Travel Croatia has attended ITB Asia 2019 with our own booth. Known as ‘Asia’s Leading Travel Trade Show’, this year the event was held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore 16- 18 October 2019. More than 27,000 business appointments have been made at ITB Asia 2019 and over 13,000 participants from 132 countries and territories attended the show over three days.
Exhibitors and buyers from across the MICE, Leisure, Corporate, and Travel Tech sectors were brought together to explore how businesses can turn creative ideas into practical initiatives to keep pace with the rapid developments in the travel industry. Across the three days of the exhibition, attendees were able to liaise with popular tour operators and platforms including Ctrip, Booking.com, Expedia, IBM, OYO China, TripAdvisor, Tujia and more. The event also gives grounds for optimism for the future expansion of this dedicated marketplace.
Dr. Christian Göke, Chief Executive Officer, Messe Berlin said: “After 12 years, the new record of ITB Asia 2019 clearly demonstrates that the show is well accepted by the industry around the world as the must-attend event in Asia. We very quickly realized that not only could we benefit from the extension, but that the whole of the global travel industry stood to benefit as well. I am also pleased to know that every year the team and all partners involved work hard to design ITB Asia to go right to the heart of the industry. At ITB, we build unforgettable emotions that link our industry with its people. Attendees can walk away with new inspiration, cultivating relationships and tangible takeaways.”
The next edition of ITB Asia will take place from 21 to 23 October 2020. Travel Croatia has booked our 18 sqm booth at the fair next year and we hope to see you again at ITB Asia 2020.
