GL events China is present at the travel industry trade fair in Shanghai.

In 2017, the event organiser Messe Berlin launched the first ITB China fair, a spin-off of the successful ITB Berlin fair, a major event for travel industry professionals.

In order to ensure effective interaction between exhibitors and visitors, ITB China decided to assign a bilingual Chinese-English hostess to each of its corporate exhibitors during the fair, which took place from 10 to 12 May 2017 at the Shanghai World Expo exhibition centre.

ITB China selected GL events China to recruit, train and manage the 200 people acting as hostesses and interpreters for the exhibitors.

GL events China carried out a thorough selection process to ensure each hostess/interpreter had the requisite language skills and the ability to understand the context and challenges of the event.

The fair was a resounding success for the organiser, the exhibitors and the visitors. ITB China aims to double the surface area of the exhibition and the number of hostesses next year.
