About the sector

Travel & Entertainment

Travelling has become a way of life in Germany. At the same time, Germany itself is becoming increasingly popular as a holiday destination - not only among international visitors, but also among locals. This results in great market potential for the German travel and leisure industry. There is similarly great potential for the entertainment industry. Digital business models facilitate access to new customer segments and innovative products.
