One of Asias fastest growing travel and tourism events, the Beijing International Tourism Expo (BITE), to be held at the Beijing Exhibition Center from 19 June - 21 June 2008, is expecting record numbers this year. As one of the approved events leading up to the Beijing Olympic Games, BITE 2008 will serve as a prelude to the sporting event of the year with an Olympics theme presentation.

The three-day mega tourism event will occupy more than 20,000 square metres of floor space and will showcase over 100 destinations. The event is expected to attract 30,000 visitors.

Greece is participating as Partner Country for the third year running and is taking up the largest exhibit space of 800 square metres. Equally supportive this year are Korea, Syria, Italy, Egypt, Turkey, Czech Republic, India, Pakistan, Sharjah, Morocco, Malaysia, Tunisia, United Kingdom and Japan; most of which have increased their exhibit space by threefold.

First time exhibitors such as Tahiti and Republic of Azerbaijian are also recognising the benefits of BITE with their debut appearance at the event. With over 95% of space confirmed or reserved, BITE 2008 will easily surpass its preceding years performance.

The Hosted Buyers Programme is also on target with some 75% of top-level buyers from more than 30 countries confirming their participation.

The Beijing International Tourism Expo will be open to trade visitors in the first two days and to the public on the last day.
