TB Asia, Asia’s Leading Travel Trade Show, organised by Messe Berlin (Singapore), has announced an exciting line-up of conference and keynote sessions for this year’s ITB Asia Conference.
The event is the premier knowledge hub for travel executives to be informed and inspired on the latest trends and development in travel.
Co-located with MICE Show Asia and Travel Tech Asia, ITB Asia will once again be held as an in-person event from 19 – 21 October at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
“Go Big & Go Forward: Travel Industry on the Road to Recovery and Growth” will be the overarching theme for this year’s conference.
Tourism reopening across countries worldwide has been having a positive impact on global travel demand, and Asia Pacific is seeing a strong and growing pent-up demand for travel.
Travel and MICE businesses need to go big to tap on and maximise the growth potentials created by various trends in specific industry sectors and go forward to overcome the challenges in the market including the competition and also the global economy, said Katrina Leung, Managing Director of Messe Berlin (Singapore), the organiser of ITB Asia, MICE Show Asia and Travel Tech Asia.
