Tourism in Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands is at the forefront of the new global appetite for more adventurous travel. As a result, all travel industry insiders should consider a trip to Copenhagen this 16 and 17 September to the Vestnorden Travel Mart.
The Faroe Islands, Greenland and Iceland join forces to organise the Vestnorden Travel Mart. The countries take it in turns to organise and host the event. This year is Greenland’s turn, although the country has elected to host Vestnorden on the European mainland. Taking place in the convenience of Copenhagen, exhibitors and buyers alike are all able to reach the venue with relative ease, meaning the event promises to be a great success.
All the best things to do in Iceland, Greenland and the Faroes need connecting with international tour companies if they are to be seen and done by international tourists. Amazing natural wonders like Iceland’s Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall, aren’t going to market themselves after all!
Large scale travel expos and conferences like the Vestnorden Travel Mart allow members of the travel and tourism industry to make new contacts, new deals and come up with new ideas which can shape future trends in leisure travel.
A prime example of a shifting trend in travel in Iceland and the West Nordic region is the rapid explosion in the number of cruise ships visiting in recent years is.
Over 80 specialist West Nordic travel companies from all over the world have already paid to partake in the event as buyers and the Vestnorden Travel Mart 2009 has already attracted over 50 fully paid-up exhibitors, a large majority from Iceland.
There is no better opportunity that Vestnorden to interact personally with local agents, guides and national tourist boards if your company is interested in developing its travel services in Iceland, the Faroe Islands or Greenland.
On the other hand, if your business is in the West Nordics offering services to visiting tourists, a trip to Copenhagen this September could potentially net hundreds or even thousands of new customers.
