Tourism is a major source of income and employment for Italy, and Trade Fairs and exhibitions are an important way of keeping up to date with what’s going on around the world. BIT, Milan International Tourism Exchange, is one of the biggest events in the tourism sector. The 2012 edition will start on February 16 and will finish on February 19, 2012, in Milan, of course.
From an international point of view, such an event held right in Milan, the financial capital of Italy, gives thousand of operators in the industry, the opportunity to approach the latest products and services on the global market and get familiar with fresh ideas which could become a new potential economic growth engine – for Italy, and the rest of the world: because traveling is still something that makes people happy and live longer, a true lifestyle strategy.
BIT 2012, the International Tourism Fair, will be held at Fiera Milano, Milan, Italy, from February 16 to 19, 2012. This exhibition will showcase the whole diversity of traveling.
