The fourth ITB Business Travel Days will be taking place from 5 to 9 March 2008 and will target travel managers in executive positions, office managers, suppliers and junior members of the industry. The programme agenda includes panel discussions, workshops dealing with practical aspects at the workplace, organised by the VDR Academy, the Institute for Business Travel. A specialist conference for business travel and mobility management by this member organisation of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce will also be taking place for the first time. Executives responsible for business travel, events and mobility management will be debating issues of online booking, efficient event organisation, travel safety and vehicle pool management in mainly open forums. Holders of a trade visitor pass at the ITB Berlin will be granted free admission to all seminars at the ITB Business Travel Days.
The ITB Business Travel Days have established themselves as a platform for the business travel segment. At the ITB Berlin 2007 more than 2,000 trade visitors came to find out about the latest industry developments. The trade magazine BizTravel, published by VW-Verlag, is the media partner of the ITB Business Travel Days 2008, as are the trade magazines Mobilitätsmanager, Tempra, travel manager and Business Travel Europe.
