During the weekdays from Wednesday to Friday, the trade show exclusively focuses on the B2B visitors from the industry. Furthermore, publishers and media representatives attend the event as well as visitors from the segments of research, education and universities as well as the field of business travelers.

Could you give us some advice to make business in Berlin?

Our clients will deal with so many different nationalities, that I think it is not only German etiquette that our visitors and exhibitors will have to know.
But generally speaking, Germans are very punctual and expect their business partners to be as well. They value their privacy and personal space extremely. So better not ask personal questions related to occupation, salary, age, or family even if you have a well-established friendship.

Always greet women first in Germany and last but not least in German business, a person’s word and handshake are considered his or her bond. If a verbal agreement is made in a business meeting, it is generally considered binding. Summarizing the above, it can be said that, business rules in Germany rely on professionalism, good business sense and formality.

There’s an activity or workshop interesting for visitors?

There are actually many workshops for visitors taking place on each day of the ITB Berlin Convention. These convention workshops satisfy ITB visitors’ demand for an intensive, professional exchange with experts in small groups. This is where valuable contacts are established and individual questions and problems are taken up, for example, the “Mekong Tourism Forum: Human Capital Development” by Jens Thraenhart on 8 March 2017, 15.30 a.m., in Hall 4.1, Room Regensburg or the ITB Marketing and Destination Workshops on Thursday, 9 March in Hall 7.3.

What represents ITB Berlín for the annual calendar of the industry?

As a brand ITB Berlin now also has a huge international reputation. Nine years ago Messe Berlin launched ITB Asia, and in no time at all, it established itself as the leading B2B event for the Asian travel market. This year ITB Asia will celebrate its 10th anniversary from 25 to 27 October 2017.

The launch of ITB China in May 2017 will mark the arrival on the Chinese market. Tour operators including Ctrip, Alitrip and Utour will be represented at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Conference Center. ITB Berlin is pleased to confirm the second edition of the co-branded India show, Bharat International Tourism Bazaar. It is the first pure outbound show for the Indian market, to be held in New Delhi from 21 to 23 September 2017. It is an alliance that focusses on the Power of the Indian Traveler, and the show will be organized by Cross Section Media, the country's first mover in B2B travel marts, initiated over twenty years ago.

Some reasons to don’t miss the show...

ITB Berlin will again create the best B2B platform enabling its exhibitors and trade visitors from all over the world to initiate excellent business dealings and make first-class contacts. The show represents the entire value-added chain of the industry. In addition to the wide range on offer, ITB Berlin is also a leader when it comes to innovation and information about happenings in the marketplace. It stages the largest and most important trade convention in Europe for many years now.

Lastly, can you give us some participation results from the last edition?

In 2016, its 50th edition, ITB Berlin was stronger than ever: some 10,000 exhibiting companies from 187 countries and regions met with 120,000 trade visitors in the 26 exhibition halls, which had been booked up months in advance.
