ITB_Berlin_Convention_with_claimiambassador will once again be present in a big way at ITB Berlin. The 50th edition of this premier tourism convention promises to be a vibrant event with plenty of networking and learning opportunities for all delegates. For the second year running, iambassador and Traveldudes will have its own stand at the eTravel World in Hall 6.1 (stand 149). The stand is intended to be a space for travel bloggers and marketing/PR executives to meet, or to relax and have a cup of coffee. We are thrilled to have Emilia Romagna Tourism and Puglia Tourism as the supporters of our stand this year! In addition, we will also host the 5th ITB Travel Tweet-up on Wednesday, 9th March. Scroll down for more details.

Blogville Network

In addition to being a networking spot, the stand will be utilised to launch the Blogville Network, an exciting new project to nurture cross-border collaborations among tourism boards. With the Blogville Network, iambassador takes its relationship with Emilia Romagna Tourism to the next level after working together on the successful BlogVille campaign (this year marks the 5th edition). This relationship has created new models for collaborations between digital influencers and DMOs, for instance, co-branded content such as eBooks and informational websites (such as the new MotorValley website). The Blogville Network aims to work on new concepts and tourism products at a cross-border level by encouraging ‘co-opetition‘ rather than ‘competition’ among tourism destinations. DMOs are invited to drop by the stand for more information about the Blogville Network.

Other activities at the stand

Puglia Tourism will provide delicious snacks and wines at the stand every day, and on Friday, 11th March, the Nordic Bloggers Experience will host a drinks reception at the stand at 4pm. Please register here.
