Sunny blue skies and an upbeat atmosphere were much in evidence at this year’s RDA Group Travel Expo 2018 in Cologne on 3rd and 4th July – the largest European trade-only, sales and purchasing platform for the coach and group tourism sectors. Some 600 exhibitors with offers from 70 countries along with trade visitors from thousands of coach and group tour operator companies throughout Germany and Europe participated.

The response from both exhibitors and visitors to dealings in the spacious and bright Halls 6 and 9 of Koelnmesse / Cologne Trade Fair has been encouraging once again. Face-to-face meetings with coach and group holiday specialists and experts and the quality of business contacts were highly praised.

RDA President, Benedikt Esser, reiterated in his opening address the importance of personal contacts and of building trust. A special welcome was also extended this year to the Ambassador of Uzbekistan in Germany, Mr. Nabijon Kasimov, and to the Russian Union of Travel Industry.

Next year’s RDA Group Travel Expos will take place on 2nd and 3rd April 2019 in Friedrichshafen and on 9th and 10th July 2019 in Cologne
