Corporate Travel World (CTW) China 2017, held from 21 – 23 March at the Shanghai Exhibition & Convention Center of International Sourcing, China, attracted sponsorship and exhibition support from both new and returning international and Chinese airlines, travel solutions, destinations and hospitality brands. All sponsor brands benefitted from a selection of captive hosted luncheons and coffee breaks with corporate buyers, meeting room branding exposure and championing thought-leadership as panellists at one of the 10 conference sessions.
Airlines led the pack with Air China (Hosted Luncheon) and Delta Air Lines (Panellists) securing the highest Diamond sponsorship tier this year, with three more airlines, China Eastern (Meeting Room Branding, Panellist), Qatar Airways (Networking Coffee Break) and United Airlines (Hosted Luncheon) spotlighting in the Platinum tier. Travel solution brands Travelport (Panellist) and AirPlus International (Panellist) joined the line-up as Platinum and Gold sponsors respectively. From the knowledge gained from mentors, experts and peer-sharing, to the abundance of networking and community building opportunities, as well as the partnership and business prospects gained, the success of the 2017 experience proved that CTW China achieved a new high among all segments of delegates.
International corporate travel buyer and speaker, Pulak Bhaumik, Regional Procurement Lead of Jones Lang LaSalle Property said, "My biggest achievement at CTW China is the ability to be able to catch up with peers around China and around the world. I was able to share best practices with them and mutually learn from them and their success stories. With China going to be dominating in the global footprint, there is no better time than now to be investing time and resources in understanding and building networks in this market."
CTW China 2017 is co-located with IT&CM China.
