Attract China Presenting at Active America China 2013
59% of Chinese tourists traveling to the US in the past year designated themselves as independent travelers (see China Daily article) – with group tours from China to America on the decrease, and independent travelers on the increase, this will be a presentation you do not want to miss.
Active America China, now in its fourth year, is the only show in North America 100% dedicated to building inbound Chinese tourism. Tour operators who attended Active America China were from companies that were responsible for over 40% of all tourism to North America in 2010. Read more about Active America China here.
