    and presentations, and networking opportunities that will ensure a larger industry involvement. we are providing for and encouraging partners to do product launches, meeting with media or select trade or hosting a trade lunch.

    The Timing is Just right, for starters!our understanding is that october is the best time for business. It marks the beginning of the traditional tourist season for India. It is also relatively unhurried time for the trade, and more convenient to attend.For outbound, october is ideal for contracts to be signed before packages for the new Year get launched in the market. this will help expand and grow the market, for both products and also distribution.domestic tourism requires much less lead time, and the busy festive and winter holidays are close on hand.

    About the organizers

    cross section Media is over 40 years in the business, having a number of firsts in Indias history. It was the first mover in B2B trade shows in tourism in India, way back in 1994. our partnerships endured for as long as we ran the event Air India and Indian Airlines, our national airlines, partner hotels, our supporting industry base all these enabled us to host over 4,500 international tour operators from over 50 countries during our 18-year tenure! In 2011, the last year when we exited this event, we were steadfastly tourism focused, growing 25% year on year, presenting 30 countries from around the world, 23 Indian states and some 650 sellers organizations.

    We have been the first movers in trade journalism, with magazine titles such as destination India, travel trends today, Go Now and presently, tourism First. We have put together some of the most exiting tourism literature in the country, for both central as well as state governments. We have run successful industry seminars and have been awarded by both industry associations as well as the Government of India, including two national Awards for excellence in tourism.

    In all our ventures we have distinguished ourselves for quality in contributing to thought processes and brining diverse elements together.

    The economic factor

    Itb berlin is not only one of the most important

    trade shows taking place in berlin but,

    over the past five decades it has

    been a significant economic factor for

    our city.

    More than a trade show

    Itb berlin is more than just a trade

    show - today, all over the world, it

    represents germany, symbolizing

    hospitality and serving as a

    practical example of international

    understanding.

    Itb berlin, in its 50th edition, was stronger than ever: from 9 to 13 March some 10,000 exhibiting companies from 187 countries and regions met with 120,000 trade visitors in the 26 exhibition halls, which had been booked up months in advance. on the purchasing side there was also a further increase in the number of decision-makers: two thirds of the trade visitors stated that they held direct authority for all purchasing decisions. business conducted during the trade show rose from last years figure of 6.7 billion euros to around seven billion this year.

    Itb berlin is thrilled with the prospect of the forthcoming bItb show, later this october in new delhi. we have been for long looking at India and now is the right time to go ahead . we believe we have the right partner, with the right credentials in the Indian market, and we have started what promises to be a rewarding and satisfying journey. we all know how the Indian market is growing, and we hope to contribute to its growth by providing a business platform for the industry at large. bItb is happening at the right place and at the right time in the journey of travel and tourism in this region.

    From a worldwide perspective, we know that travel and tourism will continue to grow. Some markets are economically challenged, others are showing some instability or the other, for a variety of reasons. we do believe that above them all, tourism will enable people to meet each other, understand different cultures and societies and this will foster greater peace among mankind. we do believe that tourism has the power to heal, make people connect and also bring economic prosperity to the local people. If tourism is going to be inclusive and able to permeate at all levels in the receiving markets, then tourism will have a great future. governments around the world recognize this and understandably, the

    desire to promote tourism upfront is only engaging the world. this is one positive sentiment that we see most prominently at every Itb , Martin Buck, senior vice President, Messe Berlin.

    More on ITB Berlin

    dr. christian Gke, chief executive officer of Messe Berlin: never before in its 50 years has Itb berlin welcomed so many trade visitors to the exhibition halls. after this five-day event trade visitors and exhibitors are leaving berlin with a clear message: even in times dominated by a sense of uncertainty people are not willing to do without their holiday trips. conversely, over the past few days the travel industry has made it clear that it can provide suitable answers to the major challenges that it currently faces. Itb berlin has again provided evidence that this trade show, a global market place and a platform for personal encounters, provides a firm foundation for the industry during turbulent times, and in the digital age too it has lost none of its importance for the travel industry all over the world.

    dr. christian gke: currently Itb berlin is not only one of the most important trade shows taking place in berlin but, over the past five decades it has been a significant economic factor for our city. this international show for the global travel industry has also been a remarkable success story for the trade fair sector in germany, and this is something of which our company and the berliners too can be very proud. In terms of its exhibitors and its trade visitors, no other show anywhere in the world has an international structure that can compare in any way with it. Itb berlin is more than just a trade show - today, all over the world, it represents germany, symbolizing hospitality and serving as a practical example of international understanding.
