This year’s ITB Asia at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore will adopt Bold Thoughts, Bold Moves as its conference theme, and bring together thought leaders from across the MICE, leisure, corporate, and travel tech sectors.
Across the three-day conference, attendees will have the opportunity to experience over 100 sessions featuring insights from more than 260 speakers including representatives from American Express Global Business Travel, Traveloka, Hotelbeds, and Thomas Cook China.
Bold Thoughts, Bold Moves will feature a range of themed sessions, including Corporate Travel, Travel & Tech, Destination Marketing and Muslim Travel, with keynote discussions conducted in the Knowledge Theatre.

Senior representatives from AKARYN Hotel Group, GCP Hospitality, Intrepid Group, Lonely Planet, THE RIDE and Travelzoo, will share their perceptions on vital issues facing the travel industry today.
A Corporate Travel showcase will also be carved out of the ITB show floor to cater to the growing number of corporate participants. As well, ITB Asia’s corporate partner, ACTE, will again be organising its exclusive Corporate Travel Day on Day Two of the show.
On the Travel & Tech front, leading travel players will identify trends and cutting-edge technologies that are driving the travel industry.
Finally, Destination Marketing and Muslim Travel sessions will feature top practitioners in these sectors dishing out insider tips on getting the most from social media to promote travel destinations; utilising destination brands to attract interest; best practices in developing Muslim-friendly destinations; and reaching out to the modern Muslim millennial.
