The Assistant Minister for Tourism attended the International Tourism Exchange (ITB), which is the world's leading trade fair for the travel and tourism industry. Luxembourg was represented with a stand organized by Luxembourg for Tourism. The stand showcased the tourist attractions of the Grand Duchy and also provided local tourism stakeholders from Luxembourg with an excellent chance to network and make business contacts.

The partners that took part in the Luxembourg stand at ITB 2024 are: Luxembourg City Tourist Office (LCTO), Mondorf Domaine Thermal, Voyages Emile Weber, DMC by Sales-Lentz,, Accor, Youthostels Luxembourg, LUGA - Luxembourg Urban Garden and the Ecole d'hôtellerie et de tourisme du Luxembourg (EHTL), whose students provided service at the stand.

During the 12th edition of "Accessible Tourism Day" at the ITB, Eric Thill, the Assistant Minister for Tourism, presented Luxembourg's strategy to take a pioneering role in "tourism for all". He explained that the country is striving to raise awareness and support tourism stakeholders to focus on accessible and comfortable offers for all people, especially those with special needs. The aim is to make accessibility a common thread and an essential quality criterion for both locals and foreign visitors.

Eric Thill, who also serves as Minister of Culture, took the opportunity to meet with Luxembourg artists and creative people who live and work in Berlin. He visited the Michel Majerus Estate and celebrated their work, recognizing the valuable contribution of Luxembourg's artists in the cultural landscape of Europe.

The Michel Majerus Estate is a hub for contemporary art in Berlin, dedicated to showcasing the work of artists from Luxembourg and around the world. The estate offers a unique and inspiring environment for creative people to live and work, and Eric Thill's visit highlights the importance that Luxembourg places on supporting and promoting its artists and cultural practitioners.
