ITB Berlin is booked up
A total of 10,068 companies from 180 countries are exhibiting on a display area covering 160,000 square meters. South Sudan, an independent state since 2011, is a newcomer to ITB Berlin.
One important innovation was the subject of much debate prior to the show: for the first time members of the general public can book their tours directly with exhibitors on the weekend of the show. Dr. Christian Goke was keen to stress that “this is an experiment. We will conduct a thorough evaluation of our experiences after ITB Berlin and then decide how to proceed.”
A matchmaking event for bloggers is also celebrating its debut this year. On March 7 and 8 this event gives 100 exhibitors an opportunity to meet the same number of international bloggers. 250 bloggers from Germany and abroad have registered at ITB Berlin.
