Berlin, 10.03.2023 – After a three-year break due to Corona, the world’s leading tourism industry convention, the ITB, returned to Berlin. As in previous years, MyPostcard also participated as an exhibitor.
Themed “Open for Change”, Berlin invited visitors to the International Tourism Fair again this year from March 7 to 9 after a long break. As the world’s leading travel trade show, the ITB offers exhibitors from all over the world a unique platform to present their services, products and travel destinations during the three trade visitor days. This year, for the first time, the travel trade show was open to trade visitors only.
With a new location, MyPostcard this year had a stand in Hall 20. One-to-one exchanges with the company’s marketing and social departments and a selection of best-selling postcard motifs to take home – the stand of the postcard app invited visitors to linger, network and exchange cooperation opportunities. The highlight of the booth in “Miamivibe”, which was specially designed for the ITB, was the photo box, from which free postcards with one’s own photo could be sent. Finally, the overall impression even convinced the jury of the ITB Best Exhibitor Awards, so that MyPostcard’s booth was chosen among the 10 best exhibitor booths.
In addition to the numerous panel discussions, seminars and lectures, the Equality in Tourism Awards ceremony on International Women’s Day was one of the highlights of ITB 2023. The organizers summed up this year’s ITB 2023 as a great success with 90,127 trade visitors from over 180 countries.
