Welcome to the 2018 MeetChina forum

The annual MeetChina forum is focused on the number one outbound tourism market in the world – China.

Negotiate business with 85 decision makers at MeetChina, the only event in the region for high value, one-on-one meetings with top-tier travel buyers from China. Hosted buyers from Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong are attending with the intention of growing the amount of business placed in the MENA region.

Save on the time and expense associated with travelling to China, by attending pre-scheduled appointments with carefully vetted Chinese buyers at MeetChina. This B2B forum is open to government tourist organisations, hotels, DMCs, attractions, leisure and retail venues – anyone who wants to attract the highly lucrative Chinese market.

Awareness and interest in this event is such that demand outstrips supply. We therefore limit attendance to 75 tourism suppliers meeting 85 buyers. This truly makes MeetChina a one-to-one event!
