ITB launches global website for networking, industry news and virtual conventions

Published on : Thursday, March 5, 2020

ITB is offering digital services 365 days a year by launching itb.com which is now open to everyone. The English language platform will be ideal for networking and content and there will be an ITB Virtual Convention from March 5 to 11 having more than 20 exclusive live streams and videos on demand.

 

 

Despite the cancellation, the world’s leading travel and trade show is establishing a completely new networking platform for the world’s travel industry.

 

 

It is expected that the global website will bridge the gap between real-life meetings and digital networking, and feature innovative tools for business, networking and exclusive content.

 

 

Martin Buck, Senior Vice President, Travel+Logistics, Messe Berlin GmbH said that in  these very difficult times the tourism industry needs ITB more than ever.That is why, at the forward-looking events of the ITB Virtual Convention, leading speakers from ITB will be discussing how the world’s travel industry can harness intelligent strategies to make sure it remains future-proof even in a challenging environment. In the wake of the latest developments, discussions on how the industry can deal with the coronavirus will play a key role. Between 5 and 11 March 2020 viewers can follow more than 20 exclusive live streams and videos in English and German, some in real time, some time-shifted, on itb.com. Afterwards, they will be made available as videos on demand.

 

 

 

They are trying to establish a key platform and travel network which has no parallel and can be made use of in every market around the world by launching the new website.

 

 

They want the business, content and networking available throughout the year and provide easy access for newcomers to the industry.

Users will get the relevant travel industry contact information through the AI-based Travel Network which is a self-teaching system.

The Travel Network can easily  accessed by all registered attendees at ITB Berlin 2020  who got a personalised ticket from the ITB ticket shop.
