Tourist boards, tour operators and buyers from across Europe are congregating in Gothenburg for the 2009 CityBreak Expo, the specialist trade event dedicated to the city break market.This year’s overriding theme sees a strong refocus on European source markets. The consensus emerging from delegates is that the global downturn is dampening non-European demand, especially North America; however European cities are proving surprisingly resilient as travellers within the Continent stay closer to home and with products they know and trust.
Buyers from across Europe will be congregating in Gothenburg 15-16 June for this year’s City Break. This exclusive travel trade event is dedicated to the growth of the city break market.The event is a commercial platform where European cities and selected suppliers meet with prominent travel journalists and senior purchasing managers from leading European tour operators and online agents for two days of buyer-driven, pre-scheduled appointments. Buyer registration closes this Wednesday evening.
