Tourism Industries Expo

The China Tourism Industries Expo to be held from Sept. 5 to 8 will showcase the latest achievements in tourism equipment and products.

The event has been held successfully in Tianjin since 2009 and has attracted representatives from more than 80 countries and regions from around the world.

It is jointly hosted by the China National Tourism Administration and the People's Government of Tianjin. The expo will give a boost to Tianjin's highend tourist projects, especially cruises and yacht tours.

The tourism administration has given approval to the establishment of a cruise tourism pilot zone in the Binhai New Area.

The Dongjiang International Cruise Home Port is Asia's largest, and it received more than 100 international cruise ships from 2010 to 2012. Cruise tourism is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years and many multinational companies have started doing cruise business in Tianjin. Like cruise ships, yacht tourism is also quickly gaining ground in Tianjin. At the moment, the city is building relevant facilities for marinas and plans to build four yacht clubs.

This year, Tianjin also launched aerial sightseeing tours, which will become an important part of the tourism industry.

Looking forward, Tianjin is expected to become the center of cruise and yatch tourism in China.
