The International Tourism Exchange ITB Berlin is known throughout the world as the leading trade fair for the global tourism industry. Its leading position as an international meeting place is underlined by the fact that more than three quarters of its exhibitors and just under 30% of trade visitors come from outside Germany. It is an ideal opportunity for exhibitors to get their messages out to both trade visitors and the general public. The proven geographical layout of the ITB will be maintained, complemented by a number of sections on special themes: Travel Technology, Airlines/ Airports, ITB Young Travel, Cruiselines, Cultural Tourism, the ITB World of Books, and the ITB Studies Centre, which, along with the training institutions of the international tourism industry, opens up room for dialogue between the business and research communities. Another important part of ITB Berlin is the ITB Congress with its more than 300 events annually. Current tourism trends and the effects of global tourism are examined at a wide array of gatherings, such as forums with tourism experts, special meetings, press round tables, to name but a few.
