Not only the coming of summer season rose the temperature of Beijing, but also COTTM 07 brought China outbound travel heat into the open. In the China World Trade Center, COTTM07 welcomed the first group of professional visitors from tourism.


Hosted Buyers came in forces

Trade visitors only

However, once inside the exhibition hall you will see the outbound travel heat as the outbound tour operators and corporate travel organisers coming from all around China are keeping the exhibitors coming from all around the world very busy. This is reflected by the queen formed in front of the very well presented stand of China Business Network and World Travel Online which assisted the organisers to invite over 500 hosted buyers.
