There is a new trendsetter. This trendsetter is embedded within a new global conference. The name is the International Tourism & Investment Conference (ITIC) The venue is London and the date November 1 and 2, 2019.
There is a new hands-on concept to present your investment needs and at the same time meet global experts, and many travel and tourism celebrities ready to talk to you.
If you’re planning to attend the World Travel Market, just leave three days earlier. It should be worth your time and cost, and some think, it’s a must to attend event.
The focus at the conference is for tourism stakeholders to:
- Showcase tourism projects, to interact face-to-face and establish fruitful business relationships with potential investors, investment banks and private equity firms looking for live and bankable projects to optimize their return on investment.
- ITIC provides access to ministers and policy-makers of several countries who will be attending our conference. Their main objective will be to nurture bilateral and multilateral cooperation in the tourism sector.
- The conference will offer participants opportunities to initiate mutually beneficial partnerships and alliances (LOIs and MOUs) leading to investments in sustainable tourism developments progressing to fruition.
