Press release n. 4 of the 23/09/2019 15.08.09 ( download )

Once more being held simultaneously the three international expos TTG Travel Experience, SIA Hospitality Design and SUN Beach&Outdoor Style organized by Italian Exhibition Group

.Rimini, 20th September 2019 . Increasingly green tourism, vacations under the banner of wellbeing, movement, discovery and physical activity.
But also a search for destinations able to offer unique quality food and wine experiences, expression of genuine Italian-made produce. All this in a context in which new technologies and artificial intelligence impose the utmost attention on ways of searching for, organizing and exploiting vacations. This is a close-up of the tourism business that is about to be outlined by the next edition of TTG Travel Experience, Italy´s unique marketplace leader in the business of tourism supply and demand, which from Wednesday 9th to Friday 11th October, at Rimini expo centre, will attract the entire Travel world, thanks also to the fact that it is held simultaneously with SIA Hospitality Design, the hotel sector show, and with SUN Beach & Outdoor Style, key B2B expo on the world of outdoors, beach facilities and campsites. Three expos that for three days will draw the entire supply chain of the organized tourism market to Rimini. Once again, Italian Exhibition Group, which organizes the three events, will play the role of a driver for development and business, with eyes, as always, on the future and a leitmotif that will connect the three expos: environmental sustainability.

TTG Travel Experience
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.
Thanks to the program of Think Future, there will be 3 days of debates, seminars and meetings to plan the future of tourism and hospitality. Over 300 speakers at over 140 appointments will alternate in nine arenas.

National Geographic will participate in TTG Travel Experience with is campaign ´Planet or Plastic?´. On the hotel industry front, eclectic entrepreneur Michil Costa, President of the Maratona delle Dolomites, will bear concrete witness to how environment-sensitive choices can be put into practice: from the choice of menus to territorial policies. The topic Ecospiagge per tutti (Eco-beaches for everybody) on Wednesday 9th October will on the other hand be covered in the Beach & Camping Arena of SUN by Sebastiano Venneri, national head of Legambiente for Tourism, Sea and Innovation.

This year, TTG Travel Experience dedicates a special project, BeActive, to the combination of vacations and sport, vacation and movement, in all forms. BeActive will not only be an entire hall (A4) focussed on active tourism facilities, but also meetings, in-depth coverage and discussions that will be held in the dedicated Arena.

The special Eatexperience project, in Hall C4, will be conceived to promote and exploit food & wine as ´tourist products´, 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. The ´Ambassador´ of the value of great Italian cuisine for the development of quality tourism will be a top organization: the Gualtiero Marchesi Foundation, which will be featured in Rimini not only by means of the report on the Gualtiero Marchesi World Tour - an initiative that took Italian cuisine on a 10-date trek round the world (Chicago, Tokyo, Paris, London, Berlin...) - but also via an exceptional testimonial like Andrea Berton, Michelin star chef and disciple of Gualtiero Marchesi.

Dedicated to Glamping - the trendiest and most innovative outdoor hospitality . the Outdoor Hospitality project 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.

SIA Hospitality Design
At the 68th edition, SIA Hospitality Design boosts its format linked with design and Italian-made products, addressing three particularly topical issues for the hospitality sector: Design, Water (bathrooms, wellness and pools, but also services, technology, products, cosmetics and treatment); Taste (the most important moments for food service in hospitality facilities: breakfasts and aperitifs). Each project will have a dedicated arena involving professionals, an exhibition and expo areas.

The large space dedicated to ROOMS Hotel Design Lab, realized in collaboration with Teamwork, will host preview presentations of the new concepts for hospitality by means of the proposals of eight prestigious names in Italian hospitality design. Eight hotel room mock-ups which will inspire future investment on behalf of Italy´s 33,000 hotels.

Wellness and innovation will be the leitmotif of the Water area. It will host the Bathrooms project, which will propose 4 full-scale mock-ups of hotel bathrooms, realized by prestigious representatives of Italian-made products.

The Taste area, dedicated to food service, will host ´Breakfast made in Italy´, the product chain project bringing together all the elements that are combined to realize Italian-made breakfasts.

As every year, the Accessible Tourism will be covered in all its different aspects at the expo. The focus will be on architecture and décor of hospitality facilities at the speech held at SIA Hospitality Design, with a view to outlining a new style in bathrooms

Sun Beach&Outdoor Style
For decades, the B2B expo that is a reference point for the outdoor, beach facility and campsite worlds, SUN Beach&Outdoor Style, at its 37th edition, has focused on two macro sectors: the beach facility world and the campsite and village show world.

In the camping sector, the area dedicated to the display of camping lodges and mobile homes, visitors will discover an area designed with Crippa Concept: an immersive journey inside a mobile home reconstructed with virtual technology.

Contests are confirmed, in collaboration with Mondo Balneare, Best Beach Bar, Best Design Beach and Best Italian Beach, to award prizes respectively to the best beach facilities from the point of view of food & beverage, architecture and tradition. This year there will also be the Best Beach top award.
