About the trade show
Over one thousand meetings in one single day
Buyers from 10 countries at the Contract Market
15% of buyers from USA
TCV is holding its annual Contract Market yet again this year, one of the best positioned and evaluated events of its kind for tour operators in Spain. The TCV Contract Market is held on the day prior to the opening day of the fair, Thursday February 25th. A total of 66 tourist sellers are taking part this year and over 70 buyers from both here in Spain and abroad, among which we could highlight Thomas Cook, Booking, Eventives, Squirrel Travel, Kuoni, Expedia and Marraketa Tours, among others.
Over one thousand meetings are forecast during the day-long event, based of the numbers enrolled and the programmed agenda. The TCV Contract Market is an international business event with areas set aside for personalised meetings encouraging direct contact between buyers and sellers of tourist products and services. The Contract Market is basically an agenda of pre-arranged meetings, with an average of 17 per seller.
The sellers are coming mainly from the local region (Valencian Community) as well as 21 different provinces in Spain, Italy and Andorra. On the other hand, the demand is represented, besides Spanish buyers, by 11 tourist operators from USA and buyers from Italy, Germany, Brazil, Belgium, Poland, Holland, Czech Republic and Norway.
The Contract Market will be centring particular attention on MICE (Meeting, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions), as well as short-break and weekend tourism. Other products on the rise are health and spa tourism and wine tourism, increasingly more popular with international tour operators.
The TCV Contract Market is the perfect occasion for players in the tourist industry to make new business contacts. The event is open to all agents and players in the sector with the capacity to negotiate and commercialise, whether exhibitions at the fair or not. Taking part are national and foreign tourist businesses, wholesale operators and agencies, public and private organisations, conference organisers, theme parks, hotel chains, tourist complexes, travel agencies and other agents in the industry.
