We are sponsoring the first “Spirit of ITB” photo contest where attendees can submit photos of their appointments with tour operators, networking at evening functions offsite-anything that captures the spirit of the show. Just send us your ITB photos and win! The Top 3 selected by our judges will be awarded $600 in total prizes (First Prize-$300 American Express gift certificate; Second Prize-$200 American Express gift certificate; and Third Prize-$100 American Express give certificate) and will be featured in the Inbound Report.
What should you submit? Photos of people-individuals or team appointments, which capture the spirit of the event: delegates in their booths meeting and talking; people stopping to give your camera a smile; gatherings in and about Berlin ExpoCenter City; and group shots at social functions.
When should you submit them? By the close of regular business (5 p.m., PDT) on March 16th.
When will the winners be revealed? Finalists will be announced on March 23rd in the Inbound Report. Reader comments will be invited in order to help select the winners, who will be announced on March 30th in the Inbound Report. (Winners will be notified beforehand.)
Where should you send the photos?
E-mail the photos, individually, to: [email protected].
Anything else? It is mandatory that each individual in each photo by full name, company or organization and title. No exceptions. And it would help to be specific as to the time location of the photo. As well, let us know who took the photo.
To follow the progress of the contest, make sure to read the next Inbound Report.
“The sky is falling!” Or so it seemed a year ago at ITB’s third day, when we found American Ring’s executive team–Stefan Frank, Margaret Dietermann and Sam Zonni—holding meetings at a table that was moved outside their booth. Evidently, a portion of the booth’s ceiling had collapsed right onto Ms. Dietermann’s arm the day before and they weren’t taking any chances.)
Also From Last Year—Hans and Franz: Every year, the two men pictured here can be found roaming the ITB floor showing elaborately designed facial hair and INBOUND’s publisher has always wanted to know their backstory. Evidently, they represent a club that keeps alive a tradition from the 18th Century in which each regiment in the Prussian army sculpts their beards and mustache into a unique design—sort of a crest made of hair.
