Chinese tour operators to skip travel fair

Published on : Saturday, August 26, 2017

TaiwanTourismThe Taiwan Visitors Association has confirmed this week that Chinese tour operators have decided to skip this year’s Cross-Strait Taipei Travel Fair that is scheduled to take place in the month of October 2017.

 

This would be the very first time that Chinese tour operators would be skipping this fair ever since it had opened in the year 2006.

 

The fair, for many years was jointly organized by the Taiwan Visitors Association as well as the Association for Tourism Exchange Across the Taiwan Straits. And, two quasi-official agencies representing China’s National Tourism Administration and Tourism Bureau of Taiwan would also be joining in the efforts.

 

It had been hosted at the same time as the International Travel Fair (ITF) that is another event by the Taiwan Visitors Association.

 

Both were held at the Taipei World Trade Center but were treated as separate fairs.

 

With the passage of time, the Cross-Strait Taipei Fair has developed into an important platform for tourism business all across the Taiwan Strait to interact with each other and create partnerships.

 

The Chinese delegation to the fair was to be headed by the chief of the Chinese National Travel Administration and also to include tourism officials from various cities and provinces in China who were supposed to meet the tourism officials and travel agencies of Taiwan.

 

Last year, 600 representatives of travel associations from 28 Chinese cities and provinces had attended the fair.

 

Taiwan Visitors Association’s secretary-general Wu Chao-yen said that Chinese tourism operators would not be attending the travel fair this year. They mentioned that they would continue to extend invitations to Chinese operators for next year’s fair.
