Some things just seem to go together – peanut butter and jelly, gin and tonic, bacon and. . . well, practically everything.  That’s exactly how we feel about today’s announcement of a partnership between TBEX and ITB Berlin.  They just seem to go together!

ITB Berlin is the world’s largest travel trade show, bringing together destinations, tour operators, booking systems, carriers, hotels, and other travel suppliers.  Last year, this business-to-business show had over 10,000 exhibitors from 180 countries, and over 170,000 attendees.   We’re talking miles of exhibits and booths, meetings, and other events to help the travel industry conduct business and keep informed about the latest news in travel.

This is a big trade show!  And we know that it’s the kind of show that serious travel bloggers are going to want to attend.  That’s why we’re very excited to announce that we’ll be organizing a blogger speed dating at ITB Berlin 2013.  Connecting travel bloggers with travel industry representatives is something that we’re passionate about, and we believe this is a wonderful opportunity for bloggers to integrate themselves within the community and create important business relationships.

Be sure to stop by to meet the ITB team while you’re at TBEX.  You can find them in the sponsor area, and we know they’ll be eager to meet you as well.  A huge thank you to ITB  for recognizing the important role that travel bloggers play in the travel and tourism industry.  Let’s make good things happen.

Details and further information about the partnership and speed dating event will be announced at TBEX Europe in Girona, Spain.  Until we can announce more, just put these details on your calendar and we’ll hope to see you in Berlin.

Dates:  March 6-10, 2013

Location:  Messe Berlin, Berlin, Germany
