Whether "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra or "San Francisco" by Scott McKenzie - in addition to the much-praised cities, numerous other US destinations magically attract visitors from all over the world. From 5 to 9 February, the USA, as the partner country of REISEN HAMBURG, will provide information about which ones are the most popular.
The United States are the dream destination for many Germans. By the year 2019, more than two million tourists with German passports will have traveled to the USA. The reasons for this unbroken fascination are as varied as the interests and travel plans of the tourists can be. The USA impresses with its incomparable and varied nature, pulsating cities, a culinary range and above all a warm and open hospitality.
„REISEN HAMBURG 2020 offers the USA every opportunity to present itself to the North German public as a versatile long-haul destination," says Heiko Zimmermann, Divisional Director at Hamburg Messe und Congress. "With the partner country, we are bringing the American way of life into the exhibition halls. This will be a real highlight for visitors."
Biggest USA presence ever
The contact point for visitors will be the large Partner Country stand in Hall B5. "Participation at the REISEN HAMBURG 2020 will be the largest presence at a public fair that Visit USA has ever organized", emphasizes Tilo Krause-Dünow, Vice President Visit USA and Managing Director of CANUSA Touristik GmbH.
The country of unlimited possibilities has a huge land area that is more than 27 times the size of Germany. Travellers can discover almost 20,000 kilometres of coastline, over 50 metropolitan regions with more than one million inhabitants and 61 national parks, as well as countless other protected areas such as Provincial Parks and National Monuments. But the country's diversity can hardly be captured in numbers, and it is almost impossible to know the entire USA. The green forests of the New England States, the award-winning beaches of Florida, the magic of the Southern States, the endless expanses of the Midwest, the beautiful Pacific coast, the untouched wilderness of Alaska or the incomparable and spectacular national parks throughout the country are just a few examples of the diversity of nature in the 50 states. Whether shopping trip or hiking tour lasting several weeks, whether architecture expert or nature photographer, whether sports or car fan, whether gourmet or barbecue enthusiast, whether Statue of Liberty or sequoia, whether travelling alone or with the family - in the USA everybody can spend his holiday exactly the way he wants to.
At the REISEN HAMBURG 2020, the experts will not only give the best insider tips for the most beautiful places from East to West, the attractive destination invites visitors to enjoy culinary delicacies, exciting travel lectures and many activities for visitors. Krause-Dünow: "We are very pleased to welcome visitors to a very varied and interactive USA stand, which will really whet the appetite for a trip to the land of unlimited possibilities".
