AVE Cities Network is promoted once again in one of the most important tourist events in the world, International Tourism Fair of Berlin (ITB). The brand goes there with the aim of closing important agreements with tour operators, increasing connections with the German country as well as contributing to the increase of travelers who opt for its products, Avexperience and Renfe Spain Pass, to get to know Spain through 29 unique destinations. Germany is a country of particular interest to the Network since, today, it is one of the most important tourism issuers for our country.
On the agenda, this Network has closed business meetings with major tour operators such as Euroadventure, Voyages SNCF Deutschland, ACP Rail International Limited, Travel Composer, Amigo Group or Premier travel and tourism, among others, as well as with the head of the Spanish Tourism Office from Frankfurt, with whom a new online marketing campaign has already been closed, in collaboration with Renfe.
The president of the Network and delegate of Urban Habitat, Culture and Tourism of the Seville City Council, Antonio Muñóz, will also attend this fair, who will meet personally with Voyages-SNCF Deutschland GmbH to suggest a possible collaboration.
The ITB is one of the most important fairs, worldwide, of the tourism industry and represents a great opportunity for participating companies to close commercial contracts and learn about the latest trends and developments in the sector. It is also a good attraction for visitors as they can find out about the tourist and international leisure possibilities of the moment.
