Youth Travel at ITB Berlin

Once again, Hall 4.1 is the place to head for Youth Travel & Economy Accommodation. This year there is a focus on digitalisation and youth travel certi cation, which the Rockin’ All over the World Festival will be open on the public days. Visitors to Hall 4.1 will get comprehensive information on youth travel, with tourism associations, organisations and tour operators presenting their services and latest products.

The displays are next door to the Adventure Travel and Responsible Tourism segment where hotels for backpackers, budget hotels and designer hotels as well as youth hostels, internet websites and associations will be presenting their services for young people. From Wednesday, March 7 to Friday, March 9, a wide range of events on youth travel awaits visitors to the stage and the Youth Incoming Germany (YIG) Lounge.

On Thursday, March 8, from 12pm to 3.30pm, under the heading of Youth Travel Destinations, visitors can find out how regions can obtain certification from the travel network Deutscher Fachverband für Jugendreisen.

The Arberland and Schliersee regions, the first two destinations to have received certi cation, will relate their experiences and success. The travel network will also have wide-ranging information on procedures as well as benefits and marketing opportunities for interested destinations.
