2014 Testimonals

Hear from Industry Leaders, Buyers and Exhibitors!


“The dramatic progress of Asia’s travel and tourism markets, fuelled by the rising BRIC economies, testifies once again to the region’s immense potential for growth. Now, more so than ever, we need to encourage greater strategic collaboration among the leaders of the industry. Over the years, ITB Asia has been incredibly valuable in delivering comprehensive market insights and important networking opportunities. We are confident that STB’s partnership with Messe Berlin will continue to boost the success of ITB Asia and anchor TravelRave’s status as the region’s premier travel and tourism week for the trade”

Neeta Lachmandas | Assistant Chief Executive, Singapore Tourism Board

“ITB ASIA was a brilliant place for meetings – in one to one meetings we could convince potential customers how easy Helsinki is to reach even from South-East Asia. We managed to meet plentiful new contacts during ITB ASIA.”

“As a leader in Asia’s green meeting space, Marina Bay Sands will guide and support Messe Berlin at every step of its green journey. ITB Asia is an important platform to communicate and generate greater awareness about sustainability to key decision makers in the travel industry. Through our leadership efforts, we hope to further the conversations on sustainability and spur more companies and individuals to go green wherever possible,”

“ ITB Asia is the definitive and perfect business platform for us to leverage on the amazing growth opportunities within the Asian MICE and Leisure markets. Our experience in this year’s ITB Asia has been spot on with very good Buyer Pre-Scheduled Appointments as well as invaluable networking opportunities during the networking sessions and education sessions during the entire week. We certainly met new customers and also did great business on the show floor as well as in the many networking functions during ITB Asia. ITB Asia gave us great ROI and we look forward to another great edition in 2015.“

Since the format is of pre matched appointments, the meetings are more focused and constructive. This year we also saw a good participation of buyers from the European region’
