From the 2010 archives

Reisepavillon created a face to face platform (1991-2010) that brought together tourism businesses and nature conservationists, the interests of holiday regions and the wishes of their guests. And thus sets the standard for the business sector. When applied to tourism, sustainable practices take account of the ecological and the economic and socio-cultural functions and consequences.

What started back in 1991 as a small circle has developed within a few years to a unique travel fair for quality-conscious customers and operators. All sorts of specialist forums offer in-depth information and partnership opportunities for travel professionals .

20th Anniversary Celebration
In 2010 the congress takes place April 22-24 in the German federal capital of Berlin. The informative and innovative event puts its ethics into practice. The venue facilitates networking among the varied protagonists of sustainable tourism. This year’s congress includes the following events:
