As in previous years, incoming agencies, hotels, shipping companies, airlines and railways, museums, package tour operators, insurance companies, media service providers, publishers, software providers and many other suppliers from almost all European countries will present their new products and services. Even suppliers of long-distance travel to Australia, Nepal and Uzbekistan will be present as exhibitors.
The French tourist board Atout France, the Lithuanian tourist board Lithuania Travel, the cruise line Costa and the tour operator DERTOUR Gruppenreisen are among the new exhibitors.
The RDA EXPO Night will take place on the evening of the first day of the exhibition on the MS RheinFantasie of the Köln-Düsseldorfer Schifffahrtsgesellschaft. While the evening cruise on the Rhine passes the Cologne skyline, there will be music, Kölsch on tap and a delicious dinner provided on deck.
Free trade visitor tickets and tickets for the RDA EXPO Night (€ 39) can be ordered online at www.rda-expo.de/en/tickets.

"With over 230 exhibitors, we were able to meet our target despite a short starting phase. It's time for the Corona restrictions to end so that we can all get back to regular business. The imminent removal of the assistance measures makes it necessary for every coach and group tour operator to purchase their 2023 travel programme in a well-planned manner. The RDA Group Travel Expo 2022 in Cologne is the ideal platform for this," says RDA President Benedikt Esser.
