EDITORIAL

Richard Barnes

Editor-in-Chief,

ITB Berlin News

Nothing will be the same again...

ever... and thank goodness

If anything has been learnt from ITB

Berlin NOW this year, it is that while

on the one hand, a virtual event can

be a rip-roaring success, on the other,

people’s longing for face-to-face

meetings is not waning.

Of course, we have probably all learned that

digitalisation has experienced a huge surge.

The pandemic has indeed been the much

talked-about catalyst.

At the same time, as trade show organisers,

Messe Berlin have taken a huge leap

forward. And while many people were initially

enthusiastic about Zoom and co., most now

realise that one cannot simply replace faceto-face

meetings online.

Thus, according to Dr Martin Buck - SVP,

Travel & Logistics, Messe Berlin, “the post-

ITB Berlin NOW 2021 buzzword is ‘hybrid’

and that is where we believe the future lies

– by cleverly combining virtual and in-person

formats.”

Dr Buck says this applies to the workplace

too, combining home-working with the office,

as it does to business trips, with online and

actual meetings.

So, no, there will be no going back to the

“old normal” next year, or at any other time in

the future. The future will be hybrid and the

future will be different. And hopefully it will

bring with it the better part of the changes

many of us constantly wish for in the world of

travel and tourism, when it comes to setting

a new course for planet earth, to truly make

it a better place for all those who sail on her.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Maldives, a perfect

geography for safe

holidays

The scattered nature

of the Maldivian

archipelago proves to

be an asset for tourists

in search of health

safety

VISIT

BR AND CARD

With palm fringed islands scattered across the Indian

Ocean, the Maldives is naturally blessed in current

pandemic times with a geography that lends itself to

social distancing. The one-island-one-resort concept,

where each island has only one hotel establishment,

providing plenty of space and privacy for the tourists,

has proven very popular. In 2020, the country managed

to attract 553,000 international visitors, down 67.5%

over 2019.

Since the beginning of the

pandemic, the Maldives

has prioritised the health,

safety and well-being of

the population. Stringent

guidelines for health and

safety were prepared from the

very beginning for every step

- from constantly monitoring

the evolving crisis to each and

every phase of the visitor’s

journey. These efforts were

recognised by the World Travel

and Tourism Council (WTTC)

in September 2020, resulting

in the destination achieving

the "Safe Travels Stamp" to

ensure travellers’ confidence.

In 2020, the Maldives

received the World’s Leading

Destination award at the

Grand Final of the World

Travel Awards 2020, making it

an historic win in this category

for the first time. Maldives

also won four more awards in

the Indian Ocean category at

World Travel Awards. These

were "Indian Ocean’s Leading

Beach Destination 2020",

"Indian Ocean’s Leading

Cruise Destination 2020",

"Indian Ocean’s Leading

Destination 2020" and

"Indian Ocean’s Leading Dive

Destination 2020". Last but

not least, the Indian Ocean’s

Leading Destination Award

was attributed 13 times in the

last 16 years to the Maldives.

Several new initiatives are

strengthening the future of

tourism. Maldives Immigration,

together with the Ministry of

Tourism, Visit Maldives and

Maldives Airports Company

launched the “Maldives Border

Miles”. The three-tier loyalty

programme will give points to

tourists based on factors such

as the duration of stay and

frequency of visits. In addition,

Allied Insurance Company,

together with the Ministry

of Tourism, has launched a

Covid-19 insurance policy,

focusing on tourists visiting

Maldives. Tourists who are

interested in this insurance

should apply for the plan 24

hours prior to their arrival in

the country.

The Maldives launched

a vaccination campaign

throughout the entire country

on 1st February 2021. The

programme aims to vaccinate

as much of the population

and workers in key industries

as possible, including the

vaccination of workers in

the tourism sector. This will

assure tourists and staff that

the environment in which they

are working is safe, secure and

protected. The ultimate target

is to make Maldives the first

fully vaccinated tourism sector

in the world

The ITB Berlin NOW Keynote

interview "from mass to

meaningful travel" on Wednesday

March 10, looked at new models

adapted to a pandemic context.

Airbnb's adaptation to current

market conditions proves the

resilience of the industry in

uncertain times.

