40th Day of Coach Tourism 2022

11th January 2021 in Duisburg, Germany

New Normality for Coach Tourism – Return to the Future

Postponed – New Date: 7. November 2022
Due to the aggravated situation of the covid-19 pandemic, the 40. „Tag der Bustouristik“ has to be shifted to November 7th 2022.

The German authorities and the regional authorities of the State of Hesse and of the City of Wiesbaden installed strict measures to combat increasing numbers of infections and people hospitalised. The uncertainties of the current situation forced the organizer and the hosting City of Wiesbaden to postpone the leading event of coach tourism to November 7th 2022. This being the first postponement in 40 years.

The wellbeing of all participants and the employment of strict care of health regulations has absolute priority for us and Wiesbaden Congress & Marketing.

Since short term improvements are not predictable, we mutually decided to make a clear step: The B2B convention is newly terminated into the coming fall, on November 7th 2022. Immediately after the coach tourism season. At the same place and in the same attractive ambiente.

In contrast to the very successful hybride organization of the past event in Duisburg we – organizer and host –decisively determined to arrange the upcoming 40. “Tag der Bustouristik“ on a face-to-face basis. An anniversary implies communication, networking, know-how-transfer and appearances in person. Wiesbaden and all of the partners involved stand for high quality programs and contents.This includes the inspiring Get-together – face-to-face on the evening of Nov. 6th.

We would be delighted if you would participate on the new date.
