ITB Asia has extended its agreement with Marina Bay Sands for another three years.
This means that the Asian travel trade show will continue to be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore until 2019.
“This extension demonstrates our ongoing commitment to take ITB Asia to the next level,” said Katrina Leung, executive director of Messe Berlin (Singapore), the organisers of ITB Asia. “Marina Bay Sands is renowned for creating extraordinary experiences by providing superior service, amenities and state-of-the-art conference facilities and we have forged an excellent working relationship over the past few years.
“We will continue to harness the expertise and synergies to create an optimal business environment for our delegates and lift the overall offering of our show to exhibitors, buyers and attendees,” she added.
The eighth edition of ITB Asia came to a close on Friday, having welcomed 760 exhibitors, almost 880 buyers and more than 10,300 attendees over the three days. Organisers expect to expand the show in 2016.
“It has been our privilege to work with the organisers of ITB Asia over the past few years. The synergy, mutual understanding and rapport we enjoy has built a strong foundation for the travel trade show, and contributed to successful editions, year after year. We are humbled and encouraged by their strong support and look forward to scaling new heights together in the next three years,” said George Tanasijevich, president & CEO of Marina Bay Sands.
The next four editions of ITB Asia will take place from 19-21 October 2016, 25-27 October 2017, 17-19 October 2018 and 16-18 October 2019.