For Nathan Blecharczyk, Co-Founder

and Chief Strategy Officer of Airbnb

and Chairman of Airbnb China, the

adaptation of the Airbnb model to new

health and social distancing conditions

has helped the accommodation sharing

company to cushion the impact of the

pandemic. "We were expecting a drop

of 50% in total revenues for the year

2020. We finally experienced a drop of

"only" 30% at US$3.4bn. The lockdown

was followed by a desire to visit places

nearby accessible by car. The millions of

hosts' offers helped to attract travellers

to smaller communities," he explained

at the ITB Berlin NOW Convention.

Furthermore, Airbnb appeared as an

easy solution for travellers who wanted

to work remotely from another home,

or take extended trips with family and

friends.

Bleisure is likely to turn into an important

segment of Airbnb development in the

near future. "The concept of bleisure

will be on the rise as more people work

from home or go to the office only three

times a week. This leaves an open door

to extended week-ends where people

can enjoy both a vacation and work

remotely," said Blecharczyk.

Airbnb is also adapting to community

requirements or local government

rules. "We aim to find solutions to

engage Airbnb hosts, guests and local

communities. We adapt permanently,"

said the CSO. "Airbnb of today is

certainly not the company of tomorrow,"

he concluded

VISIT

BR AND CARD

In another ITB Berlin NOW CEO interview, Eurowings

GmbH CEO Jens Bischof, stated that the pandemic

has been taken as a time to rethink the model of

development for the point-to-point air carrier.

"Our new Eurowings strategy is

to focus stronger on customer

services. Major changes

are currently observed

in travellers' behaviour.

Guests do not look only for

a 5€ ticket to fly and cheap

accommodation. They want to

feel at ease with a partner they

can trust in health safety and

care," he explained during ITB

Berlin NOW.

The airline is responding to

customers health concerns

with a further improved service

on board. Passengers can now

reserve a free middle seat on

all Eurowings flights from as

little as 10 euros and book it

online on the airline's website

in just a few clicks. "We want

be the leading point-to-point

carrier in terms of services,"

added Bischof.

Another major development

is the creation of a new hub

in Berlin, showing Eurowings'

confidence in its local market.

Three aircraft will be stationed

in Berlin from April. They

will serve, up to three times

a day, Cologne, Düsseldorf

and Stuttgart, as well as

holiday destinations over the

summer

Tourism for

sustainable

development

under spotlight

@ ITB Berlin

NOW

The promotion of sustainable

development through tourism has

not only been in focus since the

outbreak of the Corona pandemic,

but it is more urgent than ever due to

its huge impact on the industry.

To this end, the German Federal Ministry for

Economic Cooperation and Development

(BMZ) was present at ITB Berlin NOW

promoting its comprehensive programme

which paves the way for partner countries

through the COVID-19 crisis towards a more

resilient and sustainable tourism landscape.

"Sustainable Ways Out of a Challenging

Crisis: Approaches and Measures in

Cooperation with International and Local

Partners" saw 14 key players on the stage.

Post-Covid Youth travel

The youth travel market targeting 15

to 30-year-olds has plummeted by

around 70% since the second quarter

of 2020 and is unlikely to recover

fully before 2023, said Professor

Greg Richards of the WYSE Travel

Confederation at the ITB Berlin NOW

Convention.

As far as a recovery was concerned, youth

travel offered prospects that set it apart

from other markets, Richards said. Young

travellers often go on longer trips than other

Norbert Barthle

Cooperation and Development

Norbert Barthle, Parliamentary State

Secretary to the Federal Minister for

Economic Cooperation and Development

(BMZ), explained that the measures

announced by the Ministry are designed for

16 countries that are particularly affected by

the Corona crisis and represent important

destinations for the German travel market.

The implementation will start in spring 2021

together with strong international partner

organisations as well as local cooperation

partners. The holistic approach aims at

making tourism emerge stronger

from the crisis and contribute

to sustainable development

with the broadest possible

impact

holidaymakers, for instance. The average

time spent travelling as an au pair or on

language studies was over 100 days. For that

reason, young travellers were more likely to

take quarantine in their stride. The youth

travel market has changed substantially

in recent years. “Backpackers are already

history, even though for many years, they

essentially made up the youth travel market.

However, the market’s traditional image has

changed. Backpackers have grown older,

gone up-market and become flashpackers

and digital nomads”, he said.

