CVS Frankfurt July 14th – 16th, 2020
Greetings from Shanghai and I hope this email find you well, healthy and safe at home or in the office. Some news about the upcoming CVS in Frankfurt. After detailed consultation with the Frankfurt Marriott and our partners in Europe, we have decided to re-schedule the CVS Frankfurt for July 14th – 16th, 2020.
This decision was made largely based on the conditions in Europe, with so many business and transportation systems ordered closed by government, it only now seems feasible to reschedule for July, at which time we hope local conditions will improve sufficiently.
The new schedule for the CVS is as follows:
- Tuesday – July 14th – China Training Day & Business Conference
- Wednesday – July 15 – China Visitors Summit – One to One Meetings
- Thursday – – July 16th – China Visitors Summit – One To One Meetings
The safety and health of everyone joining the CVS is of top importance and as such we will institute the following safety procedures onsite at the CVS, including:
- Extra Distancing Between Meeting Tables • Wider Meeting Tables To Provide Additional Space • Temperature Check of All Attendees At The Meeting Room Entrances • Surgical Masks Available For All Attendees • Latex Gloves Available For All Attendees • Sanitizer Gel At All Meeting Tables and Sanitizer Gel Stations Throughout The Meeting Areas • Refreshments Will Only Be Served In Closed Containers – Canned Drinks, Hot Drinks, & Single Serve Food Containers With Disposable Cutlery • Lunches Will Consist Of Boxed Items, Canned Drinks & Hot Drinks and Disposable Cutlery
In regards to evening and other social events scheduled, the same health guidelines will be adhered to in order to secure everyone’s well-being.
In these challenging times, we are appreciate the complexity of the business environment, but we also know that business must go on in a safe and secure manner as no matter, in time, the Chinese travel consumer and shopper will be soon taking to the skies and being one of the most important international clients for many organizations.
We will resume sending weekly updates on the CVS and news as it becomes available.
For 10 years the CVS has been bringing together global Chinese travel buyers with international travel suppliers. More than 1400 businesses have met together to do business – face to face – at global CVS’s.
The CVS is all about business to business. The core of the event is two days of face to face meetings between 140 travel suppliers and 140 Chinese travel buyers resulting in over 7,000 appointments. It’s like speed dating. You get to pick the buyers and they get to pick you too. You will have 50 pre-scheduled appointments with the Chinese buyers – normally about 80% of your selected choices will be confirmed and the remainder is assigned randomly.
The CVS is not a familiarization trip! The Chinese buyers are nominated based on their sales and business into the host region. The Chinese delegate is then chosen based on their responsibility for procuring and developing product. Finally, each Chinese buyer must pay a registration fee (€300) to join the event and purchase their own air tickets to attend, typically about €1800.
In 2020 the CVS – Europe will be produced twice, north and south, with a focus on Summer and Winter bookings.
Many thanks and see you in July!
