New Delhi, Jan 17, 2015 - Registration for the International Hosted Buyers’ program at the third edition of WTM Latin America is now open. The event, which occurs simultaneously with the 43rd Commercial Braztoa Meeting, from April 22-24 at the Expo Center Norte in São Paulo, will offer the opportunity for up to 150 highly-qualified and professional delegates interested in Latin America to be hosted.

The delegates selected will represent both the Leisure and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Congresses and Exhibitions) sectors of the travel industry and during the three day event, will be offered a 3-day tailored program of activity that will enable new business to be agreed.

Since the inaugural WTM Latin America in 2013, the Hosted Buyers’ initiative offers benefits such as pre-scheduled meetings with selected exhibitors, a contribution towards their travel, along with organized transfers and accommodation, and other benefits.

At WTM Latin America 2014, around 3,000 pre-scheduled meetings took place with the array of Brazilian, Latin American and International exhibitors. This lead to US$341 million worth of business deals being generated as a result.

Among some of the top Hosted Buyers’ from last year included:

To be selected as a Hosted Buyer, the professional must meet a certain criteria as well as having a key interest in Latin American products and business potential. Those interested in the program must complete the form available from the event website, no later than February 13, and will be then vetted by the team. More information can be found here


Lawrence Reinisch, Exhibition Director for WTM Latin America said: “WTM Latin America is an event that promotes Latin America to the world and the world to Latin America, whilst also promoting sustainable business.”

“Known as the most international B2B tourism event for the industry in the Americas, WTM Latin America continues to lead the way with such initiatives for its visitors and exhibitors to do business, ensuring people can really make the most out of their time during the three days with all the relevant inbound and outbound companies in both the leisure and MICE travel sector all under one roof.

“A wide spectrum of seminars and forums offering the latest opinions, research and insight will also offer the ideal environment for professionals to discuss the challenges and identify the best opportunities in the sector.”

Exhibitors that have confirmed their participation at this year’s event include countries such as Peru, Chile, Mexico, USA, France, Switzerland, Norway, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Morocco and India. Hotel chains such as Accor, Hilton and IHG has also secured their spaces as well as airlines Avianca and Air France.
