Team IPD finally got to go to an actual travel trade event. Gosh, it’s been a while but so much better than Zoom. Tourism is a people business. B2B networking and matchmaking for our partner companies from Tunisia, Ecuador, Nepal and Uzbekistan was the focus for the tourism experts and we did our best to meet as many specialist tour operators from Europe as we could on our stand in London. Our partner companies did not travel with us this time due to red lists etc. but did attend during the virtual event. Plenty of new contacts made all in all, now we all just need the world to get a proper grip on the pandemic. Next stop ITB Berlin 2022 with partner companies exhibiting!
For an overview of the IPD companies and how we work with tour operators in Europe please check our website. Check the country factsheets, they are new and very useful for product managers from Europe that are working on new destinations and tours.
