Paris, France – 13 April 2023 – Rail Europe, the global reference brand for European train booking, is excited to announce its participation in the Germany Travel Mart (GTM) 2023, taking place from 16 to 18 April in Essen, Germany.
The GTM is the largest B2B incoming tourism event in Germany, which brings together travel industry professionals from around the world to showcase the latest products, trends, and developments in the global travel industry. As one of the most innovative stakeholders in the railway and travel industry, Rail Europe will be participating in the event to showcase its European rail offerings as well as services for tour operators and online travel agencies.
"We are thrilled to be participating in the Germany Travel Mart for the very first time, in 2023. Germany is not only an important market and one of the most popular destinations for Rail Europe, but also a hub for European train travel. We look forward to meeting with travel industry professionals from all regions to discuss how to even better address their customers’ needs and expectations", said Björn Bender, CEO of Rail Europe.
Germany is one of the largest and most influential travel markets in Europe. According to the German National Tourist Board, the number of international overnight stays in Germany increased by 120% in 2022 compared to the previous year, from 31.0 to 68.1 million. Germany benefits from an extensive and efficient rail network, which makes it easy for travellers to explore the country and connect to other European destinations. Germany's strong rail transport system, with a history of top quality and service, efficient, reliable and sustainable offering, has made the country a very popular destination for both business and individual travellers.
The ability of Rail Europe to offer customers a seamless German as well as cross-border and European experience is a major advantage for the travel industry.
