This included Abu Dhabi, Botswana, Canton Sarajevo, Croatia, Fukuoka, Kansai, Mauritius, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Poland, Rovaniemi, Slovakia and Ukraine among many others.

“Having surpassed last year’s impressive milestone, we have yet again achieved record-breaking numbers as we continue to see the show flourish.

“As we look forward to next year’s ITB Asia, we continue to build and strengthen our efforts in maintaining ITB Asia as the premier event of the year and the go-to hub for remarkable travel content and inspiring experiences.

“My greatest thanks and appreciation go out to all our supporters across the industry and the teams involved for their endless hard work in making this event happen,” said Katrina Leung, managing director of Messe Berlin (Singapore), the organiser of ITB Asia.
