All Smiles as the 24th Annual IT&CMA and 19th CTW Asia-Pacific Concludes

First-time exhibitor Monaco Government Tourist Bureau (Asia)’s Benoit Badufle, Regional Director, said, “There has been a lot of energy at the show and the selection of international buyers is amazing. Monaco is happy to stand out as a luxury travel destination and we got to garner valuable contacts and meet buyers we have not met before to propagate the image of Monaco.” 
 
 
Buyer Monika Valleton, Managing Director of ATJ Lingwista from Poland, praised the show’s ability to showcase a wide range of suppliers, “Our company caters to both leisure travellers and MICE, specifically incentive groups, and we have been getting more demand for Asia because of the connectivity and ease of access to the region. The show is a big opportunity for us to focus on the region and to get to know the destinations that are potentially interesting for our clients.”
 
 
The solid education programme’s focus and depth, poignant topics and relevant speakers also drew nods from attending delegates. As the industry continues to evolve and attract a demographic of veterans and new-comers to the trade, participants at the conference and knowledge sessions acknowledged that the learning experience evidence d the organiser’s pulse on the marketplace. 
 
 
Corporate Travel Manager Swee McGowan, Executive Assistant to M.D., Mazda Motors of New Zealand Limited, cited, “The topics were very well integrated and balanced, covering various trends like the rise in sharing economies and evergreen discussions such as revenue and system management. Being in the industry for more than 10 years, the conference sessions did well to educate on the current developments and still deliberate on the areas characteristic of the Corporate Travel landscape.”
