The 7 th Macao International Travel (Industry) Expo (hereinafter referred to as the "Expo" or "MITE") will be staged at Cotai Expo Halls D-E, the Venetian Macao from 26 th to 28 th April 2019. The Expo is expected to highlight Macao's role in facilitating the Belt and Road Initiative and cooperation across the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, making the best out of the position of the Macao SAR as One Center (the World Centre of Tourism and Leisure) and One Platform (the Commercial and Trade Cooperation Service Platform between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries). At the historic time of the 20 th anniversary of Macao's return to China, the MITE 2019 will seek to go beyond the B2B and B2C patterns, to facilitate information accessibility and cooperation within the world tourism industry, and to provide a chance for Macao tourism enterprises and tourism-related personnel to exhibit their products. We hope that, by promoting cooperation with countries along the Belt and Road, the Portuguese-speaking countries with close link with Macao and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area city clusters, we can develop a tourism community for the integrated development of Tourism industry covering Macao, the Mainland of China, other places in Asia, Europe, Latin America and beyond.
The MITE 2019 is expanded to cover an area of 15,000m2 with 750 exhibit booths in total, featuring six key elements of the tourism industry-dining, lodging, transportation, entertainment, sightseeing and shopping.
Exhibitors include travel agencies, hotels, touring attractions, tourist transportation and other tourism-related service providers in Macao and around the globe.
