Panellists will share their differing perspectives and expectations for the near future regarding tourism, consumer rights, business development and other relevant areas. What arises from the discussion will be especially interesting given that – right now – we all do not know in detail the concrete impact that March 29 will have on tourism industry, travel tech companies and consumers. Hopefully the result will be some valuable insights that tourism companies in attendance can use to prepare for the various scenarios that might happen.
The Panel will take place on Friday, March 8, 2.30-3.30 pm in the eTravel Lab (hall 7.1b).
ITB Berlin 2019 will take place at Messe Berlin from March 6th – 10th.
