The 25th IT&CMA and 20th CTW Asia-Pacific opened today to a furore of event highlights, activities and entertainment to deliver a comprehenive anniversary edition. The MICE and corporate travel management trade event is expecting to welcome up to 2,900 delegates over three days with more than 100 business, networking and education sessions lined up.
Part of the anniversary highlights encompassing a future-ready theme include two light-up photo walls where delegates can leave congratulatory wishes and view milestones in the doublebill event’s history, a variety of booth activities and entertainment hosted by major pavilions throughout the exhibition, a deeper industry dive down at the education and conference sessions.
Expressing his appreciation, Darren Ng, managing director of TTG Asia Media, said: “We have come a long way since IT&CMA’s inception in 1993 and CTW Asia-Pacific’s in 1998, starting this series of events when we realised that the market lacked specialisation in and around the Asia-Pacific MICE and corporate travel market. Since then, we have propelled forward alongside the industry, benchmarked against global standards and positioned our region competitively with the trust and commitment our clients have placed in us.”
Delegates were also keen to share their own IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific journeys in support of the event to reinforce the value they achieved over the years of participating. The 2017 show will feature more than 800 participating exhibitors and 590 meetings and incentives, association, corporate travel buyers, and media coming together to fulfil their business objectives and market activation goals.
