Dear Organizers, participants and guests,
On behalf of the Altay Region I am delighted to welcome you at the 11th International Travel Fair Intourmarket 2016!
Tourism today is one of the major and profitable branches of the world economy. Russia with its unique natural and cultural-historical heritage and dynamically developing services sector is gaining growing authority in the modern tourist community. The current geo-political situation has significantly reduced international travel potential of Russian citizens, however now the Russian Federation within the framework of the import substitution course, is capable of providing its citizens with a complete range of good-quality and interesting rest.
The International Travel Fair Introumarket is the key annual event of the travel industry of Russia. Today it is an effective business platform connecting world specialists of the tourism industry and majority of national subjects.
Participation of Altay Region as the strategic partner of the Fair is a landmark event for promotion of tourism in the region. Every year we demonstrate our rich tourist potential, promote exclusive tourist product, share experience and set up promising business contacts.
I am sure that Intourmarket 2016 will further provide for development of the tourist industry in the country and formation of Russia’s image as a state favorable to tourism.
I wish new achievements and every success in implementation of the shaped plans to all participants and guests of the Fair!
A.B. Karlin, Governor of Altay Region
