IPD to connect European tour operators to new partners in emerging destinations at WTM
The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) will once again be present at the international tourism trade fair World Travel Market (WTM) in London. From 7th to 9th November, the IPD will present selected tourism companies from Ecuador, Nepal, Tunisia and Uzbekistan that specialise in innovative and sustainable tourism products. Their offer includes unique accommodations, extraordinary tours and high-quality services combining cultural and nature highlights and meet the latest sustainable tourism requirements.
The IPD, as a tourism promotion initiative, has carefully selected its partner companies and prepared them for the European market requirements. At WTM London, international tour operators can get to know the diverse offer in the four IPD partner countries and expand their portfolio of eco-friendly travel offers. The IPD’s matchmaking services are free of charge.
Exhibiting companies at WTM London include companies from Tunisia specialising in cultural tourism and eco-lodges. Nepal offers not only hiking tours through the Himalayan Mountain region and cultural walks to the historic sites of the Kathmandu Valley, but also stays with local host families. Uzbekistan, a destination on the Silk Road, also has great potential for sustainable travel. Besides historical and cultural tours through Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva, the offer includes botanical tours, bird watching, community-based tourism and trekking tours. Ecuador has a wide variety of attractions for sustainable tourism – be it the famous Galapagos Islands, the impressive mountain landscapes of the Andes or a visit to an Achuar community in the Amazon rainforest.
