Who Are You Going to Meet?
Having established ITB Berlin as the leading market in the world, it’s not a surprise to discover a wealth of visitors and exhibitors across the entire value chain and at every level. Exhibitors run the full spectrum from hotels, tourist boards and tour operators to system providers, airlines and car rental companies. The trade fair is open to both trade visitors, which make up the majority of all visitors, and the public, which allows exhibitors to have first-hand feedback on which tourist offers are sparking interest. Organizers also report that the number of trade visitors has had an uptake of up to 3% - a healthy growth for a fair that’s been in operation for decades.
