What is the total number of participants for this event?
Brand USA Travel Week Europe 2019 will welcome over 300 participants. In order to assure quality meetings, we are attempting to maintain a 60:40 ratio of Buyers to Exhibitors.
How did you determine the ratio of Buyers and Exhibitors?
After careful consideration, Brand USA believes the 60:40 ratio results in the most optimal quantity of meetings for Exhibitors, while still assuring quality Buyers.
What do you mean by enrichment?
Our intent is to provide both Buyers and Exhibitors opportunities to hear from experts on anything from best practices in business to problem solving. The speakers will be exciting, engaging, and bring new themes to the travel industry.
Will Brand USA Travel Week Europe take place in 2020?
Yes. Exact dates and location to be announced.
Does Brand USA Travel Week Europe replace other trade shows?
Brand USA Travel Week Europe is unlike any other trade show, in that it is a celebration of the United States, bringing together U.S. Exhibitors and European Buyers to conduct meaningful business, share Enrichment Series learnings and network to cultivate relationships. Attendees of Brand USA Travel Week should think of this event as complimentary to other in-market trade activities.
Does Brand USA still intend on supporting IPW?
IPW is and always will be the one opportunity where the world comes to America; and as such, will always be an essential part of Brand USA’s marketing effort.
How does the appointment scheduling work?
Attendees are invited to create their online profiles on our unique appointment system. Once all profiles are complete, you will have access to the full list of Exhibitor and Buyer profiles so that you can select with whom you would like to meet, as well as monitor which companies have selected you.
The match-making system works by asking you to rank your preferences from highest to lowest. A mutual selection will increase the probability of an appointment being generated. There is also the option to block certain companies with whom you would prefer not to meet.
Once submitted, the system will run the match-making process and produce your provisional schedule, which you will then be able to view online, download as a PDF and/or print. There will be the opportunity to go online again to personally refine your appointments, fill any gaps, and message attendees to arrange additional meetings.
