ITB Berlin: Springboard for South American start-ups

TravelUps! Startup Challenge

ITB Berlin supports Argentina’s ‘Travelups! Startup Challenge’. The winner will receive a comprehensive exhibitor package for the eTravel World

The perfect way to achieve success: With the ‘Travelups! Startup Challenge’ on 31 October 2017 at the Feria Internacional de Turismo de América Latina (FIT) in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s start-up community will be recognising South American travel industry start-ups. The winner will receive a comprehensive exhibitor package for the eTravel World at ITB Berlin 2018. The Travel Technology segment at the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show® gives start-ups access to the global market and a chance to showcase their innovations to professionals from around the world.

This competition has been held at Turtech since 2015, the eCommerce segment of FIT, the South American travel trade show. The aim is to provide start-ups, investors and major players in the tourism industry with an interactive space to explore the opportunities offered by the tourism and technology sectors. It also showcases the start-up scene in Argentina’s tourism industry and presents tourism industry solutions.

South American start-ups have time until 18 September 2017 to enter the ’Travelups Startup Challenge’ with their innovations and ideas. A selection will be made based on three criteria: technology, sustainability and user-friendliness. After the jury has made its choice the ten best companies will compete in the challenge at FIT in Buenos Aires. The show will take place from 28 to 31 October 2017.
