Highlights of BITE 2019
1. Online Pre-scheduled Appointment System (OPSA) Each exhibitor can obtain an independent OPSA account which can be used to make appointments with hosted buyers before the exposition. Specialized negotiation meeting areas will be set up for exhibitors and buyers to improve the effectiveness of the exposition.
2. The operation of B2B will run parallel to B2C The operation of B2B will run parallel to B2C during the period of BITE 2019: the first day is for B2B, which is the trade day; the second and the third are for B2C, which are the public days. On the first half of trade day, hosted buyers will come to the booths of international exhibitors to hold a business talk face to face, and on the other half of the trade day, the exhibitors could have meetings with the hosted buyers who will wait in the specialized negotiation meeting areas. On the public days, international exhibitors can make profits by inviting some well-known travel agencies in Beijing to make live sales at their booths or sending one of their employees to promote their products at the travel agencies’ booths. According to the past experience of BITE, the performance of live sales could be obviously improved with the coordination between destination countries exhibitors and travel agencies, which indicates the high quality of the public visitors.
3. Significant improvement in quality of buyers The scope of buyers will be further expanded and trade visitors will be selected. We will invite 500 hosted buyers with proper orientation from home and abroad, especially the outbound tourism agencies and MICE buyers.
