Welcome address of Head of the Federal Agency for Tourism Oleg Safonov to the participants of the international travel fair Intourmarket-2015


Dear friends, esteemed colleagues,

On behalf of the Federal Agency for Tourism I am happy to welcome participants, guests and organizers of the 10th International travel fair “Intourmarket (ITM) −2015”!

I consider it very symbolic that the anniversary year for the Fair coincides with the period of renewal for the Russian travel industry.

More and more people while planning their vacation prefer to learn more about their motherland. Travel industry professionals note a growing interest in domestic and incoming tourism.

This interest is governed by significant activities targeted at creation of the national tourism infrastructure — new tourist sites are open, modern tourist clusters, hotels are built, service quality improves. Big efforts are undertaken to promote travel potential of the Russian regions the great merit of which is due to “Intourmarket” — a traditional venue for vivid demonstration of the Russian regions and national travel companies achievements.

The fair provides a valuable opportunity for tourist administrations and travel industry professionals to discuss and to find solutions to many topical issues of the industry.

I am delighted to congratulate the exhibition organizers on the opening of the anniversary season and wish all participants every success in their work, establishment of new business and personal contacts and further fruitful cooperation!

Oleg Safonov
Head of the Federal Agency for Tourism
