WIT-Web In Travel, in association with PhoCusWright, has sealed a marketing alliance with the 2008 China Travel Distribution & Technology Summit (CTD&TS).

WIT will be held in Singapore on October 21-22 at Suntec City while CTD&TS will be held November 20-21 at the InterContinental Pudong Hotel, Shanghai.

Both events are opening two of the largest trade shows in Asia – WIT will open the inaugural ITB Asia (Oct 22-24) which has already sold out all 500 booth spaces while CTD&TS will open the China International Travel Mart on November 20 - 23 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center.

Both events are also supported by PhoCusWright, a travel industry research authority on how travelers, suppliers and intermediaries connect.

“Last week, China announced it has overtaken the US in terms of Internet users – 253 million versus the US' 220 million. The numbers may not be as staggering in other Asia Pacific markets but one thing is certain – the rapid rate of adoption of the Internet by Asia's youths and the quantum leaps being made in technological infrastructure in the region are fuelling one of the most exciting phases in the Asia Pacific online travel market,” said Yeoh Siew Hoon, Conference Producer of WIT.
