Engaging the Global Chinese Consumer


Explore Our Trainings

Now that the China market has reopened for tourism, there is much pent-up demand for outbound travel from Chinese citizens who have not been able to leave their borders for three years. Chinese OTA Ctrip is predicting that Chinese outbound tourism numbers could return to 80-95% of pre-pandemic levels by 2023, bringing the world’s highest spending tourist back to your destination!

However, the Chinese tourist’s preferences, booking habits and needs have changed dramatically in the last three years, requiring tourism destinations to refresh their Chinese tourism programs and service standards. To answer this need, the team that designed and delivered Brand USA, Visit California and Los Angeles Tourism’s China-Ready training program is now offering online training courses designed for destinations and hotels around the world to quickly bring their staff and executives up to speed on the changes among Chinese tourists and refresh or create your own China-readiness plan.

CLA has launched the first in its series of online training courses: China-Ready Essentials that is available online for purchase. This course is designed for tourism executives, front-line staff, customer experience specialists and marketing professionals in order to provide your staff with the fundamentals of welcoming Chinese tourists to your destination.

      – Cross cultural understanding and context
      – Chinese consumer profiles, preferences and trends post-COVID
