Germany Travel Mart

Dresden is to be the location of the 44th Germany Travel Mart in 2018, exactly 20 years since the conference visited the city for the first time. Travel Mart is an annual trade fair organised by the German National Tourist Board and held in a different city each year. Dresden has been chosen to host the event in 2018, and we at Dresden Marketing Board will be taking care of all the organisational details locally.

We are delighted to be welcoming representatives of the travel industry from more than 40 countries all around the world to our beautiful city from 6th to 8th May, giving us the opportunity to showcase the sheer diversity what we have to offer tourists, the richness of our artistic and cultural landscape as well as the wonders of the surrounding region – in particular the Saxon Elbland and ‘Saxon Switzerland’.

We look forward to seeing you at the 44th Germany Travel Mart (6th - 8th May 2018). Online registration for the event commences in late autumn 2017 at

Partners and supporters

Thank you, partners!
Any event is only as good as its contributors. And all the signs are that GTM 2018 will be very, very good.
That’s why we want to say thank you to our many partners and suppliers at this early stage. It is only due to their commitment that we are able to hold this major tourist convention. Our role as host city enables us to profile Dresden as an attractive and unforgettable destination – and as a strong brand. This will provide a long-term boost to city marketing, tourism marketing and conference/location marketing as well as theme and event marketing.

Typical Dresden fayre: Our local caterers will be making a valuable contribution to the success of GTM 2018 by bringing their considerable experience to bear and delighting guests with regional cuisine.

One set of partners whose contribution should not be underestimated are our reliable beverage suppliers who know what an occasion like this entails and have the all the right equipment for it.

A well-rested delegate will always get more out of a conference. Our guests stay in modern and exclusive accommodation. And they can look forward to having a successful and enjoyable time on the Elbe. So, a big thank-you to our hotel partners.

What would a city of culture such as Dresden be without music and entertainment? Thanks to our experienced cultural partners, guests attending GTM will get the full package – Dresden’s diversity plus Elbland traditions.

Dresden is able to offer out-of-the-ordinary attractions. Thanks to our location partners who provide fantastic venues for meetings, talks, networking and celebrations.

And also to our agencies and service providers whose work on the organisation and logistics for GTM 2018 in Dresden will make this a truly unforgettable event.
