Tourism fair ITB next year only digital

Due to the Corona crisis, the ITB travel trade fair will be held only online next year. "ITB Berlin 2021 will take place from Tuesday to Friday, March 9 to 12, exclusively for trade visitors and purely digitally," the organizers announced on Wednesday.

"We have developed an alternative concept with which, as the world's leading travel trade fair, we can once again offer our partners and customers a reliable platform for global networking, business and content," it was said.
The ITB Berlin - International Travel Trade Show Berlin is often called the "largest travel agency in the world". On the five days of the fair with about 10,000 exhibitors, up to 160,000 visitors came last year. This year's ITB was cancelled in the spring five days before the planned start.
"The pandemic situation remains difficult, especially for the travel industry. With the decision to hold a purely digital ITB Berlin 2021, we are now giving exhibitors and trade visitors the greatest possible planning security," ITB Director David Ruetz announced.
