Where is Paradise? Berlin Travel Festival announces the theme of the next event and opens exhibitor registration

Jun 09, 2019

Following the success of the two previous events, from 6 to 8 March 2020 the Berlin Travel Festival will be taking place for the third time, thus bringing a new generation of travellers together with new forms of travel.

As the partner event of ITB Berlin this innovative format will augment the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show on three consecutive days in the heart of the Berlin district of Kreuzberg. In particular, it targets audiences versed in social media and eager for adventure. The event will be held at Arena Berlin again and will attract exhibitors, change-makers, brands, creatives, influencers and industry insiders alike. The organisers’ theme focus is on the individual’s search for paradise. Exhibitors who register by 30 June can take advantage of attractive rates.

Taking as its main theme ‘Where is paradise?’, the festival will underline its pioneering role in promoting mindful, sustainable and responsible travel. The main focus is that if ‘paradise’ is to be more than a mere sales argument then both providers and customers must take a hard look at how, where and why people travel, and replace quick deals and out-and-out consumerism with social responsibility and ecological awareness as well as becoming involved at local level. Speakers and exhibitors will also examine this topic in detail.

Exhibitors can register now

Exhibitors can register now for the forthcoming Berlin Travel Festival in March 2020. The event targets destinations, tour operators, publications, accommodation, equipment and clothing suppliers, transportation companies and start-ups.

Last March, more than 130 national and international exhibitors were represented at the Berlin Travel Festival. In praising the event they said it was “professionally curated”, “not typical for a fair”, “a completely new experience”, and emphasised its disruptive conceptual approach. The festival featured a programme of stage events that combined lectures, workshops, master classes and film screenings. Exhibitors were delighted that some 11,000 visitors attended the event, who they said were open-minded, interested in sustainable travel, eager for adventure, and not least very knowledgeable on the subject.
