Audience & Statistics

We’ve already claimed that ITB Berlin is a juggernaut of an event and a world leader, but what does that look like in terms of numbers. For starters, you’ll be competing with 10,000 exhibitors for the attention of the audience, but then again the exhibition halls will fill with more than 160,000 visitors in total from over 180 countries. Although the doors are open to both industry insider and the general public, only roughly 50,000 account for end consumers. That’s also not mentioning the ITB Buyers Circle, which has brought 1000 qualified buyers at the top of their industry. These numbers along should excite you about the opportunity to exhibit at ITB Berlin. The professional audience consists of tour operators, hotel enterprises, traffic carriers, tourist organisations, travel agencies and advertising agencies.
