GTM 2020 goes virtual

The German National Tourist Board

(GNTB) is taking the Germany Travel Mart (GTM) virtual this year 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, have decided to move the physical GTM to 2021.

Petra Hedorfer, Chairwoman of the GNTB Executive Board, explains: “In order 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 elaborates: “We are already looking forward to welcome 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.”
