The inaugural ITB India 2021 will be held as an entirely virtual event, set to take place from 7 - 9 April 2021, due to the ongoing travel restrictions and the circumstances around the pandemic. Only in August organiser Messe Berlin changed the planned live show to a hybrid event.
"We had high hopes that we could combine a live and a virtual event for the very first ITB India next April“, said Katrina Leung,Managing Director of Messe Berlin (Singapore). But unfortunately, the travel restrictions in place, and the economic uncertainty resulting from the worldwide pandemic have become too unpredictable to proceed with the show as a hybrid event as originally planned.
The virtual show welcomes over 400 Indian and Southeast Asian buyers from MICE, Corporate and Leisure sectors. ITB India 2021 Virtual will be hosted on ITB Community in Asia (ITB Community), which is a platform for trade professionals to forge connections, strike conversations with industry peers and do business all-year-round.
