Dear trade visitors,
 
this was ITB Berlin 2019! The result? The tourism industry is stable and the personal exchange more important than ever!
 
An increase in trade visitors numbers, full halls at the ITB Berlin Convention and successfully launched segments such as TTA or the ITB Virtual Reality Lab underline the fact that even in times of widespread uncertainty due to geopolitical and economic factors, ITB Berlin has retained its position as the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show®.
