A new edition of the FIT TECH Pavilion is coming
The event takes place within the framework of the International Tourism Fair and each year is established as the unmissable space for professionals who are dedicated to tourism and rely on technology
In 2018, the event took place from September 29 to October 2. During Monday and Tuesday, more than 32,000 professionals attended the fair and 20 exhibiting companies presented products and technological solutions for the sector, such as Travelport, Ist Travel Cruise, The Hotels Network, etc. Among the exhibitors, more than 50% managed to arrange more than 20 business meetings at the fair, and a total of 135 coordinated interviews were achieved.
“It was my first time at FIT Argentina and it caused a great impact on me to see how a fair of this size worked perfectly in all its aspects in perfect harmony as if it were a musical score. Even the smallest detail was controlled and that for me is an unequivocal sign of a previous planning work carried out with expertise. ”Explains Xavier Tizón, Chief Strategy Officer of IST Travel Cruises. 100% of the companies that participated in the third edition of FIT TECH, when consulted, responded that they would be interested in participating again in the event in 2019.
In this context, there are 3 dimensions from which the development of innovation in the industry is promoted:
Travel Forum Latin America
Turtech Space: it is a space for presenting products for the industry. Through interactive content, presentations are made to an audience in search of new solutions to increase their productivity and maximize profitability.
Within the Travel Forum Latam, 4 events were held, with different thematic axes: global, hospitality, tech and innovation. More than 600 people participated in them. “The impressions of the Travel Forum LATAM and speakers were of maximum expectation because there was a constant learning and knowledge climate. It was interesting to see what the present and future bets were for the tourism sector of those present. ”Says Tizón.
This year, the fair will be presented again in La Rural, Buenos Aires, from October 5 to 8. Saturday and Sunday, the event will be aimed at the final public, and 2019 brings a great novelty since, for the first time, trips can be purchased at the FIT. On the other hand, on Monday and Tuesday the audience will be industry professionals.
Walter Diluca, Country Manager of Travelport, comments: “For us, it is the ideal space to meet our current and potential partners, expose the products we have developed during the year and also begin to unveil the news that will come in the near future. "
The fourth edition of the FIT TECH pavilion is already being prepared, and this 2019 is once again positioned as an unmissable event for all those professionals that develop within the travel and technology industry.
