Launching in 2015, (CTW), a new conference dedicated to building industry knowledge and cultivating best practices in China’s business travel policies and decision-making process will be available for Chinese Corporate Travel professionals.
Modelled after TTG Asia Media’s Corporate Travel Word (CTW) Asia-Pacific, the newly launched edition in Shanghai is branded as CTW China to reflect the show’s focus on the interests and requirements of this geographical region. CTW China will boast a full-fledged conference programme, sessions with relevant suppliers and networking avenues.
Coming together to launch CTW’s first event, TTG Asia Media and Carlson Wagonlit Travel, China, CTW China will offer a choice of topics, invited speakers and targeted audience. “Even though CTW China is established on a proven and tested format, the unique valuable proposition of the show will be 100% focused deliberately on the Chinese market,” explained Darren Ng, Managing Director, TTG Asia Media. “Participants will be able to benefit immensely from discussions on salient issues key to Chinese corporations, as well as expert advice from experienced practitioners operating in the same environment and facing the same market forces and challenges.” Ng continued.
Co-organiser Carlson Wagonlit Travel, China’s Managing Director, Albert Zhong added, “We are very excited about being a part of an initiative that will help boost the sophistication and prospects of China’s business travel market. There is no doubt that China will be the world’s largest procurer in this sector. China is currently ranked number 2 in global business spending, and at its annual growth projection of 14% (second only to India), the country’s business travel spend is on track to surpass the US (currently ranked number 1) by 2017.”
CTW China will take place as part of the Shanghai Business Events Week 2015, and will also be held in conjunction with IT&CM China from 14 to 16 April 2015.
