ITB Berlin NOW Convention

One World. One Industry. One Think Tank

Brainfood that fits to your business. Stay ahead of the game.

What we’re experiencing with COVID-19 was unimaginable for all of us. The tourism world has gone off the rails, COVID-19 has plunged the travel industry into a deep crisis of existence and purpose. And one thing becomes apparent: There is no return to an old normal. Customers will change their travel behavior, tourism providers will exit the market, others will emerge stronger from the crisis.

But we also see crises as opportunities. In crises, undesirable developments can be corrected, better things can be created. The ITB Berlin Convention 2021 will make its contribution by:

  • offering orientation in nebulous, dynamic times
  • providing food for thought for the new purpose of our industry
  • illuminating innovative strategies and business models
  • providing support for the restart of tourism companies

The ITB Berlin NOW Convention 2021 is thus a compass, a spotlight, a source of inspiration and a toolbox for the dawning of a new era in global tourism.

Let’s set off together under our Convention motto:
Rethink, Regenerate, Restart - Tourism for a Better Normal"

We’re currently working hard to put together a very comprehensive, all virtual convention program for you! We’ll be able to share more details with you soon.
