The China delegation consisted of a record-setting 109 attendees.

The event, which showcases U.S. destinations and travel products for foreign operators, wholesalers and agents, facilitated more than 95,000 buyer-supplier meetings, expected to account for 8.8 million additional international visitors to the U.S. over the next three years.
