Beijing International Tourism Expo returns for 8th edition

The Beijing International Tourism Expo, popularly known as BITE, returns to the global stage for its eighth edition 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) - which was used as a communications center during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

The previous BITE boasted 82 countries and 25 provinces (with Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan) in participation, 796 exhibitors, and 214 hosted buyers. With this in mind, BITE 2011 will soar to new heights.

In this highly-anticipated BITE 2011, exhibitors can expect high visitorship from industrial players and trade consumers. With the Beijing Tourism Administration (BTA) as a partner and co-organizer, there will be considerable state assistance to the industry, making business dealings and networking hassle free!

With this liberalization, processing of travel documents for tourists and travel agencies will be streamlined, and other incentives are in the pipeline. In addition, infrastructural improvements following the 2008 Beijing Olympics, has enhanced the country’s transportation network. China’s strong economic growth in recent years has also added support to the industry, underpinning
domestic tourism and creating an exciting environment for foreign visitors.
