OTM has brought International destination sellers together with U.S. buyers. Opening with a two-day B2B marketplace, OTM supported international travel suppliers from more than 100 countries in face-to-face meetings with U.S. buyers, including tour operators, wholesalers, travel agents and media, NTB added.
“US is one of the World’s Top Outbound markets with 62 million overseas travelers. Spending by US outbound travelers is expected to reach US$ 121 billion by 2020. The US Outbound market has huge growth potential as only about 20 percent have traveled abroad.” said NTB.
