PRESS RELEASE – Team of Cologne Business School Students Honors Best Exhibitors at the ITB in Berlin

Once again, as part of the ITB 2015, a team of Tourism majors at the Cologne Business School will be evaluating each of the 11,000 exhibition booths at the trade show during the fair dates for visitors. Using a sophisticated set of criteria, the students will distinguish the best exhibitor within the

Best Exhibitor Awards ceremony on Saturday, March 7th at 6pm at the Palais am Funkturm.

In collaboration with the Cologne-based consultancy firm, COMPASS GmbH and as ITB partner, the team of students will examine the areas: design, creativity, booth division, B2B as regards personnel, informative literature, activities / special promotions as well as the overall impression before awarding prizes for the best trade show appearances in eleven standard and two special categories.

In order to ensure maximum transparency and objectivity, a second evaluation takes place among the 15 highest rated exhibitors in each category.
