Marketplace virtual events will include one-to-one meetings, networking sessions and enrichment series—all of which will work to foster marketing insights and facilitate connections between tourism industry leaders like CEOs, category specialists and major media.
The first event to launch on the new platform will be the four-day Brand USA Travel Week Europe, which will connect over 150 buyers from around Europe with roughly 115 exhibitors, ranging from destinations and regional marketing organizations to transportation services, receptive tour operators, major hotels and attractions.
