Rocky Mountain International
March 6-10, 2013
What is International Tourism Bourse?
ITB is one of the largest travel shows in the world and continues to be a very strong show for the RMI states, based on both the participation and the number of business contacts generated. Private sector participants are able to exhibit in the RMI booth and are able to book business on site and create a high profile.
International travel and tourism shows offer some of the most cost-effective opportunities for developing overseas markets, introducing new products and finding buyers, and the Discover America Pavilion, organized in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association, provides U.S. exhibitors with a choice of economical and hassle-free participation alternatives.
Appointments: There are no prescheduled appointments at ITB; however, our representatives work hard to invite and schedule tour operators, travel agents and journalists to visit our booth. During the show, RMI and State personnel will be available to make introductions and provide background for the German trade and media.
Shared Leads: RMI will provide all participants at ITB with a detailed lead report and executive summary of all meetings that take place at the booth during the show. These leads will be provided to you within 15 days of your return from Germany.
When and Where is ITB?
Annually held at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds in Berlin, Germany, the 2013 date is March 6-10. The show opens on Wednesday, March 6th and closes on Sunday, March 10th. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m each day. RMI staff will be available to assist with set-up starting on Tuesday, March 6th. Departures are planned for March 11th.
Orientation and Set Up
Prior to attending the show, there will be a briefing on the evening of March 5th to outline who our German representatives have invited, what they will be looking for, and who they want to meet with.
We will hand out badges and answer any questions prior to the show. RMI personnel will also visit the booth to make sure that materials are unpacked and ready
