Melbourne’s incredible China opportunity
Expressions of interest are closing on June 30 for our Check-in to China program. China is Melbourne’s largest inbound tourism market. Now is the time to understand the China market and develop your China strategy.
Check-in to China is a 6-month immersive experience, in cultural understanding and professional development. It includes a study trip to China, allowing participants the opportunity to gain the most up-to-date insights into the Chinese tourism market.
