Simon Press, Reed Travel Exhibitions Director WTM, said: “The emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa are often grouped together with their potential discussed as a collective whole, despite there being different advantages and challenges in each market.

“This session takes each individual country and looks in details at its strengths and weaknesses to help the audience evaluate which market has the most potential for them.”

The session is moderated by European Tour Operators Association Executive Director Tom Jenkins and European Tourism Council Market Intelligence Group Chairman Leslie Vella, who will use the research to review each country’s potential before introducing expert speakers on each country to give their view.

The session starts with the focus on Brazil and will include expert opinion by wholesaler Andre Fass, Abreu Online Global Director of Product.

At 3.10pm China takes centre stage with Kuoni/ GTA Department Manager Inbound Services Dorothy Teng and China Holidays Group Chairman Carey Fletcher.
