Miss Out on Asia and You Miss Out on Half the World's Opportunities
Asia, the world’s largest and most populous continent with over 4 billion people is set to emerge into the 21st century as one of fastest growing economies in the world.
To ignore this phenomenon is to lose out on the vast potential of markets and returns the Asian economies are churning out at rapid growth rates today. The Asia-Pacific is expected to receive more than 100 million MICE tourists by 2015, up from 40 million in 2002. Corporate travel in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to make up about a third of a global market worth US$900 billion with China, Japan and India leading the way.
What better platform is there than a tradeshow to showcase ‘Asia to the World’ and ‘the World to Asia’? Asia is a MICE and business travel destination hub and a source for MICE and business visitors.
Attended by some 2,000 delegates from more than 60 countries every year, the 18th IT&CMA is the premier trade exhibition promoting the Asian region as a MICE destination as well as a market for MICE visitors. Since 2004, IT&CMA has been co-located with CTW (Corporate Travel World) Asia-Pacific, the must-attend conference and exhibition on Travel & Entertainment (T&E) management for the Asia-Pacific region.
Together, IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific 2010 cover all the dream destinations and itineraries, inspiring products and services from India to Vietnam, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei, Australia and New Zealand.
That’s half the world covered at this unique 2-in-1 Doublebill (two events in one location). Secure your place at the combined MICE and business travel trade event hosted in Asia annually. It’s your Asian connection to the travel and trade-related professions and professionals.

The World's An Oyster
The crème de la crème of MICE and corporate travel suppliers from Asia-Pacific and beyond will showcase their products and services to international buyers and Asia-Pacific corporate travel managers/planners under one roof. Over the years, IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific – two focused shows – have grown in size and stature. Annually, the event aims to attract over 500 quality MICE buyers and travel managers/planners from the trade, corporate and association sectors from the region and the world.
IT&CMA sells Asia-Pacific to the World and the World to Asia-Pacific. The region remains exciting and strong as a source and destination for visitors of the MICE industry.
CTW Asia-Pacific is the first and best ROI (Return on Investment) event on Travel and Entertainment management for travel managers in the Asia-Pacific region.
Specials of the Show
GIFTS & PREMIUMS SHOWCASE
With a demand for incentives and promotional products for their marketing, hospitality and travel industry organisations form a potential market for gifts and premiums manufacturers and exporters. The Gifts and Premiums Showcase is the perfect opportunity for manufacturers and exporters of G&P to profit from the million-dollar corporate, incentive travel and meetings (corporate / motivational / association meetings) markets!
In a bid to create public awareness and reduce the environmental impact of business operations, organisers and meeting planners have been adopting green practices, a strategy that has helped their companies create business value and cost effectiveness. The imperative to go green has spun off increased demand for green suppliers as more corporates enforce green purchasing policies as a commitment to lessen ecological footprints in the MICE and business travel industries.
In support of the green movement, IT&CMA and CTW 2010 will be using bio-degradable lanyards and badge holders from Kleertech, maker of the BIOTECH™ Badge System.
BIOTECH™ Badge System products are made from Anaerobic PVC, OXo PE, or corn based PLA. The BIOTECH™ Badge System is the first event identification solution to offer an entire green product line - from badge holder to lanyard, link and/or clip that will not negatively impact the environment.
