I am delighted to welcome you at the opening X Anniversary International Travel fair „Intourmarket-2015”!
The exhibition that this year is held for the 10th time since 2006 is a strategically significant event for the world travel market and for our country in particular. It clearly demonstrates Russia’s huge tourist potential, promotes the national tourist product providing for development of the national travel industry and improvement of tourist service quality in accordance with the international standards.
In 2015 Russia expects a considerable growth of domestic tourism. This new long-anticipated stage for the industry becomes possible thanks to a long-term activity aimed at the development of high quality infrastructure — construction of first-rate hotels, world class theme parks, roads and new air routes.
I wish the organizers, exhibitors and guests of the „Intourmarket” Travel fair to have efficient business talks, to establish new contacts, to be in a great mood, to enjoy communication and to gain unforgettable experience!
MINISTER OF CULTURE OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
