. 100 international MICE buyers from 30 countries have expressed their keenness to buy China. Exhibitors can also look forward to meeting buyers from top companies such as Adidas BMW Hitachi Itocho McDonald s and Siemens based in China. Attributing the trade s enthusiastic response to the organisers synergy TTG Asia Media managing director Mr Darren Ng says MP International which has an office in Shanghai is using its local market expertise and contacts to source for Chinese buyers while TTG with its experience in organising international trade shows is identifying international quality buyers. Positioned as a MICE (Meetings Incentives Conventions Exhibitions) event IT&CM China provides an excellent platform to promote China as a top MICE destination to the world. It will also be a onestop trade fair for MICE destinations around the world keen to promote their products and services to top Chinese buyers and get a share of China s exponentially growing MICE market. The importance of IT&CM China as a catalyst for effective crossborder exchange of business partnerships is aptly summarised in MP International s chief executive officer Ms Sylvia Phua s remarks IT&CM will be an efficient platform for the MICE industry to plug into the huge potential of China. At the same time Chinese players can learn more about the global business potential and build meaningful partnerships with international industry players. It will be a win-win situation for the Chinese and global MICE industries. IT&CM China has confirmed support from five leading associations which include Shanghai Municipal Tourism Association (SMTA) Shanghai Convention and Exhibition Industries Association (SCEIA) Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) and Society of Incentive Travel Executives (SITE) - Hong Kong Chapter. China is accepted as the meetings destination of the next decade. It is to TTG Asia s credit that they are one of the first to bring buyers into this exciting destination. IAPCO members are beginning to look to China for their new branch offices and will be working closely with the organisers to ensure the success of this show comments Mr Andr Vietor President IAPCO. 23 - 25 April 2007 INTEX Shanghai China www.itcmchina.com Headlines Staying On Top Of The Industry with IT&CM China Seminars Delegates of IT&CM China 2007 will start their mornings with daily seminars at INTEX Shanghai.

With many colourful festivals lush gardens and a never-ending nightlife few cities in Asia can match Shanghai for its unbeatable charm rich culture and amazing grace.

Today Shanghai is a truly international city with easy accessibility to and from more than 400 cities worldwide served by two airports and modern cruise terminals. It is also one of the very few metropolitan cities that can boast safety convenience comfort and efficiency all at the same time.
