Sponsored Networking Highlights

Pacific World Takes Delegates on 2 Pre-Show City Tours;
AccorHotels Hosts Cocktail for Participants

Buyer and media delegates joined Pacific World in discovering the sights and sounds of Shanghai
and the city’s MICE abilities with two half-day tours. On 20 March, the tour covered the brand new
Shanghai Tower, Puxi by ferry with a view of Pudong and the bund, Xintiandi – the architectural
symbol of Shanghai, a walking tour of the historic French Concession, and the culmination of the
day’s events with a networking cocktail and property tour sponsored by
AccorHotels. The 21 March tour centered on an excursion to Zhujiajiao
Water Village, an attraction with more than a thousand years of heritage.

Since our hotel is a heritage spot, we invited potential
buyers to tour the hotel and contextualize the rich history in the
locations where they happened. We felt this would better bring our venue
to life within a natural and intimate atmosphere while mingling, creating a
unique experience to get to know the hotel’s products and stimulate their
interest further.
Fairmont Peace Hotel, An AccorHotels Property | Jessica Zhang, Director of
Marketing Communications

Turkish Airlines Sponsors First-Ever Pre-Show FAM Trip to

Going beyond the usual participation days, a handful of select international buyers and media
had their IT&CM China 2017 experience begin with a 4-day, 3-night pre-show tour to Istanbul
sponsored by Turkish Airlines. The trip brought delegates around iconic landmarks in Istanbul while
savouring local delights and traditional cuisine, exposing participants to a real-life acquaintance of
the destination’s capabilities even before attending the show as part of current ongoing efforts to
promote the MICE-ready city to decision-makers.

IT&CM China allowed us to captivate beyond show days by leveraging on the buyer profile we
knew would be present in China. This tour created desired exposure for Istanbul and Turkish Airlines
leading up to the show days by giving potential buyers a real life experience of what our destination is
capable of.
Turkish Airlines | Halil Ibrahim Polat, Senior Vice President, Sales (Domestic)

This trip was a good opportunity to discover what Istanbul is really like so that we can promote it as a destination
to our clients. Instead of having meetings in our usual capital destinations, Istanbul is a great alternative.
Zanda Convention & Fair Tour Co. Ltd | Thai buyer Kanita Watanaphonphan, Product Manager

Zanda is looking to host a potential incentive group of about 60 to 80 persons from the Pharmaceutical industry to Istanbul
later this year.

Shanghai Marriott Parkview as 2017 Opening Ceremony
Sponsor for Third Consecutive Year

Shanghai Marriott Parkview once again played venue sponsor to the Official IT&CM China and
CTW China 2017 Opening Ceremony and Welcome Dinner. Delegates were treated to a night
of local and international performances, world-class gourmet menu, excellent hospitality and
facilities as a showcase of the breadth of the venue’s capabilities.

The continuous development of our surrounding facilities has contributed greatly to
the increased dining, entertainment, and accessibility options. This has propelled our growing
reputation in the Shanghai MICE market over the years as a preferred venue of choice. As 3rd
year sponsors, we were keen to gain more exposure globally among international stakeholders
and agents.
Shanghai Marriott Parkview | Ricky Lam, General Manager


Up Close and Hungry for Destinations from Around the World

First-time participating destinations at IT&CM China, Argentina, Fiji, Hainan and South Africa not only
exhibited but also hosted exclusive luncheons with major industry stakeholders present to give
buyers a birds-eye view of the venues, capabilities, products and services for their next incentive
trip or major event. Returning exhibitors Fukuoka and Macao also presented a luncheon and
dinner respectively to showcase the rich history, culture, support and latest city developments.

The show has been really good for us. We really want to organise activities like the
luncheon as it is a good way to engage the buyers to the destinations. I’m really happy and I
think we have many things here to do in China.
National Institute of Tourism Promotion, Argentina | Emora Franco, Meeting Industry Coordinator

Macao’s promotional dinner was the perfect targeted platform to get our destination message across to
key Chinese buyers. We appreciated getting to know corporate and incentive buyers and
their needs so that we can better fulfil them.
Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) | Irene Va Kuan Lau, Executive Director

The captive luncheon was an excellent way to showcase South Africa as the
top meetings and events destination in Africa. South Africa’s amazing variety of venues and
destinations, diverse offerings, activities, and unforgettable experience were definitely

Hangzhou Post-Event FAMiliarisation Tour

Hangzhou Tourism Commission put together a 3 day, 2 night post-show FAM trip to the capital
of the Zhejiang province from 23 to 25 March. Catered to international buyers and media, the
commission hoped to introduce the charming city as the next cultural and business events
hub within China. Participants visited various event venues, got hands-on with traditional crafts,
and experienced local culture all while feasting from a smorgasbord of Hangzhou delights and
Zhejiang cuisine.

We are delighted to be able to leverage on the IT&CM China post-show tour opportunity
to draw international buyers to Hangzhou. The city is now very confident in developing MICE with
new and improved state-of-the-art facilities and capabilities.
Hangzhou Tourism Commission | Tina Gan, M.I.C.E Department

Going Bigger with an Expanded Event Co-Location with
CTW China 2017

This year’s IT&CM China edition also introduced an expanded exhibition space by bringing CTW
China 2017 within the hall, creating a more inclusive, shared business environment and adding
significance to the co-location of two leading MICE and Corporate Travel shows.
Not only did IT&CM China exhibitors have a chance to cast a wider net and tap into the Corporate
Travel market, but CTW China delegates also got to enrich themselves at the various knowledge
sessions and build their contacts across more factions of the MICE industry.

IT&CM China and CTW China delegates now have greater opportunities to network and benefit. The new
structure definitely facilitates a more inclusive buzz between the two shows while providing access to industry
peers across both platforms.
