The complete guide to ITB Berlin on your mobile

Visitors to ITB Berlin who have the free ITB Mobile Guide app are always well informed.

This trade fair guide has numerous useful features, including “What’s on“, an overview of current events, plus an A to Z of ITB, which lists everything they need to know about the world’s largest travel trade show (6 to 10 March 2013). This year the Android and iPhone versions showing the grounds are once again linked to a comprehensive map of the halls. Besides a map of the grounds, information includes a list of events along with press conferences, presentations, receptions, and a function for looking up exhibitors. As usual, the app provides a list of every exhibitor, links to the Virtual Market Place, detailed descriptions, logos as well as product information. Users can also easily access the events at the ITB Berlin Convention. This year, for the first time, a function called “My Programme“ lets users organise their own convention agenda, search the list of speakers and follow live feeds.  The app also offers a wealth of information for visitors attending the show. After the fair closes the ITB Mobile Guide provides users with information on the quickest way to the city centre and tips on Berlin nightlife. Also included are restaurants, bars and information on tourist attractions.

The ITB Mobile Guide – provided by GIATA & TOURIAS – is available for downloading free of charge from the App Store and Google Play. This clever pocket-sized trade fair companion can be easily downloaded from, can be run using a mobile or smartphone browser from, or can be requested via SMS by sending the keyword “ITB” to +49-177-1781424 (individual SMS/download charges apply).
