The following will welcome the guests with speeches: Governing Mayor of Berlin Michael Müller, President of the Federal Association of the German Tourism Industry (BTW) Dr. Michael Frenzel, Secretary General of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Zurab Pololikashvili, and Minister President of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Manuela Schwesig.

Taking as its slogan ’The Spirit of Nature’, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the official partner region of ITB Berlin, will be fascinating guests with an impressive programme of shows, where tradition will inspire modernity and vice versa. 80 performing artists from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern who are directly associated with the federal state that is Germany’s most popular holiday destination will be taking part. In the ‘Modern Beach Life’ show a historical beach armchair, surfboards and a beach volleyball will meet each other. ’The Sound of Silence’ will highlight the unique landscape of the Mecklenburg Lakeland region to the musical accompaniment of the Baltic Sea Philharmonic Ensemble. In ’Fascinating Palaces and Gardens – The Special MV Edition’, models and the ballerina Lia will fascinate the audience with fashion collections from Designschule Schwerin. In ’Modern Tradition’, Breitling and The Blowboys will take part in an imaginative singing contest between two shanty choirs. Appearing directly from Shanghai via a Skype video link, Kristjan Järvi will direct ’Groovin‘ Boat Engines’, a special percussion performance by the Baltic Sea Philharmonic Ensemble, and at the show’s grand finale the world-renowned DJ and music producer Felix Jaehn (“Cheerleader”) will be conjuring a party atmosphere on stage. His songs have topped the charts in around 70 countries and he has just released his first record.
