Deutsche Messe and Hannover Marketing und Tourismus GmbH (HMTG) have joined forces to offer a standardized accommodation booking service to make it faster and easier for exhibition visitors and tourists to book a hotel in the Hannover region.
From October 1, some 140 hotels in the northwest German city of Hannover ― known for many years as a center for large international trade exhibitions, hosted at the extensive Deutsche Messe exhibition grounds and facilities ― and the surrounding region will be marketed via a single source. In addition to establishing the accommodation booking service, Deutsche Messe and HMTG have agreed to pool their resources in the future.
The new service features an international online booking system, which is available in 20 languages. From October 1 a dedicated hotel booking portal for each trade fair at the Deutsche Messe will be available at the www.hannover.de website.
Visitors will also be able to use the accommodation booking service in person in the tourist information center in Hannover’s Ernst-August-Platz, and available throughout the year. For the duration of trade fairs, additional offices will be opened at Hannover Airport and the exhibition center. Visitors will not have to pay any additional fee for this accommodation service, not even during trade fairs.
Its new partnership with HMTG means Deutsche Messe will be discontinuing its activities with Travel2Fairs for the time being. Travel2Fairs had been responsible for handling visitors’ accommodation requirements. HMTG has established a professional service for tourists and is now in the position to provide a complete range of services for Hannover from a single source, says Dr. Wolfram von Fritsch, chairman of the managing board of Deutsche Messe.
