As a source of inspiration and information for holidaymakers travel blogs are becoming more and more popular. For a number of years ITB has held several events for international travel bloggers, providing opportunities to exchange knowledge and enabling them to meet with trade visitors and exhibitors. Next year, in cooperation with TransitMedia and visitBerlin, for the first time ITB Berlin will be organising a Blog Camp. On 1 and 2 March 2015 Sebastian Canaves and Conni Biesalski will be among those giving fascinating workshops and creative sessions aimed at teaching participants how to improve their blogs in order to reach more readers and showing them how they can earn money with their reports and trips.
From 13 to 26 October 2014 anyone interested can sign up for the ITB Blog Camp at https://www.blog-camp.de/itb-blog-camp-2015/, where detailed information is available about the camp and on how to apply. Applicants should be passionate about blogging and travelling, have a minimum blogging experience of two years and post blogs at least four times a month. Twenty bloggers will be selected from the applications. The first five successful applicants will receive free overnight accommodation from Saturday to Sunday in a hip Berlin design hotel and take part in a bicycle tour, both sponsored by visitBerlin. In general, participants must pay their travel and overnight expenses themselves. Anyone arriving on Saturday, 28 February 2015, can join the networking evening. visitBerlin also organizes a rallye to the Teufelsberg on 3 March 2015. Application details to be announced soon.
Participation in the ITB Blog Camp is the ideal way to prepare for a visit to the world’s leading travel trade show. The event will take place on the weekend before ITB Berlin, which opens its doors on 4 March.
