On behalf of the Council of the Federation Committee on Social Policy it gives me great pleasure to welcome participants, organizers and guests of the 11th Travel Fair Intourmarket-2016.
For millions of people tourism has become an inseparable life component with a natural striving for discovering and learning unknown worlds, traditions and customs of countries and people, monuments of history and culture. For 11 years the Intourmarket Fair has given brilliant opportunities both for potential tourists to get familiarized with new trends and services in this sector and for professionals to improve qualification, attract new partners and clients.
The travel industry is currently facing challenging tasks of further development, upgrading quality and safety of services, attracting investments, raising funds for tourist projects, formation, promotion and realization of competitive tourist products.
The Intourmarket Travel Fair is an exclusive opportunity to display a tourist potential of the country, to create a common information field integrating not only latest technologies and travel industry achievements but also the industry insiders. During its many editions the Fair exposition has grown manifold and today the project is rightly considered a key professional world tourist event.
I wish to participants, organizers and guests of the 11th Travel Fair Intourmarket-2016 all success in work, good luck and implementation of all set plans for the benefit of tourism development.
Chairman of the Council of the Federation Committee on Social Policy
