The seventh annual PhoCusWright@ITB takes place Wednesday 7 March 2012 in conjunction with ITB Berlin. Media and bloggers are invited to attend all or part of the conference, including a post-conference reception. Attendees will gain important insights on emerging travel trends that will include data from newly released reports on mobile and the European vacation rental market, and hear from industry innovators who are redefining travel as we know it.
On Tuesday 29 November, Four bgb hosted an informal ‘Ski Afternoon Tea' evening to celebrate the start of the ski season.
It was hugely rewarding to see such a great turn out to the third British Travel Press Awards on Monday night. I'm an advisor to the awards because I think it's an excellent idea to have a neutral awards scheme which recognises excellent travel writing, broadcasting, blogging and photography. Well done to all the winners who included;
World Travel Market this year had a fantastic focus on social media. Social Travel Market (@socialtrav) sessions were set up alongside the main event by The Sunday Times online travel editor Steve Keenan (@stevekeenan) and Mark Frary (@markfrary)
Four bgb sponsored the social media session at World Travel Market this year. It was so packed that, while I was at an event later that day someone said to me: "I recognise your voice, did you just give that presentation on social media? I was at the back of the room and could hear but couldn't see you."
I love the Wednesday of World Travel Market. It's a day focused on sustainable travel, but it's also the moment when the winners of the Virgin Holidays' Responsible Tourism Awards run by responsibletravel.com are announced. I'm one of several judges who agonise over the shortlisted finalists every year. Then, each year at the award ceremony, we're moved by meeting the people who have worked so tirelessly for change.
The Wednesday of World Travel Market is one of the best days of the whole week for me, because it's the day the winners of the Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Awards are announced.

Last week, the Travel Bloggers Unite conference landed in Innsbruck, Austria and Four bgb was the event's official PR partner.
