ITB Berlin confirms status as world’s leading travel trade show
This year’s edition of ITB Berlin sees a big increase in exhibitors from Asia, Africa, the Arab countries, North America and Europe – and Travel Technology is booming.
ITB Berlin is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and is as successful as ever. From 9 to 13 March 2016 at the world’s largest travel trade show the fair’s organisers expect around 10,000 exhibitors and organisations from more than 180 countries to be in the 26 halls on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.
“The high level of demand from emerging destinations such as Asia and the Arab countries and the growth of popular markets such as Travel Technology are proof of how dynamic the global travel industry is. At the same time, up-to-the-minute and forward-looking themes at the ITB Berlin Convention, where leading experts will be taking part in the debate, emphasise ITB Berlin’s reputation as the travel industry’s driving force”, said David Ruetz, head of ITB Berlin.
