Every year, an independent jury presents awards honouring outstanding travel and tourism publications


To whet appetites for this coming travel season the first winner of the ITB BookAwards 2018 has already been announced: it is the wall calendar ‘The Sea 2018’ from Weingarten. The publisher is KV&H Verlag. The large wall calendar was chosen by ITB Berlin in cooperation with the RavensBuch bookstore from Friedrichshafen.

The award for the best calendar is among those chosen by the jury and presented at ITB Berlin, the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show®, in March 2018 in Berlin.

David Ruetz, head of ITB Berlin who chairs the jury: ”Frank Krahmer, a German nature photographer, has impressively captured the beauty of the untamable and sublime world of the oceans and their energy with spectacular light effects.“

Every year, at the beginning of ITB Berlin, the annual Messe Berlin ITB BookAwards recognise the latest and most interesting publications from Germany and abroad, mainly in German, but also in translation. The aim of the awards is to focus attention beyond national borders on the broad spectrum of important travel and tourism publications.
