The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is saddened to hear that ITB Berlin (Internationale Tourismus-Börse Berlin) has been cancelled.
WTTC supports the decision of the organisers to heed advice from German authorities and cancel the global trade show, following the outbreak of COVID-19.
At present, the WTTC Global Summit in Cancun is set to go ahead as planned and we look forward to welcoming Travel & Tourism leaders from around the world to Mexico on 21-23 April.
It is important that the whole travel community comes together to work through this difficult time for our industry and support a proportionate response to the outbreak.
WTTC strongly encourages close public and private sector collaboration to help limit the impact of the virus, combat misinformation around its spread and avoid unnecessary panic.