One obstacle to a recovery of the youth

travel market could be that in many

countries students and young adults will

be among the last population groups to

be vaccinated. However, this could be an

incentive for destinations to attract students

by advertising vaccinations on entry to their

country. An important factor influencing

the youth travel market’s future was visa

policies. One would have to wait and see

what steps the Biden administration would

take in the future, Richards said

Suzann Heinemann, Director of the

InfraCert Institute, emphasised that

the pandemic had mostly shown “how

had been a topic among consumers

even before Covid-19, but the crisis had

made people more aware now. Hoteliers

who previously had not considered

sustainability a priority had worked on

Global travel trends:

ITB Berlin & IPK International

After dramatic slump, high chances for a fast

recovery of tourism industry

ITB Berlin has published the latest

World Travel Monitor findings of IPK

International on global travel trends in

the year of the pandemic and on travel

intentions in 2021.

Following strong growth rates over the past

10 years, the tourism industry, a flagship of the

economy, has experienced a dramatic slump

and is one of the worst-hit sectors in the year of

the pandemic. Globally, outbound travel

in 2020 declined by 70%. The losses

varied depending on continent and

travel segment. Thus, nature-oriented

holiday types and trips by car performed

significantly better during the pandemic

than air travel or city breaks and round

trips. Despite the drastic global decline

in 2020, the latest survey results give

hope for the upcoming year: two-thirds of

outbound travellers worldwide intend to

travel abroad again in 2021.

CORONAVIRUS LED TO

CHANGES IN TRAVEL

BEHAVIOUR

The segments worst-hit by the global

decline in outbound travel are holiday trips

(minus 71%). By comparison, business

travel (minus 67%) and other private trips

(minus 62%) have not been impacted as

badly. In the holiday travel market, round

trips and city breaks have suffered above

average losses (minus 75%), while beach

holidays and nature oriented holidays

(minus 53%) have weathered the crisis

much better.

As expected, air travel has been

particularly hard-hit by the pandemic,

where in outbound travel the decline is

minus 74% worldwide. By comparison,

international travel by car (minus 58%)

has fared much better. In accommodation,

declines are above average in the

hotel industry (minus 73%), while other

accommodation types - including private

lodgings - have suffered less badly.

HIGH INTEREST IN OUTBOUND

TRAVEL IN 2021

The results of IPK’s global survey from January

of this year give reason for hope, indeed starting

with travel in 2021: 62% of international travellers

worldwide intend to travel abroad this year.

Those not aiming to travel abroad do not indicate

financial reasons for this, but with a large majority

the infection risk. A combination of vaccines now

being available and a high willingness among

outbound travellers (90%) to be vaccinated

has nullified the main reason for not traveling,

meaning that nothing stands in the way of a rapid

and widespread recovery of the tourism industry.

TRAVEL AND HOLIDAY PLANS

FOR 2021

When asked about outbound travel plans this year,

respondents focus on holiday travel. Compared

with pre-pandemic travel, there is above-average

interest in visiting friends and family. Interest in

business travel is higher among Americans and

Asians than among Europeans. In terms

of holiday trips abroad in 2021, there is

a high level of interest in sun & beach

holidays. City breaks rank second among

holiday types (first among Asians) and

ABROAD THIS YEAR

nature-oriented holidays comes third, a

considerable rise in popularity compared

to before the pandemic. The latest surveys

also reflect continuing high interest in air

travel abroad and a recovery of the hotel

industry appears likely.

GREAT OPPORTUNITIES

FOR A RAPID RECOVERY

The chances for a rapid global recovery

of the international tourism industry are

very good. Worldwide, there is a strong

desire to travel, as evidenced by the travel

intentions for 2021. With vaccines now

increasingly available, the main reason

for not wanting to travel is being nullified.

Assuming high percentages of the

population are vaccinated quickly around

the world, this will contribute to a rapid

and comprehensive recovery of global

demand for outbound travel. This goal

could be reached in 2022, at latest 2023

Incoming Department,

Nika Tour and Travel

From the

Middle East to

the world

Mohamad Navabi is a travel Consultant and Marketing

agent at Nika Tour and Travel agency, based in Teheran,

Iran, present at ITB Berlin NOW in the Buyers’ Circle.

