ITB Speed Networking

ITB Speed Networking

Let's start networking:

Since ITB Berlin 2015, top buyers meet exclusively with exhibitors during ITB Speed Networking in up to 9 pre-scheduled appointments. Exhibitors and buyers have 8 minute slots for a first business talk. Afterwards the exhibitors move forward to their next appointments. The buyers remain at their desks and wait for their next meeting partners.

Within their profile descriptions in the Matchmaking Tool, buyers and exhibitors can focus on certain products and services as well as countries and therefore are able to find relevant meeting partners who match their interests. ITB Buyers Circle members as well as ITB Berlin exhibitors will be invited to take part in the event by 31 January 2020.

Please note: Exhibitors must have at least one pre-scheduled appointment in order to participate in the event. ITB Buyers Circle members can take part in the event without having pre-scheduled appointments.

NEW: For the first time also qualified ITB Berlin trade visitors, who are attending ITB Berlin as buyers and have purchased their ITB Berlin trade visitor ticket until 31 January 2020, 12pm (CET), can participate in the event and in will automatically receive an invitation to take part.
The trade buyers will then be notified by 3 February 2020 by email and are then able to purchase a personalized ITB Speed Networking ticket for 99 Euro. Kindly note that the ITB Speed Networking ticket only grants access to the event and the Matchmaking Tool but cannot guarantee for any pre-scheduled appointments.

ITB Speed Networking Impressions


Peter Strub, Managing Director, STUDIOSUS REISEN

"I think that ITB Speed Networking is a good opportunity to gain a lot of new contacts in a short time. My calendar is quite full during ITB Berlin and I nearly have no time to meet new exhibitors besides my scheduled meetings. ITB Speed Networking enables me to win new contacts and get to know new products before the trade show even starts. I encourage other buyers to do the same and to register for the event."

"This kind of event is the best way to contact the buyers directly, congratulations!"
