More than 2,600 travel and tourism industry managers and professionals took part in this year’s highly successful fvw Kongress in Cologne, featuring a two-day conference, a travel trade fair and accompanying events.
The fvw Kongress in Cologne is thus significantly larger than the annual DRV conference and is regularly attended by top decision-makers in the German travel and tourism industry. In addition to the conference and the trade fair, the traditional Deutsche Bahn party on the first evening is a well-established networking event for all participants.
Highlights this year included presentations and panel discussions including senior managers from tour operators including TUI, Thomas Cook and Rewe, airlines, cruise operators, hotels, travel agency chains and diverse travel suppliers. Fvw.com will report this week and next on the main news from the event.
In 2013, the fvw Kongress and Travel Expo will take place on September 24 and 25 in the same location in the Staatenhaus am Rheinpark in Cologne.
