ITB BookAwards 2017: the winners

Published on : Tuesday, January 17, 2017

itb-berlinThe winners of the ITB BookAwards 2017 have been decided upon. The focus of the Destination Awards is on Botswana, the Official Partner Country of ITB Berlin 2017. Every year, the annual ITB Berlin BookAwards are being voted through an independent jury and on a wide range of different categories and topics. They recognise publications from Germany and abroad, mostly written in German, but also translated into German. The aim of the awards is to draw attention to outstanding travel and tourism publications for the discerning reader. The jury was able to pick several winners in each category. The ITB BookAwards do not confer money prizes.

 

The presentation of the ITB BookAwards 2017 will be moderated by Mary Amira and takes place on Friday, 10 March 2017 at 4 p.m. in the Palais am Funkturm, the new official awards venue of ITB Berlin.
