Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 2 February 2010

Messe Berlin (Singapore), the organizer of ITB Asia, has appointed Mr Nino Grttke as Executive Director.

 Mr Gruttke, who will lead the ITB Asia team, will help develop participation from the Asian meetings, incentives, convention and exhibition (MICE) market. The second objective will be to expand the exhibitor base of ITB Asia, which takes place 20-22 October in Singapore.

After the inaugural show in 2008, ITB Asia in 2009 strengthened its position as one of the travel industrys leading travel trade show for the Asian market. Despite economically difficult times, visitor numbers at ITB Asia 2009 held up strongly while attendance numbers at competing trade shows declined.

Before joining Messe Berlin (Singapore), Mr Grttke held a number of executive positions at Messe Berlin head office in the German capital, including assistant to the Chief Operating Officer. Only 27, Mr Grttke is already regarded in the industry as a highly accomplished trade fair specialist.

 Dr Martin Buck, Director of Messe Berlins Competence Center Travel & Logistics, said, Nino brings new leadership, energy and strategic thinking to our already successful ITB Asia team. This year we are confident of renewed growth and another great show that will deliver impressive business results to exhibitors and buyers alike.
