The German National Tourist Board is going virtual with the biggest incoming workshop for Destination Germany from June 22 to June 24.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the GNTB in close cooperation with the tourism association of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as the hosting state has decided to move the physical Germany Travel Mart (GTM) to 2021.

Petra Hedorfer, Chairwoman of the GNTB Executive Board, explains: “To foster and further enhance the key contacts of our partners of Germany tourism with international buyers and multipliers, we are going to offer the GTM in the form of a digital event this year. With this, we are building a bridge for the recovery programs for 2020/2021 and the next physical GTM.”

Tobias Woitendorf, director of the TMV, further elaborated: “We are already looking forward to welcoming the key accounts of the international travel industry to the physical GTM from April 25 to April 27, 2021, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The preparations for 2021 have already begun. We will use the virtual GTM 2020 to present our federal state with a webinar on the destination.”

Along with live meetings between suppliers and hosted buyers within the established networking tool, the GNTB integrates further digital communication possibilities, such as webinars and on-demand content.

The participation in the Virtual GTM 2020 costs 79 EUR for German suppliers. Prospective suppliers can now register online. Suppliers that have been listed on the GTM distribution list will be contacted automatically.
