New prospects for today’s tourism industry: taking as its motto ‘Travel Different’, from 8 to 10 March 2019, the second edition of the Berlin Travel Festival takes place at Arena Berlin.
At the official partner event of ITB Berlin, more than 130 exhibitors will present the latest products for individual travellers, families and adventurers. Kicking off the festival on 8 March is ‘Shop Shift – A Trend Lab for Creative Minds’. At this conference, leading industry figures will discuss the future of the travel retail industry. The focus is as much on innovative concepts and technological solutions as it is on the future of global leisure and retail experiences.
Exhibitors represent destinations, accommodation, gear, mobility, publications, travel advisors, apps, start-ups, and more. International destinations include Australia, Azerbaijan and Nicaragua. The mobility sector will be represented by Mercedes-Benz, roadsurfer and GoEuro. BoutiqueHomes, UNYCU Hotels & Locations, B4 Beach Club Tanzania and Ecocapsule present accommodations of a different kind. Camping fans can find all sorts of inspiration at PiNCAMP Powered by ADAC. Travel advice experts from G Adventure, STA Travel and Unplanned are offering first-hand information. At Heimplanet will be where visitors can find advice on travel gear, and Foto Meyer will be bringing along Nikon, Panasonic, Sony, Fuji Film and Polaroid.
The stage events feature a mixture of lectures, workshops, master classes and screenings. There is a colourful mix of topics: over 150 speakers and travel professionals share their knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise. They will have stories about unusual adventures, looking at travel trends, kicking off discussions about responsible travel and the environment, and revealing tips for topics such as travelling with children or photography. Lecture topics range from personal development and pursuing an industry career to digital nomadism. Speakers include Simon Messner, who will talk about his passion for the mountains, which he shares with his father, celebrated mountaineer Reinhold Messner.
