August 11th, 2015

Over two days, between September 15th and 16th, the FVW Kongress will take place in Essen. The FVW Kongress is a meeting point for decision makers. Top speakers on current issues effecting industry, and outstanding networking opportunities make the congress the event of the autumn for those involved in the tourism and business sectors. The event also offers workshops for travel agencies, allowing them to gain first-hand knowledge about their destinations. There will also be a high-quality training program at the congress, with both experts from Germany, and also top tourism destinations, and selected excursions.

The FVW Kongress was established as the leading B2B-congress for decision-makers in the German-speaking travel and tourism industry. Founded in 1998, the 2014 FVW Kongress attracted around 1200 professionals from the tourism and business travel sectors. Amongst these visitors were many top-level managers of leading German travel groups like TUI, Thomas Cook, DER Touristik, FTI, Aida, Lufthansa, Air Berlin, and HRS, as well as a great number of managers from the GDS, travel technology companies, internet developers and online travel agencies. The advances in internet distribution, technology, and social media are one of the core themes of every congress.

Alongside the congress, the FVW Travel Expo is the leading B2B-fair aimed at those involved in travel distribution, tour operators and business travel management. Last year the FVW Travel Expo was attended by the 1200 visitors from the FVW Kongress, as well as an additional 1400 professionals, who only visited the travel expo and the special forums for travel agents and business travel, which accompany the congress. More than 80 exhibitors took part in the FVW Travel Expo 2014.

The FVW Kongress and the FVW Travel Expo are the place to meet and to establish new business relationships. The breaks and the Expo ground are strongly used for informal meetings. The famous Bahn Party, the official congress party sponsored by Deutsche Bahn, is the place to be on the first evening. All the congress participants come together in a relaxing and casual atmosphere to enjoy food and drink.
