Event details:


In response to suggestions and demand at CSTC 2019, this year’s Conference adds two exciting events:

  1. Pitching slots for destination & brand presentations!
    Be part of an exciting group and use a 5-minute slot to present your business to an audience of industry professionals.
  2. Day 2 Morning FAM Trips!
    To encouraging the visiting delegates to stay the night and experience what the area around Cambridge can offer, we will be offering special rates (1-3 nights) in partnership with the hosting venues plus morning familiarization (FAM) trips to must-experience locations on the second day of the Conference (27 Feb).

– Networking & Discovering:

CSTC2020 is the ideal platform for networking and making deals with leading service providers. This year’s new blocks for destination & brand presentations bring the best directly to you.

Exhibitors and Sponsors gain extra advantages including being given the comprehensive event programme in advance, enabling you to plan appointments in advance so you can maximise your time and connect with the right people.

The conference is the one annual event that showcases the expectations and potentials for inbound tourism from China. From large corporate MICE adventurers to small groups of travellers, this is the convenient one-stop platform for sourcing international and domestic possibilities and solutions.

Delegates will have access to specialist industry knowledge through keynote speakers and panel discussions featuring leading stakeholders of the Cambridge and inbound tourism sectors. Learn about future trends, emerging opportunities and exhibitions of the area’s finest resources.