We asked him what his outlook is for the coming year.

I think tourism will gradually

restart again. People will get

vaccinated sooner or later and

a large percentage of them

are waiting to be able to travel

again. When that time comes,

we could well face a large

volume of travellers. The trend

is towards different kinds of

travel, like remote, distant

places, far from the cities.

Preparing for the coming

year is a must, so we need

to advertise ourselves to the

world, in order that when the

time will come, we benefit from

our efforts.

What would you say is the

most important lesson that

has been learnt (or should be

learnt) from the Covid crisis?

All those in the tourism industry

need to find and define new

ways of travelling, promoting

new routes and close-to-home

tours, as well as exploring

secondary destinations.

People need to travel, to have

a human connection and to be

with family and friends. In my

opinion, we should invest in

I EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW I

The success

story explained

David Ruetz, head of ITB Berlin NOW,

looks back at the 2021 edition of the

show

The highest expectations of the

organisers have been fulfilled,

with excellent results for all

aspects of ITB Berlin NOW

2021. We asked David Ruetz to

tell us more.

During the five-day event, 65,716

users visited the online platform, of

whom around two-thirds (64.5%)

came from abroad. As far as our

exhibitors go, there were 3,513

companies and organisations from

around 120 countries, plus 1,050

media representatives and bloggers

who covered ITB Berlin NOW. The

ITB Berlin NOW events were also

very well received with a total of

265 hours of event programme and

around 52,600 participants. Some 700

speakers took part in more than 400

discussion rounds at the convention,

held lectures, interviews and exhibitor

presentations and press conferences.

What has the feedback been like?

The feedback from users is extremely

positive. After a year of bad news,

around the world, the industry

expressed a heartfelt desire to get

together again at a show. The response

was excellent from both exhibitors

and users. They made good use of our

digital smart-matching tools to find and

maintain contacts. These included the

Discovery Graph, a tool for suggesting

potentially relevant contacts, and our

Lead Finder, which brings buyers

and sellers together with products of

common interest. However, ITB Berlin

NOW is not over yet: Until 31 May 2021

the content and many other functions

remain online, so participants can find

important information and contacts,

network with each other, evaluate

their results and access programme

items. For those who could not take

part during the live event phase, there

is the possibility to purchase an afterevent

ticket for 29 euros.

UNTIL 31 MAY 2021

THE CONTENT AND

MANY OTHER

FUNCTIONS REMAIN

ONLINE

Tell us a little bit about the build-up

to this event and the work that was

required.

The workload for the digital trade

show was actually “the same but also

different” compared to an in-person

event. As a team, we naturally faced

completely new challenges organising

a virtual show for the first time,

especially during a pandemic when

most of our team had to work from

home. We missed the direct, personal

exchange before the event, which

would have made communication

often faster or easier. Logistics included

two streaming video studios, a Corona

Test Centre in the CityCube, and more

than 300 employees - from cleaning

and security to the Corona Test Team

from the German Red Cross and the

technical crew to the trade show

management. They all contributed to

the success of ITB Berlin NOW. One

thing that was really helpful was that

having organised the smaller We Love

Travel! event together with the Berlin

Travel Festival last autumn, we had

already completed a sort of test run

several months earlier. Thus, the live

studio set-up in Berlin was not new to

us – nor were the broadcasts. The test

run was therefore invaluable for our

team and for working together with

the technical service provider.

What can we expect next year?

Ultimately, the team at ITB Berlin

would like to welcome visitors in

large numbers again on the exhibition

grounds. In conversations over the

last few days, what I clearly heard was

that the industry is deeply longing to

meet and talk again in person. I am

therefore looking forward all the more

to a live event in Berlin in 2022 that

will combine the best elements of an

in-person and virtual show

I EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW I

Face-to-face with Dr Martin

Buck - SVP, Travel & Logistics,

Messe Berlin

With its launch of ITB.com in March 2020,

ITB underlined its role as the World’s

Leading Travel Trade Show and created a

comprehensive virtual platform. We asked

Dr Martin Buck - SVP, Travel & Logistics,

Messe Berlin to further explain the concept.

The aim was to ensure the industry could access a

permanent information forum and constant supply

of industry news and to give users the opportunity

to network with each other, regardless of their

location, 365 days a year and despite the show’s

cancellation last year. It is also a central platform and

meeting place for all editions of the entire ITB family.

