A superior level of service combined with an unique product and thus highly individual travel experience have become important criteria for Chinese travellers, especially for the younger generations among them.

The most popular themed travel products included caravanning & camping, outdoor hiking, low-altitude activities, water sports, winter sports and others.
“Themed and customised travel has become one of the most popular choice for Chinese travellers, reflecting the increasing demand for products and services. We are very much looking forward to exploring more about the latest travel products from global suppliers on the ITB China platform, and integrating these creative and cutting-edge travel elements into our own products,” said Guo Ming, Founder of HH Travel.
As buyer partners for Customized and Themed Travel, these 10 leading Chinese travel companies will send top buyers from all over China to ITB China to attend both the physical and the virtual event platform, promoting the trade show among their channels, as well as organizing activities at ITB China 2021, while sharing their latest insights on market trends and development expecations with regards to the post-pandemic Chinese travel market.
