New Deal Europe, the only trade fair focused on the Balkans and South East Europe, is to hold its first live travel trade marketplace in London on 4th April followed by a virtual global marketplace on the 11th of April.
“Registrations have been coming in steadily since the events were announced at the World Travel Market in London in November”, said Director and co-founder Robert Dee.
And we caught up with both Dee and co-founder, Tine Murn, in Dubrovnik last week to discuss this interesting project.
Suppliers can book for the live event, the virtual event, or can take advantage of a package price to attend both events and capture a global audience of buyers. Full details and a link to register are available on the New Deal Europe website (www.newdealeurope.com).

“Our last two marketplaces have been virtual events, as a result of the pandemic”, said Tine Murn adding that “we are really excited to be able to host a live event for the first time. Holding it in London allows us to capture the buyers from all the important UK and Ireland markets, but as it is also home to many of the inbound operators selling Europe to a global audience, NDE Live will be the perfect place to promote the greater Balkan region to an audience of key buyers.”
