HAWAII, USA; BRUSSELS, Belgium; VICTORIA, Seychelles; BALI, Indonesia – The International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) and the China Business Network will announce a deeper cooperation during the FITUR trade fair in Madrid, Spain, on January 30. The China Business Network will offer advisory seminars to Council Members on how to capture Chinese travelers, how to welcome them, and how to provide the services that will encourage them to return.

ICTP President, Professor Geoffrey Lipman, who will address the China Tourism Forum said: “The Chinese travel market – inbound, outbound, and domestic will remain the superstar of world travel and tourism for the foreseeable future. So we are particularly delighted to be aligning our programs for Green Growth and Quality with the China Business Network, which has a wealth of knowledge and experience in developing travel to and from China. They are not only a great authority on Chinese travel abroad, but also articulate advocates of the beauty and fascination of China’s incredible tourism sites, traditions, and visitor experiences.”

The China Tourism Forum will take place on January 30 from 1500-1730 hours at FITUR, Room A601 in Hall 6, and is open to all attendees at the fair.
