ITB India 2020 Will Be Postponed

The ITB India organisers have announced to postpone ITB India 2020, originally scheduled to be held on 15 – 17 April at Bombay Exhibition Centre. ITB India 2021 will be held on 7 – 9 April at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. 

Due to the rapid spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19), there is much uncertainty in the region and around the world. The recent developments continue to be challenging and the following months are very hard to foresee at this stage.

To ensure the safety of ITB India’s exhibitors, buyers and visitors, the organisers decided to postpone ITB India 2020, and in a responsible way allow all participants to make necessary arrangements in a timely manner.
 
The ITB India organisers will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide further updates based on official assessments of the overall risk situation.

In its first year it will be organized by the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce and supported by Messe Berlin (Singapore) Pte Ltd. The 3-day business-to-business travel trade show and convention will focus on the Indian travel market including MICE, corporate, and leisure travel sectors. Exhibitors from every sector of the industry, including travel agencies and operators, NTOs, business travel and MICE, travel technology, accommodation, and transport companies are all expected to attend.

ITB Berlin 2020 is cancelled due to the rapid spread of Covid-19 the first-ever in 54 years. The organisers of the fair, scheduled to start on March 4 for four days, originally expected about 160,000 visitors. Just a few days before the cancellation, the venue Messe Berlin and the organisers of the ITB had expressed their confidence that the fair would take place as planned.
