Finland Named Partner Destination of ITB China 2018

Finland has been named as the Partner Destination of ITB China, scheduled to take place from 16 to 18 May 2018.

 Around 50 delegates from Finland, which has a strong presence on the show floor, will be representing the country at ITB China this year.

“Finland has proven that it is attaching a great importance in enhancing Chinese tourists’ travel experience,” said David Axiotis, General Manager ITB China. “Finland is running a multitude of visa centers in China, working on e-visa solutions for Chinese tourists and has opened up for Chinese mobile payments systems adding a lot of convenience for Chinese visiting Finland. These are just some examples clearly proving Finland’s devotion to the Chinese travel market, which is a perfect precondition to being ITB China’s Partner Destination.”
