Swift. Intense. Efficient. Practical. Productive.
The MTS Trade Exchange connects buyers (tour operators, wholesalers, online travel agents) with suppliers (destinations, resorts, lodging, transportation, ski rentals and ski schools and more). Over a two day period you can schedule up to 50 appointments with the companies you want to meet with.
During the pre-scheduled meetings suppliers have the opportunity to select from a group of over 150 buyers, including the largest buyers from the U.S. and Canada and over 50 buyers from around the world, including Europe, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan.
The Group Exchange features major ski clubs and ski councils who are anxious to learn about International resorts for their upcoming group trips of 20 – 500 people. Over 120 ski clubs attend MTS, ready to learn about new destinations, with 75% of them taking international trips at least once per season. Suppliers often leave the Group Exchange with five or more new group bookings each year.
