An exclusive 90-minute ITB Speed Networking event will again be taking place on the morning of Thursday, 7 March 2019… for the fifth time. A pre- matchmaking system ensures buyers can target those exhibitors whose products interest them. Furthermore, members of the ITB Buyers Circle will be the first to receive invitations to all the important themed networking events.
National and international decision-makers from the business travel, MICE and leisure travel sectors, as well as start-ups, can take advantage of the free services offered by the ITB Buyers Circle. At the last ITB Berlin in March 2018 five out of ten members had at least five million euros at their disposal, six out of ten were from companies with more than 100 employees, seven out of ten had previously visited ITB Berlin at least four times, and eight out of ten operated in Europe.
The senior buyers of the ITB Buyers Circle benefit from numerous services which save time and significantly improve efficiency as well as ensuring a pleasant stay at the show. The ITB Buyers Circle Lounge at the Marshall Haus offers a tranquil atmosphere, where fully equipped work-places, Wi-Fi, refreshments and a quiet area are available to the select members. Buyers can make use of the Open Networking Area in the gallery and one of six separate meeting rooms, which can be booked in advance, for in-depth meetings with exhibitors away from the bustle of the fair. Other advantages of the ITB Buyers Circle include free admission, including to the ITB Berlin Convention, early access via a fast lane to the exhibition grounds from 8.30 am, and various shuttle services.
