The October road show brought the staff of Welcome Chinese to Dalian and Harbin, North-Eastern China, a huge area made of three provinces known in the mainland as “Dongbei” (东北, east-north), with a population of about 107 million.

On the occasion, 21 representatives of travel operators and tour agencies were met. Welcome Chinese displayed the whole range of its partners. Starting from the Certification itself – with Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, for which hotels and hotel chains are eligible –, in fact, there was to introduce the acknowledgement of the Red Certification by different kinds of tourism businesses. Airports of Rome and Paris achieved it, together with museums and archeological sites in Italy, shopping malls and amusement parks in Italy and Dubai and railway companies. Among hotel chains, Welcome Chinese signed this year partnerships with IHG and NH Hotels.

The Certification, with its four levels including the Red, that targets tourism businesses like the abovementioned, is the only recognized by China Tourism Academy, branch of the China National Tourism Administration. In 2015, before Dongbei, road shows – including participation to major tourism fairs – were held in Wuhan, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Beijing.
