Katrina Leung, Managing Director of Messe Berlin (Singapore), the organiser of ITB Asia, said: “This year will be the most important ITB Asia show to date. After 1.5 years, the tourism industry is showing signs of recovery, with testing, safe 'travel bubbles' and vaccination campaigns increasingly normalising travel, but there is still a long way to go to reach pre-pandemic levels. 
"If the pandemic, which caused closed borders, travel restrictions and strict safety measures, has taught us one thing, it’s that our industry must remain flexible and keep re-inventing itself. At ITB Asia Virtual, the industry comes together to establish high-quality networks, conduct business, and share valuable knowledge.”
Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) and the Saudi Tourism Authority are premiering as Elite Partners of this year's ITB Asia 2021 Virtual show. A large number of visitors are expected to attend the webinars on October 26 (Saudi Tourism Board) and October 27 (BER) at 2 pm.
