Hosted Buyer programme (EU, Russia, Middle East)
WESTM is focused on getting international buyers to know the potentials and possibilities for doing business in South-Eastern Europe (SEE), and to find their best new partner and supplier. Whether you are in MICE business, or winter & spa tourism, we want to show you that South-Eastern Europe is a place for you.
Our Hosted Buyers Programme is the directed at meetings professionals, wellness & spa and winter tourism professionals, and offers a number of benefits.
The most important suppliers in SEE will be at WESTM, including representatives from national and local tourism and convention bureaus, conference and exhibition centres, convention hotels, special venues, ski resorts, wellness & spa resorts, DMCs, specialist suppliers and other providers.
Acceptance and level of hosting will depend largely of the amount of business conducted internationally, potential and commitment to conduct future business within SEE, purchasing authority, number of the events organised (for MICE) or number of travellers using your services (Winter & Spa tourism):
We offer three levels of hosting:
1) Fully hosted
- fully hosted buyers will enjoy complementary travel arrangements (up to 150 EUR), airport and local transfers, accommodation and hospitality, pre-scheduled meetings, educational and networking programs.
- semi-hosted buyers are enjoying the same benefits as fully hosted buyers but without complementary travel arrangements.
3) Exhibition only
- exhibition only buyers are hosted for the whole exhibition as other buyers, excluding travel and accommodation arrangements, and airport transfers.
If you're applying for the Fully hosted or Semi-hosted option, if not selected, you might be offered a lower hosting option.
