CIBTM was the first convention we signed before the venue was opened to the public. CIBTM expanded fast since 2007 and has since reached bigger markets in the following five years. The show grows steadily and now stands at a really important position in both Beijing and China markets in Asia. CNCC increases its awareness, revenues and good reputations along with CIBTM’s growth. - Haiying Liu, China National Convention Centre and Grand Hotel
CIBTM is the main MICE event in the world that we participate in because it can bring us many new contacts and many people that will be interested in our company. - Frank Eberle, Tourism Promotion Office of the Dominican Republic
For us the China market is very important and CIBTM is a very good exhibition for Argentina because we have several meetings with organisations and associations.
- Pablo Sismanian, Argentina National Tourist Office
CIBTM is important for our business as we meet a lot of potential clients here and we would like to develop in this market. The show provides us with opportunities to meet potential suppliers. China is our neighbouring country and we are very interested in developing business in this region further.

CIBTM is very famous in China and is very important for our marketing as it is such a good way to show our brand. Also we can make lots of connections here and have business meetings with travel agencies and we hope to secure some contracts from this in the future. - Cherie Liu, Sky Roam
We have had a lot of business from trade buyers attending the show. We have attended CIBTM for the last 5 years and is an important part of our marketing strategy. - Hyejung Yang, Incentive and Exhibitions Team, Korea Tourism Organisation
CIBTM is important because we see a great potential in the Chinese market and according to statistics, in the last year 1.1m Chinese tourists visited Russia and St. Petersburg was one of the most popular places for them. We have a good meetings schedule here and we are busy for the two days. - Anna Chevergova, CEO, Saint Petersburg Convention Bureau
This is our third year at CIBTM and in one day we received around 15 business leads, which was very productive. It is important that we continue to exhibit here as it allows us to educate people about New Zealand and now people are coming to our stand asking about particular cities for hosting meetings. This is a great trend we have started to see here. - Helen Zhang, Business Events Manager Greater China, New Zealand Tourism
We met with a lot of potential clients which will lead to business in the future. CIBTM provides a good platform for networking and connections. - Vivian Huang, Assistant Director of Sales and Marketing, Kempinski Hotel, Xi’an
