ITB Berlin 2016: Speed dating at world’s largest travel show

ITB Berlin 2016 is organising two Speed Dating events that will give participants an opportunity to efficiently exchange information and quickly establish numerous new leads.

Whereas the ITB Speed Networking event gathers buyers and exhibitors from around the world, the ITB Blogger Speed Dating is the place where bloggers from Germany and abroad can meet representatives of the global travel industry.

Both events are free of charge.

Following its outstanding success at this year’s ITB Berlin the ITB Speed Networking event is going into another round.

In 2016, due to high demand, there will be two one-hour networking events. Exhibitors who are looking for buyers interested in products and services available in Europe will be able to meet their target group on Thursday, March 10th.

On March 11th, at the ITB Speed Networking event, exhibitors can meet with buyers operating in non-European international markets.

The events will take place on Level B in the CityCube from 09:00 to 10:00.

During five-minute sessions registered exhibitors will be able to present their products and exchange contact information with buyers.

Then, if desired, they can meet up later on the stand or make appointments to arrange further business for another day.

For tour operators the real-life stories and product reviews published by bloggers from all over the globe make them vitally important opinion-formers.

Due to high demand from exhibitors and bloggers, in 2016 at the ITB Blogger Speed Dating event bloggers from Germany and abroad whose main topics include adventure trips, cuisine, luxury travel, travel for the over-65s and family trips will be meeting with members of the travel industry representing, among other sectors, destinations, hotels and PR agencies.

At brief, pre-planned meetings lasting eight minutes each, both sides will be able to exchange information and outline their goals.

This will allow them to establish initial contact, facilitating future cooperation or trips.
