NAITM’s Marketplace is an annual event aiming to bring together association’s members, so they could extend the collaboration between them. As NAITM is a young organization, the marketplace event helps us to foster the idea that as services providers in the field of incoming tourism, we are all part of the same story we are willing to tell – throughout mutual collaboration and identification of complementarities in our services we could deliver quality incoming tourism offer in Macedonia.
The marketplace event is an opportunity for our members to accelerate their business. We believe that learning about new markets and latest industry trends are topics that adequately balance the attractiveness of the event’s content. Enhancing the content’s quality with lectures delivered by industry experts was essential for us to retain the member’s interest for the event and this is the point where we had been supported by SIPPO and IME – programs implemented by Swisscontact in Macedonia. As such, we constantly met our members’ needs to learn and gain latest information on the tourism topics while this annual gathering slowly becomes cornerstone of association’s yearly activities.
SIPPO and IME programs helped the Marketplace event to become traditional. Throughout the organization we succeed to nurture the passion for belongingness to the association and experienced that we could all benefit from shared values. Furthermore, we identified needs and possibilities for structured management of the association that will further pave the road to development.
