The Intourmarket fair is a dedicated tourist platform for expanding an intra-industry dialogue and working out ultimate solutions and trends of the market development in a new environment. It is the site for developing effective mechanisms and establishing inter-branch ties that help to form brand-new quality tourist products and improve the service level in the industry. Intourmarket is the only exhibition in Russia that represents an all-embracing tourist product of our country — absolutely all regions of Russia take part in the fair. Without any exaggeration — the exhibition “Intourmarket” is “at the height” of the main tourist trend — import substitution in tourism.

At the same time, the exhibition presents traditional leaders of the outbound tourist traffic of Russians: Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Germany, Bulgaria, China, Cyprus, and other countries for which Russia is a long-established and favorite market. By tradition, the CIS countries play a full role in the exhibition.

The Russian regional exposition will be represented by an overwhelming majority of regions from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok. Among them — the Intourmarket strategic partner — the Altai Krai. As part of the region’s participation the organizers plan to use a 800 sq.m space as a venue for a large-scale presentation of travel companies, resorts, health centers, folk crafts, eco-tourism potential, folklore group performances and much more. A.B Karlin, Governor of the Region, will traditionally attend the exhibition.

The key feature of Intourmarket-2018 is a first-ever organization of a joint exposition space by the participating regions dedicated to a vast majority of brand routes. The Golden Ring route has been globally known from the Soviet times as a travel to the ancient Russian cities of Central Russia; last year we celebrated its 50th anniversary. The same concept is used for developing “The Silver necklace of Russia” route. St. Petersburg as its powerful anchor draws attention of tourists to other regions of the Northwest of Russia. In addition to St. Petersburg, the route includes 10 regions: the Republic of Karelia, Komi, the Nenets Autonomous District, Arkhangelsk, Vologda, Kaliningrad, Leningrad, Murmansk, Novgorod and Pskov regions. Their tourist potential is huge and features cultural and historical sites, beautiful natural landscapes and traditions of small nations.

Other routes are also presented domestically and internationally, for example, “Russian Manors”, “The Great Volga River Route” with a family of the Volga regions, " The Eastern Ring" uniting the regions of the Far East — the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and Buryatia, Kamchatka and Khabarovsk Regions. The routes “Russian Arctic” and “Rivers of Russia” are under development and functioning.

At the exhibition you can get acquainted with proposals of the top tour operators and accommodation facilities, learn more about new tourist routes and take part in competitions and trip voucher drawings. Potential travelers will enjoy tasting national dishes and performances of folk groups.

All Intourmarket visitors are happy to note the wonderful festivity atmosphere created at the exhibition. And travel industry professionals justly appreciate the given opportunity not only to discuss urgent topics in a close dialogue, but also to find a solution to many acute issues.
