LET° S GEO - Start-ups Battle: Digital Innovations for Tourist Destinations

Start-ups are developing innovative products and services for many industries - including tourism. Often, however, new ideas and potential users don't come together, or those responsible in tourist destinations don't have the time to provide an overview of their best ideas and offers.

ITB, the world's leading travel trade show, joined forces with the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Deutscher Industrie- und Handelskammertag, DIHK) to take a closer look at many outstanding start-ups and invite the best five to present their digital innovations for tourism in the "Start-ups Battle" at ITB Berlin on 11 March. Short presentations and questions from an expert jury will offer insights into new instruments tourism managers can use to promote their destinations.

Meet LET° S GEO at the Start-ups Battle: Friday, 11 March, 1:00 p.m. (CET) at ITB Berlin, Hall 7.1a, Hall New York 1
