ITB BookAwards 2024: The winners have been announced

For the second time the new Alice category honours the best books on travel and interesting topics for young readers, setting a new standard.

The awards ceremony of ITB BookAwards 2024 will take place on Wednesday, 5 March at 6 p.m. on the Green Stage in Hall 3.1b. The LifetimeAward goes to the French author Sylvain Tesson (published by Éditions Gallimard, Penguin, btb, Rowohlt). Two publisher awards go to Verlag Coppenrath and the oekom publisher Jacob Radloff. Honours also go to Julietta Baums and Lorenz Töpperwien for their Oman travel guide, published by Trescher Verlag, and to Prof. Dr. Eric Horster for two tourism literature works on the same destination (Verlag Haufe and SpringerGabler).

Every year ITB Berlin, which is taking place from 5 to 7 March 2024 in Berlin, recognises titles from Germany and other countries, mainly in German, but also in German translation. In doing so it honours outstanding publishing achievements – and aims to focus attention on the broad spectrum of important travel and tourism publications beyond national borders.The winners of the ITB BookAwards 2024 were chosen by an independent jury of experts on science, the relevant countries and from the media, publishing and bookstores. This year’s main “DestinationsAward” category focuses on travel in Oman, the Official Host Country of ITB Berlin 2024.

Once again, ITB Berlin is partnering with Börsenverein Deutschen Buchhandels and the Frankfurt Book Fair for the Guest of Honour 2024 presentation (Italy). The ITB BookAwards do not confer prize money.
