ITB has been cancelled but the show must go on. Fvw is publishing digital ITB Dailies this week to support the international travel and tourism industry. The three Dailies contain a mix of current news, background articles and interviews with top executives and managers conducted by phone or mail instead of physically at the trade fair. Following Messe Berlin’s cancellation of ITB Berlin 2020, fvw decided to go ahead with production and publication of its official ‘ITB Daily’ as scheduled on March 4, 5 and 6.
