Reconnect and Recover is the main theme of International Travel Expo (ITE) Hong Kong. While it will not be as large as pre-COVID levels, there will be 50% more countries and regions exhibiting than in 2021. In fact, there will be 27 exhibiting travel destinations, including 21 official pavilions. Japan will be especially well represented with 10 regions or prefectures taking part.
Held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wanchai on Hong Kong Island, the fair will offer a great chance for holiday makers to “preview” potential travel destinations from the four corners of the globe. The expo will run from 18 to 21 August 2022.
A highlight for many visitors to the International Travel Expo is the large number of photo opps.
There will be mascots wearing national costumes, colourful 3D backdrops, and entertainers wearing ethnic costumes.
One of the most spectacular props this year will be the World’s Largest LEGO@Ship Model.
Targeted at members of the travel industry, about 50 travel seminars will be held during the expo.
Travel seminars will cover a range of topics. Most of them will be put on by exhibitors introducing their travel destinations.
A handful of cultural performances will be presented on the Grand Stage during the first two days of the expo.
