Commitment for mobility and travel
Mobility and travel play an important role in Germany: The Germans love travelling. And Germany itself is becoming increasingly popular as a travel destination for guests from Germany and abroad. Additionally, there are about 170 million business travels registered each year in Germany. At present about 2.9 million people work in the German tourism industry.
People want to be mobile, they want to travel, meet friends and business partners, make new acquaintances and learn about different cultures. Precisely this is the aim of the Federal Association of the German Tourism Industry (BTW) and its members. About 40 of the largest enterprises and federations of the tourism industry in Germany are members of BTW. The spectrum covers air, road, water and rail traffic, hotel and catering services, tour operators and tourism marketing. It covers private tourism and private mobility as well as the business travel sector.
Since its establishment in 1995, the BTW is committed to represent the common and overall interests and needs of the tourism industry. The ultimate goal is to maintain and to optimize mobility. Fiscal and labor policy, competition, the implementation of climate protection and infrastructure play important roles.
The BTW focuses especially on the following requirements for its political activities:
