we are proud to announce that we will be attending the ITB Festival in Berlin from 7th – 9th March. We are looking forward to connecting with industry professionals, exchanging ideas and showcasing our expertise in railway distribution.
ITB Berlin is the world’s biggest travel event where the future of travel is shaped. Change is THE buzzword at ITB Berlin 2023.
Every year in March the world of international tourism meets at the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show®, ITB Berlin. Since 1966 ITB Berlin has been the cradle, innovation driver and leading platform of the tourism industry and thus the leading trade show for the global travel industry.
Gathering the Who is Who of the travel industry, every year ITB Berlin is the central communication and marketing forum and the largest service trade show for the travel industry.
Despite its size and uniquely diverse range of products and services covering 180+ countries and territories, ITB Berlin is clearly structured: In addition to a geographical breakdown by destination, the halls are also divided by market segments on the most important tourism tracks e.g. Business Travel, MICE, Travel Technology / Mobile Travel Services, Technology, Tours & Activities (TTA), Cultural Tourism, LGBTQ+ Travel, Youth & Adventure Travel, Responsible Tourism, Medical Tourism, Luxury Tourism and Career in Tourism (content source: website ITB).
Let’s meet up and explore the future of rail transportation together! See you at stand number 119.
a long way to go in doubling high-speed traffic by 2030
Even with the railway sector actively promoting improvement initiatives, such as bundled in the CER Ticketing roadmap, there is still a long way to reach a modal shift in mobility with the objective the doubling of high-speed traffic by 2030 as projected by the European Commission.
By identifying and addressing each major barrier that stands in the way of a seamless travel experience across Europe, our collective goals of sustainable growth will be achieved.
why should a public transport solution become difficult if the border is crossed?
