ITB Berlin attendance remains stable at last year’s level
The ITB Berlin Convention has also recorded a slight increase. The individual events that are attracting the highest attendances, each with more than 500 participants, are “Social Media: Lessons from the Leaders” and the presentations by the “ITB World Travel Trends Report.” Ruetz said, “These outstanding figures provide impressive confirmation that the ITB Berlin Convention is the leading think tank for the global travel industry.”