Interested parties can find everything they need to

know there about ITB Berlin, ITB India, ITB China

and ITB Asia and can get information on formats

being planned as well as key topics, details of user

and exhibitor numbers and the various convention

themes.

Coming up very soon, we have the ITB India show

- in virtual form. Can you tell us more about this?

The first ITB India will take place from 7 to 9 April 2021

as a virtual event. The trade show will feature more

than 80 leading speakers as well as 200 international

exhibitors and 400 buyers from India and South-

East Asia. Segments include Leisure, Corporate

and MICE. Among the exhibitors will be tourism

organisations such as the German National Tourism

Board, the Israeli Ministry of Tourism, the Korean

Tourism Organization, the Sarawak Tourism Board,

Visit Portugal and many more. Taking as its slogan

“Rebuilding Travel“, the parallel ITB India Conference

will focus on the tourism industry’s recovery.

A little further out, ITB China and ITB Asia may be a

little different. What are the plans for these shows

as they stand today?

Following a successful number of industry meet-ups

in several Chinese cities last year, we are looking

forward to the next regular edition of ITB China (24

-16 Nov) this autumn. In October we are looking

forward among other things to the next edition of

ITB Asia in Singapore, set to take place from 27-29

October. This is scheduled as a hybrid event, and

will therefore offer fascinating content and business

meetings for virtual and in-person visitors.

What feedback have you had for ITB Berlin NOW?

What made you particularly proud of this show?

The feedback from both exhibitors and participants

has been very good. I heard from all sides that industry

colleagues had been longing to come together on a

central travel industry platform. Now and again I

Dr Martin Buck

SVP, Travel & Logistics,

Messe Berlin GmbH

had heard talk of a family or school reunion. There

is quite a bit of truth in that. We are all social beings.

Even if we were unable to gather in person this year,

a virtual meeting was still miles better than nothing

at all. The fact that so many users felt the same was

EVEN IF WE WERE UNABLE TO

GATHER IN PERSON THIS YEAR, A

VIRTUAL MEETING WAS STILL MILES

BETTER THAN NOTHING AT ALL

quite touching. At the same time, of course, we also

heard many attendees saying quite clearly that a

digital ITB can never replace the "real" one in Berlin.

And if we're honest, that's exactly where we all want

to be again: Hosting the world at the fair grounds of

Messe Berlin in 2022!

I EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW I

Sweden has just been named as "Number 1 Sustainable Destination in the world" by

Euromonitor International. We asked Visit Sweden’s Interim CEO Susanne Andersson

why she feels this honour was given to her country.

To be recognised in this way is a huge

encouragement and is mainly thanks to the

engagement, commitment and passion of

entrepreneurs throughout Sweden.

In Sweden, we have a long and strong tradition of

living close to nature, which naturally gives us a

sustainable perspective and understanding, both

individually and for businesses. 97% of Sweden is

unpopulated, so social distancing comes easily.

This may be the reason why Swedish hotels, tour

and travel operators and transport companies

today are offering a broad range of sustainable

solutions, such as biofuel run and carbon dioxide

compensated transport and eco-friendly hotels.

To name a few examples.

Gothenburg has been named as a European

capital of smart tourism. Tell us a little bit about

Gothenburg and why it is a model in this sense.

As one of Europe’s leading foodie destinations,

Gothenburg the second largest city of Sweden,

is a vibrant gateway to our country for many

visitors. It is the perfect ‘escape’ destination

where culture, shopping and local cuisine will

keep you busy. Still it’s a fantastic example of

an easily accessible European city close to

nature, striving to become even more digitally

accessible, inclusive and sustainable.

Gothenburg added this award to other accolades,

being named the world’s Best Sustainable

City Stay for 2021 by Lonely Planet, and it has

held the top ranking in the Global Destinations

Sustainability Index since 2016. With a regional

climate target of being fossil-fuel independent by

2030, Gothenburg was the first city in the world

to issue Green Bonds to accelerate investment in

climate-oriented solutions.

The tourism industry needs to develop even

more sustainable ways to take advantage of the

growing tourism sector. This is an opportunity

to go from smart to smarter and is especially

important after the tough times experienced

during 2020 with less tourism and fewer business

opportunities.

