Right in time for the ITB Berlin 2013 the third edition of the Mobile Travel App Guide – Edition 2013 powered by ITB will be published. The catalog provides an overview of selected mobile applications in the international travel industry. As in the previous years there will be an iPad as well as print version.
The close look at mobile applications in tourism revealed new bias. Last-Minute or Same-Day Hotel bookings represent the overall trend of short-term bookings especially within the Hotel segment. The pioneering app Hotel Tonight started its service already in December 2010. Since then a bunch of copy cats have entered the market. The development in technology, especially the smartphone with its geolocation capability paved the way for last-minute booking apps. Therefore, Same-Day Hotel booking apps got an own category in the Mobile Travel Guide. The second new category in this year`s edition is Flight Tracking, which summarizes apps that radar the air traffic.
Where can you get your personal copy of the Mobile Travel App Guide – Edition 2013 powered by ITB? If you attend this year`s ITB Berlin just come by the booth of mvolution (hall 7.1C, 106) and get your personal copy. If you cannot make it to the event, get the iPad version or download the technolog guide from the ITB Library.
Since 2011 the Mobile Travel App Guide has been released at the ITB Berlin. The catalog has made a name for itself among decision makers in tourism and business travel industry.
