Dragon Trail’s Communications Manager, Sienna Parulis-Cook, will lead a workshop on ‘Essential Online Tools to Reach the Chinese Traveler’ at TTG Travel Experience in Rimini, Italy, on October 9, 2019.
Effectively attracting Chinese tourists requires an understanding of the digital tools and social media channels that they use throughout their journeys, from inspiration and research, through to booking and within the travel destination. Sienna’s workshop will introduce China’s major social media platforms, travel websites, and mobile payments. Attendees will learn where independent Chinese travelers look to find restaurant recommendations, shopping inspiration, and destination information, and how they share their experiences online.
On Thursday, October 10, Sienna will join a panel discussion on the future of the outbound travel from China and its impact on Europe. The panel will be moderated by the Director of COTRI, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Arlt, and include speakers from Tuniu and Roma Airport, as well as an opening talk from the Italian National Tourism Board.
