Road to the Chinese travel market
WTChat is developing with the support of the World Tourism Alliance (WTA). The project is coordinated by the Supervisory Board formed by the WTA association members. The Chairman of the Supervisory Board is the General Secretary of the Chinese Association of Travel Services, Sun Guizheng.
Finding partners in China, both for hosting travelers in your country or sending your travelers to China, requires a certain process, which may deviate from your typical practices. You would have to find a messenger for communication, overcome the language barrier and prove your credibility. WTChat has the tools to deal with all those potential issues.
Help finding verified partners around the world
Promote your business or organization by becoming visible to travel professionals. Create a profile with all the relevant information, enhance it with information about your travel products and market them through a special offers page.
Provide communication tools
With WTChat, you can contact any organization around the world, create group chats and share best practices with your community. On top of this, remove the language barrier by moving communication with current and new partners into our chat with the auto translation service.
Gives access to the audience to achieve your promotion objectives
Run online and offline events and send digital invitations to WTChat community members from around the world. Whether your goal is to promote a certain travel destination or share a personal business story, WTChat provides access to the audience you need and provides the tools to run an organization’s events calendar.
Speed up the processes and save costs on business travel
It may sound surreal now, but our project challenges the traditional way of establishing business contacts from “in person only” to the online acquaintances format. Moving communication to a digital format also makes achieving agreements faster and doesn’t force you to wait for a certain offline event to start building connections.
We bring travel associations from around the world together
We aim to connect various travel associations from around the world and provide facilitation for cooperation and travel development. By running negotiations with travel associations and signing the agreements, we understand which associations provide the best care and professional support for their members. By attracting such associations to WTChat, we provide the opportunity for sharing best practices and agreeing to create joint projects for boosting tourism development worldwide.
Unique verification process for travel professionals
When looking for partners, it is important to know whom to trust. And while you make your own decision for partnerships, the verification process matters. Thus, you cannot simply register your business or organization on WTChat. The personal login and password is distributed to association members only. This is done because we believe that being an association member means that you conduct business respectively.
The professional business to business platform that works everywhere
While some of the other platforms are subject to restrictions in some countries, our platform opens up professional networking opportunities without borders.
All kinds of tourism community members on one platform
We are working on attracting local guides, transport companies, souvenir shops and department stores, tour operators, national tourism administrations and tourist information centers to create profiles and become available for attracting partnerships. And while every big goal takes time, we are positive that the content variety will be unrivaled at the end of our mission.
