The Shopping Tourism Industry's

Biggest Hosted Buyer Programme

Shopping has become one of the largest and most important components in international tourism. Shopping is one of the major categories of tourists' expenditure and forms part of the destination choice or in many cases, the primary motivation for visiting a destination.

An unmissable opportunity exists for global destinations to benefit from this booming market trend by developing unique shopping experiences to grow inbound international tourism arrivals.

The World Shopping Tourism Summit delivers a global shopping tourism trade audience, with the biggest international buyers, delivered directly to your stand.
