Visitors to the partner event of ITB Berlin can look forward to a wide range of change-makers, brands and industry insiders and find out about travel trends now and in the future. This event, which is taking place in Berlin Kreuzberg, targets a new generation of travellers who can relate closely to sustainability, adventure and new media. Exhibitors scheduled to take part include destinations from around the world.
Australia will be strongly represented for example, with several of its states attending. Visit Brandenburg will impress visitors with its activities, ranging from hiking to surfing. Azerbaijan will have information on highlights in the Caucasus region, and South Tyrol will present its unique combination of Alpine mountains and a Mediterranean lifestyle.
