Special discount for exhibitors who register until 31 August – second ITB China will take place from 16 to 18 May 2018 in Shanghai – very good results in visitor and exhibitor survey 2017
ITB China online registration has now opened to give exhibitors who book early a 10 per cent discount on stand fees if they register by 31 August 2017. The trade show which positions itself as the Marketplace for China’s Travel Industry takes place from 16 to 18 May 2018 in Shanghai at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Conference Center in partnership with TravelDaily. Exhibitor registrations are way above the level of the same time last year. “Fuelled by the overwhelming success of the premiere event, we are experiencing a very high demand for the second edition of ITB China. Exhibitors targeting the Chinese travel market are literally securing their participation at ITB China 2018 by booking their stands early. Although we have significantly increased the overall scale of the event, we are already seeing that the exhibition space will become scarce again,” says David Axiotis, General Manager ITB China.
Vivian Qin, Vice President, Mengtu Travel Technology Co. says the scale of the show was magnificent: “ITB China is setting up the stage to help the Chinese companies to expand overseas.”
“The quality of the attendees is perfect. The people are professional and coming from the different sectors of the travel industry”, tells Donna Dai, Tencent Performance Advertising Group Industry Director, Tencent.
The inaugural ITB China 2017 sold out months prior to its opening premiere with some 600 exhibitors from 70 countries presenting themselves to 10,000 attendees. The exhibition was flanked by a packed conference program with 70 speakers informing about the latest developments in China and a multitude of networking sessions and events.

About ITB Berlin and ITB Asia
First launched 51 years ago, ITB Berlin is recognised as the most successful trade show for the global travel industry. Some 10,000 exhibitors from more than 180 countries regularly attend this event. Every year in October for the last nine years Messe Berlin has successfully organised ITB Asia in Singapore. Boasting 760 exhibitors from 73 countries, ITB Asia in Singapore has established itself as one of the leading travel trade shows in Asia. As the second show in Asia, ITB China will take place in Shanghai, one of the leading industrial cities in the People’s Republic of China, and with a population of around 23 million one of world’s largest cities. In contrast to ITB Asia, which reflects tourism in Asia as a whole, ITB China focuses entirely on the Chinese travel market.
