Azerbaijan Tourism Board (ATB) will host its biggest virtual travel trade event “Travel Business Azerbaijan Online” (TBA 2020) on October 14, 2020. The online event will bring together local and international tourism professionals in hopes to forge partnerships and profitable business deals.
Organized by the Azerbaijan Tourism Board and supported by the State Tourism Agency, the event aims to bring together 300 buyers from China and South-East Asia, Russia and CIS countries, India and South
Asia, Europe, and GCC countries to establish direct communication while also serving as a platform to showcase the tourism potential of Azerbaijan. Buyers and exhibitors both will have an opportunity to appoint meetings with each other as well as to sort exhibitors based on their target markets and products.
Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, when the tourism and hospitality sector has been hit the most given border closures, travel restrictions and the need to stay home and self-isolate, ATB has prepared a 4-phased recovery plan to ensure a smooth transition into the post-pandemic era. As part of the actions taken within the first phase of recovery, ATB is exploring new paths to overcome these obstacles, find innovative solutions by focusing on virtual communication and online tools to promote the destination.
“In these challenging times it is more than ever important to reconnect and keep in contact with our partners and industry stakeholders globally and accelerate our proposition with Travel Business Azerbaijan Online. It will be mutually beneficial for local industry and representatives from key source markets to connect with the local tourism and hospitality industry on this large scale, to build fruitful partnerships,” said Florian Sengstschmid, Chief Executive of the Azerbaijan Tourism Board.
