Rimini expo centre is also hosting the debut of Book&Go, a new slant on active tourism

Rimini, 7th June 2019 . The entire product chain of the Travel Industry is ready to meet at TTG Travel Experience, from Wednesday 9th to Friday 11th October at Rimini Expo Centre. Organized by Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), the huge expo of tourism supply and demand continues to look ahead and provide the ideal platform for facing the market´s challenges.

Uniqueness is the key word: the only totally b2b expo in Italy , the only marketplace favouring business and networking opportunities, with its expo area divided into three macro areas (Italy, Global Village and The World), for the 2019 edition (the 56th), TTG Travel Experience will feature an increase in the presence of European destinations, with an ample solid representation of American and Asian countries and the confirmation, after the debut at the previous edition, of the African Village (Hall C2), which aims at addressing a market for Italian outgoing tourism going through an exciting period. Service companies, technology, passenger carriers and tour operators will take their place alongside an increasingly important participation of the major airlines in the Global Village area, while the Italy area will confirm its role as a complete showcase of the tourist facilities offered by the rich galaxy of Italian regions.

A blogger looking for the perfect wave, a mamma blogger, a guide to the Pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostela for everybody, an invitation for a journey that enables travellers to communicate with nature: these are the three points of view proposed by three writers and bloggers (Winki, Federica Piersimoni, Pietro Scidurlo and Alberto Cancian) involved in the Book&Go project, a new feature proposed by TTG Experience 2019 in the new BeActive area, a special project dedicated to active tourism with a tailor-made visit route (in Hall A4).

On the other hand, the special Eatexperience project, in Hall C4, will be conceived to promote and exploit food & wine as a ´tourist product´ and, therefore, highlight raw material, food service and the local areas, under the banner of the search for experiences that draw travellers to cuisine, an Italian-made heritage.

Dedicated to Glamping - the trendiest and most innovative outdoor hospitality . Outdoor Hospitality will be hosted in the Italy area, ´interacting´ with SUN . Beach & Outdoor Style: campsites will be able to present the amenities they provide to meet the demand of Italian and foreign travel agents.
This will highlight a new image for Italian camping which, along with CRIPPACONCEPT, TTG Travel Experience wants to offer as a further opportunity for visibility for camping villages that have been able to successfully interpret the evolution trends of open-air vacations.
Visitors will be met by the claim ´It´s just camping. Till you try it´, with an immersive journey inside a mobile home reconstructed with virtual technology.

In collaboration with Start Up Turismo, as usual, the Next Area will dedicate space to the most innovative start-ups that have appeared on the market, which focus increasingly on new technology, paying particular attention to active and gourmet tourism.

A brand-new Social Media Lounge enriched by a Social Media Team dedicated to the three events (in Hall C3), will on the other hand be provided for all those who promote tourism on the social networks.

As usual, TTG Travel Experience will also mean three days of debates, seminars and meetings to plan the future of tourism and hospitality. The Think Future program . with over 140 events and more than 300 speakers . will present innovation and trends to the market. A single leitmotif - the future - for 7 arenas realized in the heart of the halls of TTG Travel Experience, SIA Hospitality Design (Italy´s national reference expo for the hospitality sector) and SUN Beach & Outdoor Style (international show dedicated to the outdoor seaside and camping worlds), held simultaneously at Rimini expo centre.
