China workshop, 4th edition is coming. This is a unique opportunity for professionals in tourism, both from China and France to be in contact and develop mutual business.
CORTI, China Outbound Tourism Research Institute has announced on last August a decrease of 3% in the 1st trimester from the Chinese outbound tourism. Europe has suffered of this decrease, and France is for sure as well affected.
However, we have to be careful about this decrease, because it represents only a part of the Chinese tourists. And we have to keep in mind that the part of Individual tourists (or mini group of 8 to 10 people) is increasing, and they do travel differently with a large proportion of 2nd travel.
The good news is that Europe still remains a popular destination for them.
The Chinese tourism market is in great evolution in last 5 years. As part of it, we have experienced and witnessed these changes since the first edition of the China Workshop.
In 2013, ID Travel Pro created this annual professional event. The main goal is to serve the Tourism Office from everywhere in France, as well as Hotels, Restaurants and Scenic spots. It is a platform to develop their business with Chinese travel agencies, OTAs, Tour guides…who are visitors of China Workshop.
