ZwischenRufe – Interjections
 



Started in 1999 by Studienkreis, this series of discussions during the ITB Berlin/ Germany attempts to highlight tourism-related issues which might otherwise drift out of sight in the daily routine of the industry. In particular it calls to attention the dimension of responsibility in the tourism sector in a critical but constructive way.
From 2004 to 2010, ZwischenRufe was organized in cooperation with WDR . The event is supported by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and ITB Berlin - 2012 also by Studiosus Reisen München .
