Let's Connect at ITB15 in Berlin

March is right around the corner, and for many of us engaged in the world of travel and tourism, it means that it’s time to start thinking about the annual global tourism industry gathering in Berlin, Germany: ITB Berlin.

We’ve participated in ITB for the past few years, and although it’s understandably a very hectic few days, we’ve enjoyed the opportunities to meet face-to-face with many of our industry colleagues from around the world.

Ours is a “people industry” driven and supported by individuals around the world passionate about discovering the world and sharing amazing places and experiences. And global gatherings like ITB is a great reminder of that.
