In March, Shake to Win has been actively participating in some of the most important international tourism events around the world. Pursuing our mission to preserve culture by creating intercultural bridges through technology, we are interested in sharing and creating fundamental links with service providers and spaces characterized by the cultural heritage of different countries. We are constantly working to highlight these spots so that they can be seen by the Millennial Chinese tourism market which, as we have previously mentioned, is an audience that has a high potential for economic development.

From March 9th to 12th, the 2021 ITB Berlin was held virtually. It is the leading B2B and networking platform of the world tourism industry with the most interaction of countries, destinations, tour operators, reservation systems, transport, hotels, among others. In short, it is the communication point between tourist services worldwide that provides exhibitors and visitors an ideal space for dialogue that brings together positive points of union that empowers the tourism industry.

During the event, Regional Director (Mexico & LATAM) Rafael Vega Valtierra successfully established connections with key industry officials marking a great expansion opportunity for Shake to Win in Latin America. Discussions and interest on Shake to Win were shared with the likes of Ana Onteneda from the Ministry of Tourism of Ecuador, Cecilia Tapia from the Ministry of Tourism of Uruguay, Daniel Duran from Gran Costa Dorada, and Clementina Del Tejo, the Promotion Director in Mexican Caribbean.

Similarly, International Project Manager Julio César Chinchilla linked up with Associazione Castiglionese Operatori Turistici (ACOT), GENOA tourism board, and Terre Borromeo, which are established in Italy.

“ITB has been a great gathering for those that are leading the industry towards innovative solutions. I am glad discussing about how Shake to Win can empower the acquisition of Chinese outbound tourism. The keyword during these days at ITB has been “collaboration” and I believe the DNA of Shake to Win lies on this principle for supporting culture and activating (the) local economy”

These types of events are of great importance for the tourist diffusion of countries and in this case, China offers a great opportunity for the sector.
