VIP Vis­i­tors

Travel Bulletin - - ISUES & TRENDS -

In another change to the for­mat, at­ten­dees in 2017 will be asked to reg­is­ter their in­ter­est be­fore tick­ets are given, with a re­view panel and in­vi­ta­tion process in­tro­duced to en­sure the most rel­e­vant buy­ers. Or­gan­is­ers will tar­get re­tail travel agents, home-based con­sul­tants, cor­po­rate travel plan­ners, pro­fes­sional con­fer­ence or­gan­is­ers and oth­ers in a more strin­gent qual­i­fy­ing process. “Peo­ple are look­ing for some­thing new, per­haps out of left field – they want to know what the next hot des­ti­na­tion is, so we want to be ahead of the curve and not just present the same old stuff.” Other ex­hibitors would in­clude ac­com­mo­da­tion sup­pli­ers, cruise lines, tour op­er­a­tors, air­lines, “out of the box ex­pe­ri­ences” and in­no­va­tive travel tech­nol­ogy ven­dors.
