The new TravelBistro

 - The new TravelBistro

FESPO is celebrating its 30th anniversary – and there is a present for you to mark the occasion. Together with the online travel platform TravelBistro, a new meeting place is being created in FESPO hall 1 where you can swap experiences with other travel fans in a pleasant atmosphere.

Globetrotters can relax in comfortable seats in the public lounge for informal chats and the chance to glean exciting insider tips. Discussions on various travel trends will be held in the TravelBistro (see programme on this page), which the public are welcome to join.


At 3 p.m. the discussion will focus on cuisine and culture from travel destinations. Various countries will serve their specialities – so treat yourself to some tasty bites.

The detailed programme is available on the TravelBistro and FESPO websites. So take a look – and, of course, drop by in person at the TravelBistro.


TravelBistro is the product of a passion: the passion for travel, adventure and discovering other cultures around the globe. TravelBistro provides journalists and travel experts alike with tips and ideas focusing on travel, excursions, service and foreign cultures. Given that the success of a travel experience also hinges on food, the website also includes recipes, restaurant and bar tests.


TravelBistro is the venue for German-speaking globetrotters, who have left their thirties behind them, and so know exactly what they want of a holiday.
