NEWSDESK THE Balearic delegation will today begin withdrawing from the ITB Berlin tourism fair and start digesting the varying forecasts issued by the German travel industry about the coming summer season.

However, yesterday, the report “Hospitality vision” by Deloitte confirms that Europe continues to be the world's most popular holiday destination and that the Mediterranean region had excellent performance in 2008 with 179 million visitors, resulting in 19.4% share of world tourism.

In order to consolidate the Balearics's position as one of Europe's most popular destinations, emergency publicity campaigns are going to be launched.
