This Event Took Place on Tuesday, March 25, 2014.  Planning for 2015 is Underway.  This Page is for Informational Purposes Only.

Join TTIA for an ALL NEW APPOINTMENT MARKETPLACE for travel industry professionals and industry suppliers!  During 10-minute appointments, travel industry professionals will have an opportunity to meet face-to-face with industry suppliers to learn about the latest products & services they offer.  Suppliers will have an opportunity to promote their business, products & services to travel industry professionals responsible for millions of dollars in buying power. It's Speed Dating for Businesses!
Spring is the best time to hold such a marketplace because it
corresponds well with budget planning cycles.

In a new twist to the annual trade show, the new Travel Industry Marketplace will allow for business-to-business discussions without all the trappings of a trade show booth.  In fact, the travel industry buyers will be seated at tables, and the suppliers will move from appointment to appointment during the course of the marketplace. Suppliers are encouraged to bring a "leave behind" piece for each appointment detailing the newest innovations and offerings for the travel industry. 
(Please note: this is the 2014 opportunity for suppliers to meet with the Texas travel industry as there will not be a trade show as part of the 2014 Texas Travel Summit conference in September.)

Appointment Scheduling
In late February, we will send an email requesting each registrant select the 10 companies from the list of registrants with whom they would like to have an appointment. TTIA will create each attendee's appointment schedule using a matching system. We will endeavor to set up appointments with your requested list. However, you may have an appointment with an attendee who you did not request but that requested to meet with you. And due to time restrictions, you may not have an appointment with a requested attendee.
