More than 200 travel experts from the United States will arrive in Israel for the annual ASTA Destination Expo, hosted by the Israel Ministry of Tourism (IMOT) which is taking place from November 10–14, 2019.
Throughout the week, participants will interact with local suppliers and vendors, receive first-hand training from local experts, and learn more about the Israel product in an effort to increase sales and encourage travellers to choose Israel as their next destination.
ASTA participants will have the opportunity to explore some of Israel’s biggest attractions first-hand. Local vendors will be offering sightseeing tours of Tel Aviv’s White City and picturesque alleyways of Old Jaffa to Jerusalem’s Old City and more. ASTA travel advisors can also participate in a variety of workshops and learning sessions, deepening their knowledge of the country to accommodate the interests of their clients, including:
With an abundance of locations, travellers seldom have to travel more than 20 minutes to explore, taste and discover the destinations. Attendees will learn about Israel’s southern city on the Red Sea and newly opened Ramon Airport.
Israel has seen a 10 per cent increase in tourist entries since the beginning of 2019, with an economic impact of $5.371 billion USD. In addition, October 2019 has seen a 11 per cent increase during the same period in 2018.
