Tsunami disaster in Japan - Sorrow and dismay at news of death and injuries

Messe Berlin has reacted with sorrow and dismay following the latest news from the disaster-struck areas in Japan and news of the tsunami threat to countries in Asia and Oceania in the Pacific. Messe Berlin is the organizer of ITB Berlin, the world’s largest travel trade show, which until 13 March 2011 is hosting exhibitors from around the world, among them delegations from the countries in question.

Dr. Martin Buck, Director Competence Center Travel & Logistics, Messe Berlin: “Our thoughts are with the victims of the disaster and their families, and with those who may possibly be affected by the tsunami in the coming hours. We would like to extend our sympathies to and express our solidarity with the exhibitors and visitors from these parts of the world. We will help our guests in every way as far as we possibly can to supply them with information on the latest developments in the region.”
