From March 6-10, 2013 at ITB Berlin the eight Danube countries will be hosting numerous activities showcasing the opportunities for tourism along Europe’s second-longest river.
This is the second year that Germany, Austria, Hungary, the city and region of Bratislava, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and Moldova will be presenting the region’s cultural diversity and a wide range of travel opportunities on the Danube. Both trade visitors and the media can take part in guided tours of the stands of the eight countries on the Danube. Among other events the ITB Berlin Convention will feature a discussion round on “Destination Danube – from a political vision to market-ready tourism opportunities.“
“Cooperation among the countries on the Danube has created huge prospects for tourism in this region”, said Dr. Martin Buck, the director of the Competence Center Travel & Logistics, Messe Berlin.
“The many activities hosted by the Danube countries at ITB Berlin, in which trade visitors and the public can take part, point the way ahead for tourism in this region and will attract the attention of large numbers of holidaymakers and tourism experts.“
Members of the public interested in finding out more about the Danube region will have the opportunity to do so on the Open Days at ITB on March 9 and 10. “Passports to the Danube“ will be handed out at the entrances to the exhibition grounds.
