Egypt has been confirmed as the partner country for ITB Berlin 2012. The agreement was officially signed by the Egyptian Tourist Authority and ITB Berlin on 1 July 2010.

As an all-year-round destination Egypt occupies a firm place in world-wide tourism, said managing director Tamer Marzouk. The ITB Berlin provides the ideal platform for presenting Egypt on the German market and on international markets as a holiday destination with a wide choice of tourism attractions, and for continuing to develop our top position as one of the most popular holiday destinations. Egypt is also becoming more firmly established as a MICE destination, another sector in which the ITB Berlin provides the ideal setting in which to strengthen contacts with representatives of the international meetings and events industry.

Egypts increased presence at ITB Berlin 2011 gives a clear indication: the land of the Pharaohs is for the first time presenting its current tourism potential in its entirety in a single hall. Egypts move from Hall 21b to Hall 23b is also accompanied by a three-fold increase in the size of its display area.

At the next ITB Berlin international trade visitors and the general public will be able to find out more about Egypts attractions as a travel destination on an area of 1,960 square metres, compared with the previous stand area of only 588 square metres. This makes the land of the Pyramids one of the largest exhibitors at the mammoth show.

David Ruetz, Senior Manager, ITB Berlin, said, Egypt is one of the worlds oldest travel destinations and nowadays it combines modernity and tradition. A culture that goes back thousands of years, exciting desert areas, the Nile and endless beaches make this country one of the worlds most attractive holiday destinations. Egypts tourism industry continues to develop and, among the destinations preferred by German travellers, it is one of the countries reporting the highest growth rates.
