2020 has been a challenging and a most unprecedented year. Many events were cancelled. Against all the odds, when many expected that the inaugural New Deal Europe will never see the light of day, we delivered the event in October and welcomed delegates from 36 countries. This was the first ever travel trade marketplace focused on the entire Greater Balkan region. 125 buyers attended, covering markets from Scandinavia in the North to Australia and Brazil in the South, and from California in the West to Hong Kong in the East, making the event truly global. They met with tourism companies from all 11 Balkan countries, and a total of 1250 business meetings were scheduled.
We are really grateful to everyone who supported us and we are delighted with the responses in the post event survey: 95% of suppliers said that the quality of buyers was high or very high and 92% of all delegates awarded the event 8 out of 10 or higher on satisfaction rating.
Significantly, 96% of delegates said that they would return to attend New Deal Europe in 2021.
Let's work together to bring back tourism in 2021.
New Deal Europe 2021 will take place on Monday 12th April, a date that best fits with the contracting cycle of the tour operators, giving you maximum scope to complete meaningful business deals.
We are looking forward to meet you all in person soon. Wishing you love, peace, health and joy this holiday season and lots of travel in 2021.

New Deal Europe
New Deal Europe, is adding Moldova to its portfolio. This brings to twelve the number of Balkan countries which will be represented at its 2021 event. The whole of Greece will also be covered. Previously the event only allowed exhibitors from the Macedonia region of Northern Greece to take part.
Our team has spent much of this year’s WTM Virtual reaching out to potential partners across the Balkans and have had a fantastic response so far. With strong support from the new partners, next year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than our successful 2020 marketplace. In spite of today’s challenges, we are really optimistic for the future of tourism in the region.
Tassos Tsalapatis, owner of Athens based, Hello Travel, who attended the New Deal Europe event in 2020 welcomed the expansion. He stated, "I had so many operators asking me about destinations throughout the whole of Greece, so this move by the organisers makes perfect sense".
Event co-founder Robert Dee said "We are also delighted to welcome Moldova to the next New Deal Europe. It is the least visited country in Europe, and is an unexplored gem with so much to offer. I have visited the destination and had such a great experience. The culture, ancient sites, gastronomy and its exceptional wine tradition provide a wealth of opportunity for UK tour operators, and what’s more, the people are extremely welcoming. We are honored to be able to help the tourism providers in Moldova develop tourism to their country”.
Sergiu Manea, President of the Moldovan tourism employers association welcomed the move saying, "We are delighted that New Deal Europe is giving us this opportunity to promote our destination to the UK tour operators, and we look forward to working with their team in 2021"
The New Deal Europe 2020 event welcomed delegates from 36 countries and was the first ever travel trade event focused on the entire Greater Balkan region It delivered 1,250 meetings in one day. The next New Deal Europe marketplace and forum is planned for Monday 12 April.
In response to requests from buyers, we have added Moldova and the whole of Greece to the portfolio of destinations covered by New Deal Europe. Here is the latest map showing all participating destinations at New Deal Europe events in 2021.
