Beijing International Tourism Expo (BITE) is On This Month
The Beijing International Tourism Expo (BITE), will be held for the eighth time from June 17-19, 2011. It is Asia’s leading annual travel and tourism event and is being staged at a new venue – the China National Convention Centre (CNCC). This was used as a communications center during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
The BITE held in 2010 had exhibits from 82 countries and 25 provinces (with Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan) in participation, 796 exhibitors, and 214 hosted buyers. The BITE 2011 will be even larger.
The Beijing Tourism Administration (BTA) as a partner and co-organizer of BITE 2011, offering considerable state assistance to the tourism industry. Processing of travel documents for tourists and travel agencies have been streamlined. Infrastructural improvements following the 2008 Beijing Olympics have improved the country’s transportation network. China’s strong economic growth in recent years has also added support to the tourism industry, underpinning domestic tourism and creating an exciting environment for foreign visitors.
BITE 2011 has attracted many travel industry leaders and professionals from afar such as South Africa, Kenya, Switzerland, Spain, India, South Korea, and more. These countries are renowned for their wide variety of tourist attractions, and their participation in BITE 2011 will enable interaction and networking with their Chinese counterparts at the highest levels.
BITE 2011 is an enormous showcase of tourism destinations and attractions, as well as travel-related goods and services. For further information see the web site:- http://www.bitechina.com.cn/en/en_home.php
