Joaquin Cababie of SmartOtels will be attending ITB Berlin this week, pushing forward SmartOtels’ role as resorts and hotels sales representatives in the UK and Europe to an even wider audience. Attending ITB Berlin rounds off a series of 9 major travel trade shows attended by the company since September last year, including trade trade shows in Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, Singapore, London and, now, Berlin.
ITB Berlin undoubtedly has earned its slogan as “The world’s leading travel trade show” and SmartOtels has three distinct purposes in attending:
- Putting our client resorts and hotels in front of key contacts in the UK and Europe travel trade and raising the profile of these resorts and hotels.
- Forging closer connections with Destination Management Companies operating in each of the countries where our resorts and hotels clients are located – currently Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam.
- Finalising agreements with further prospective client resorts and hotels we have been in discussion with for some time as well as identifying potential new clients.
If your business fits any of these categories and you would like to arrange a meeting with Joaquin at ITB Berlin, you can contact him by searching “UK representation” on the ITB site or app, by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or by ‘phone on +44 7789 251395. Joaquin will be at ITB on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday – 5th, 6th and 7th March.

Joaquin Cababie said: “I don’t know another travel trade show that brings so many of the right people together in the same place as the same time at ITB Berlin. This is the most important opportunity yet for SmartOtels to connect with tour operators in the UK and Europe markets as well as with DMC’s and hoteliers from our target region of South East Asia. We are attending to put forward our clients’ resorts and hotels as well as to agree additions to our current portfolio, some of which will be the conclusion of discussions that began whilst I was in the region.
SmartOtels was launched at the end of June 2013 and manages The Harrington Serviced Residences in central London as well as representing client resorts and hotels in the UK and Europe. Additionally, through our innovative Trusted Associates scheme, SmartOtels is able to offer a much wider range of services to all of our client resorts and hotels than other sales representatives in the UK and Europe.
