The market’s most unique portfolio of technical workshops is welcoming its latest addition – Buy World, the first foreign-on-foreign workshop, with new exhibition areas.
Bit 2010 is leading the Tourism System to its appointment with recovery.
Bit is “the” marketplace for the Tourism System in Italy and one of the top 4 in the world. This fact is punctuated by its portfolio of technical workshops, which is one-of-a-kind in this market.
The breaking news of this edition is Buy World, a new workshop that focuses on supply and demand in international tourism. This is where 100 Buyers from the most dynamic Southeast Asian markets and 200 Tour Operators and Travel Agencies, representing the supply-side for the more than 140 Countries represented at Bit, can meet up and network in an exclusive appointment and B2B their incoming and outgoing business. Born from a collaboration with UFTAA – United Federation of Travel Agents’ Associations, Buy World is the first entirely “foreign on foreign” Bit workshop, and stands out for its highly innovative nature. This is the sector’s only de-territorialized technical workshop, and realizing it required a remarkable economic and organizational effort.
