Last weekend, I was in Leipzig to visit the Leipzig Book Fair 2010.
The Leipzig Book Fair is the most important spring meeting place for the publishing and media sector and has evolved into an attractive hallmark both in Germany and across Europe.
But after I arrived at the exhibition grounds, it was obvious that the fair isn’t only about Books anymore. Cosplayers, as far as the eye could see.
Since Animes and Mangas are becoming more and more famous in Germany, Cosplay is pretty popular among the fans and instead of taking pictures from books and their authors, I focused on capturing all the amazing costumes I saw during my time at the fair.
After 3 long weeks I finally got my camera back, I had to send it to the Canon support to fix a broken card slot and a broken digital board.
With my brand new (repaired) camera, I visited this years ITB, the International Tourism Fair 2010 in Berlin.
The ITB is the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show with more than 180,000 visitors, among these 108,000 trade visitors, and over 10,000 exhibitors from 180 countries. The whole variety of travelling is present at ITB Berlin: Destinations, tour operators, booking systems, carriers, hotels and all other suppliers who want to embellish their customers most beautiful weeks of the year.
It was an interesting day, besides lots of catalogs and brochures with information about the different countries, people had the chance to see traditional dances, craftsman and goods from around the world.
