visitBerlin - Partner Events
We organise regular events for partners, providing information on current visitBerlin activities and news of future projects. These events also serve as a platform for partner networking across a range of sectors. The events we offer are extremely diverse – from meetings to workshops, training events, market days and speed networking.

visitBerlin@ - our annual partner event
Every year, key players in the tourism sector, partner hotels and cultural partners are invited to the visitBerlin@ event. This partner event showcases the latest visitBerlin projects and activities, and presents the figures on the development of tourism in Berlin and the estimates for the future. Afterwards at an informal get-together, the focus is on exchanging views and experience, with various networking tools used to encourage participants to develop dialogues and discussions.
Berlin MICE Summit
The Berlin MICE Summit is the leading fair for the Berlin meetings and conventions industry. The Summit, held every two years, is an open, creative forum encouraging dialogue. Inspired by the Open Space format, there are no formal presentations and the event evolves through its focus on the concerns of the participants.
In 2016, under the motto of Berlin: Fit for the future – Strong in competition, those taking part generated a wide range of innovative ideas. The aim is to work on these spheres of action with the participants proposing the topics and the pertinent actors. The visitBerlin Berlin Convention Office will then inform participants at regular intervals of the findings and the next steps.
ITB Berlin – the world’s leading travel trade show
The ITB Berlin is the world’s largest travel trade show. In the familiar setting of Hall 12, visitBerlin and TMB (Tourismus-Marketing Brandenburg GmbH) showcase the tourism region of Berlin and Brandenburg for an audience of approximately 175,000 ITB Berlin visitors every year.
The Berlin hotel industry and key tourist service providers are also offered the chance of being a co-exhibitor at the main stand or using our brochure service.
Market Days and Training Events
We regularly hold Market Days and training events with our hotel, tourism and travel trade partners. visitBerlin issues the invitations for events where partners can learn about some current topic of interest. The talks at these events are given both by visitBerliners as well as by external speakers.
Site inspections for our partners
Our site inspections provide our cooperation partners and Berlin WelcomeCard sales partners with a chance to find out about the services offered by our BWC discount partners. On our site inspections, you meet discount partners and learn about their range of services at first hand, and have the chance to network with other service providers in the tourism sector.
Several site inspections are again planned for 2017. Since group size is limited, we would ask only employees from our cooperation and sales partners to apply to join these site inspections.
Registrations are binding. If you should be unable to participate on the date you have registered for, let us know well in advance. Please note that if you register for a site inspection and do not turn up without informing us beforehand, we would be unable to include you in future site inspections.
DEHOGA and visitBerlin Summer Party and New Year Reception
Every year, DEHOGA Berlin and visitBerlin invite guests to their New Year reception and a summer party. Both these events attract numerous representatives from the political sphere and business community, as well as the hotel and leisure sectors. After welcome speeches by the hosts and Michael Müller, Berlin’s Governing Mayor, the guests have the chance to meet and network in a relaxed atmosphere.
Tourism Day is held every two years, hosted by visitBerlin together with the Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research, the Berlin Chamber of Commerce (IHK) and the DEHOGA Berlin, and dedicated to a topic of current interest or relevance in tourism. The guests include professionals from Berlin’s tourism, hotel and cultural sectors, as well as media representatives. Sector experts present talks and invite participants to debate the topics under discussion.
visitBerlin Speed Networking
The visitBerlin speed networking event is held twice a year. Partner hotels as well as partners in the tourism and cultural sectors are invited to these speed business meetings. With this round robin model, all participants have a chance to meet individually on a one-to-one basis. In four-minute talks, they introduce themselves, exchange views and identify possible areas of cooperation. Conversations started during the speed networking session can then be continued at the get-together afterwards.
If you are interested in taking part in our visitBerlin speed networking events, just contact us by email at kooperation@visitBerlin.de.
