This year‘s ITB trade-only days – with a record of 120,000 trade visitors - from 9th to 11th March were as busy and brisk as ever for the RDA team. The RDA International Coach Tourism Federation and RDA-Workshop Touristik Service GmbH were represented once again with a stand in Hall 12. Dieter Gauf, CEO RDA International Coach Tourism Federation, and Anna Schwenk of RDA-Workshop Touristik Service GmbH led the RDA delegation. Trade visitor queries were answered and discussions were held with numerous tourism and transport sector decision-makers and coach and group tourism partners. A high-level meeting was held between Ms. Heike Brehmer MP CDU/CSU and Chairperson of the German Federal Parliament’s Tourism Committee and RDA CEO, Dieter Gauf. Ms. Brehmer stated clearly that many European regions needed tourism business as a motor for economic development, future investment and employment perspectives. Ms. Brehmer is indeed very close to our industry and will hold the opening speech at the inaugural prologue RDA-Workshop on Thursday, 7th April 2016, in Friedrichshafen. In addition, Mr. Gauf also discussed the amelioration of bureaucratic impediments associated with a recent increase in coach group access fees to visitor attractions and historic city centres in Tuscany, Italy, with Mr. Stefano Ciuoffo, State Minister for the Tuscany Tourism Region and Mr. Alberto Peruzzini, Director of Tuscany Promotions.
