ITB Berlin is taking place from March 9 to 12, 2021, but it goes virtual.
ITB Berlin is taking place from Tuesday March 9 to Friday March 12, 2021, but only ONLINE.
This early decision was thought out due to the uncertainty of the pandemic developments in order to better plan the b2b meetings platform and round tables program which can be accessed streaming.
Here is the post published on the ITB website while announcing the change:
ITB Berlin and ITB Berlin Convention will take place from March 9-12, 2021 – as virtual edition – Online trade show packages bookable from 16 November!
Dear customers of ITB Berlin,
under consideration of all circumstances, Messe Berlin has decided that ITB Berlin and ITB Berlin Convention will take place from 9 to 12 March 2021 in digital form as a purely B2B trade fair & conference. Detailed information on exhibitor packages, trade visitor tickets and sponsorship opportunities with worldwide reach will be available on this website from 16 November.
Since 1966, the travel industry has been meeting face to face every year in March in Berlin – many of you know it like the back of your hand, have countless memories of the tourism industry’s annual “class reunion” and benefit from the business relationships established there. That’s why we are keeping our promise right now to remain your No.1 platform for successful business, new and established contacts, inspiration and interaction.
Your feedback over the past months has shown us that networking, knowledge exchange and new business are more relevant than ever.
Please look forward to a thrilling virtual edition of ITB Berlin that brings the entire industry together in one (digital) place as usual.
What you can look forward to at the virtual ITB Berlin 2021:
# New: Four days of B2B, from Tuesday, 9 March to Friday, 12 March 20211
# Three key offerings: Content, Business, Networking
# Customized digital exhibitor packages and sponsoring opportunities
Together, we will digitally link what belongs together: business, network, content and yourself.
Next year in March and beyond. Because one thing is certain: we will remain loyal to you as the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show.