What else has Sweden been "pushing" this year

at ITB Berlin NOW?

A study revealed some time ago that just 72 hours

in Sweden’s nature reduces stress and increases

individual wellbeing. This made us collect a

sample of just a few of the incredible locations

and accommodation experiences available that

are well placed to make the most of Sweden’s

freedom to roam, a principle, protected in law,

that gives all people easy access to the nature.

Sweden’s unique nature can be experienced

from award-winning glamping sites, architectdesigned

tree houses, and even luxurious rooms

The freedom to roam also opens up Sweden’s

natural gourmet pantry of wild food. It’s

something we´re celebrating through our Edible

Country project, 40 million hectares of fine do-ityourself

dining.

In Sweden, naturally healthy food can be found

just around the corner – in our forests, lakes

and meadows. In collaboration with Michelinstarred

chefs, we have created inspirational

menus featuring local produce to experience the

Swedish pantry.

ITB BERLIN NOW 2021

HAS BEEN A GREAT CHANCE

FOR US ALL TO KEEP IN

TOUCH WITH TRAVEL

AGENTS, JOURNALISTS AND

INFLUENCERS.

What are your thoughts on this year's "virtual"

ITB event?

ITB Berlin NOW 2021 has been a great chance

for us all to keep in touch with travel agents,

journalists and influencers. We have noticed that

we are digitally reaching new target groups even

if can’t replace the “real” ITB in Berlin and all the

face-to-face personal meetings we enjoy. Even if

we need to get used to this new form of “digital”

fairs, where we all develop our

digital skills, we all long for times

when we all can meet again in

Elite travel trends

Luxury hospitality sector grows in importance

The luxury travel industry

has emerged as one of the

fastest growing sectors to

contribute significantly to

global economic growth

and development. Growth

in disposable income and

increase in upper middle

class expenditure has

raised the demand for

higher service standards.

To whit, the concept of just

what constitutes "luxury" -

especially in the hotel field - is

evolving rapidly. Connoisseur

Circle has selected a few

prime examples...

ZANNIER HOTELS:

IN SEARCH OF

TIMELESSNESS

Within the last decade, visionary

Arnaud Zannier—heir to a shoe and

textile empire as well as a passionate

host—created a unique hotel group

whose latest addition, the Bãi San

Hô, opened in Vietnam in December

2020. For the first time in the history

of Zannier Hotels, guests can not

only select among 71 villas (46 of

which have a private pool), but they

can also choose one of the 45 private

residences as their own and stay

for good. Zannier’s vision of luxury

comes through in every detail: quiet

rather than loud, authentic rather

than ostentatious, and appreciative

of the environment in which his

properties are located. “I think I’m

a visionary in search of simplicity

and timelessness,” said Mr. Zannier

to one of Connoisseur Circle’s

reporters. www.zannierhotels.com

#NEWLUXURY

À LA BILL BENSLEY

“Luxury is dead,” asserts Bill Bensley,

an internationally successful hotel

designer and jack of all trades.

For him, “luxury” stands for more

than a traditional notion based on

wealth and fashion trends. Bensley

is pretty firm in his new definition

of luxury: in his development of

environmentally sustainable luxury

resorts, in particular, he always

focuses on protecting communities

and the environment. A case in point

is one of his masterpieces, the highend,

not-for-profit glamping resort

“Shinta Mani Wild” in Cambodia.

The sole purpose of this resort is

to preserve Cambodia’s Cardamom

National Park, the last rainforest

in Southeast Asia. Bensley's latest

project has a similar mission: the

proceeds of his newly discovered

passion for painting will also benefit

the Shinta Mani Foundation and the

associated Wildlife Alliance, whose

rangers protect the 865-hectare

forest and fauna of the Bensley

Collection—Shinta Mani Wild. This

special project is very close to Bill

Bensley’s heart, especially in these

pandemic times.

THE AETHOS FAMILY

IS GROWING

Wellness, relaxation and authentic

discoveries—these are the principles

of the recently launched European

hotel group Aethos. In 2020, the group

opened Aethos Saragano in Umbria,

Italy, and it has now expanded its

portfolio to include a 17th-century

palazzo, Aethos Corsica, scheduled

to open in April 2021. The group is

also planning to open two more

properties in Italy and Portugal.
