This year ITB Asia 2018 welcomed new exhibitors as it unveiled its largest exhibitor showcase yet. This included Abu Dhabi, Botswana, Canton Sarajevo, Croatia, Fukuoka, Kansai, Mauritius, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Poland, Rovaniemi, Slovakia and Ukraine among many others.

Under the overarching theme of “Travel Re-imagined”, this year’s conference programme delivered major trends provoking disruption across the travel industry and how companies are innovating to stay ahead. Over 260 speakers who are key industry experts delivered insights at the keynote sessions, as well as focused topics on MICE and the corporate segment, travel and tech space and Muslim travel conference sessions.

“Having surpassed last year’s impressive milestone, we have yet again achieved record breaking numbers as we continue to see the show flourish. As we look forward to next year’s ITB Asia, we continue to build and strengthen our efforts in maintaining ITB Asia as the premier event of the year and the go-to hub for remarkable travel content and inspiring experiences,” said Katrina Leung, managing director of Messe Berlin (Singapore).

Following yet another successful edition, the show is already receiving high exhibitor re-bookings for ITB Asia 2019. The surge in interest for next year’s show has been seen from hotel groups. ITB Asia also sees continued strong support from destinations in the ASEAN region; as well as Abu Dhabi, Turkey and Jordan in the Middle East; and exhibitors such as Austria and Lufthansa City Center amongst others. Eastern European exhibitors such as Hungary and Poland have also confirmed their stand bookings for the 2019 show.
