The Intourmarket Fair is a dedicated tourist platform for expanding intra-industry dialogue and working out optimal solutions and options for the market to develop in new conditions. It is there that effective mechanisms are developed and inter-branch relations are established, which help to create essentially new high-quality tourist products and elevate service in the industry to higher standards. The Intourmarket is the only exhibition in Russia that represents the complete tourist product of our country — absolutely all regions of Russia participate in the event. Without any exaggeration the Intourmarket Fair is “at the height” of the main tourist trend — import substitution in tourism.

At the same time, the traditional leaders of the outbound Russian travelers: Spain, Turkey, Greece, Germany, Bulgaria, China, Cyprus, and other countries for which Russia is the traditional and popular market, participate in the exhibition. The CIS countries are traditionally active at the Fair.

The Russian regional exposition will feature an overwhelming majority of regions from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok. Among them is Altai Krai — the strategic partner of the exhibition. The 300 sq.m. booth will host a large-scale presentation of travel companies, resorts, health centers, handicrafts, eco-tourism potential, performances by folklore groups and much more according to the organizers’ plans. The Governor of the region will traditionally head the regional delegation at the exhibition.

The feature of Intourmarket this year is that the regions organize a single exposition space for the vast majority of brand routes. The Golden Ring route has been known from the Soviet times all over the world as a journey covering the ancient Russian cities of Central Russia; last year we celebrated its 50th anniversary. The Silver Necklace of Russia route is based on the same principles. In addition to St. Petersburg, the route goes through 10 entities: Republic of Karelia, Komi, Nenets Autonomous District, Arkhangelsk, Vologda, Kaliningrad, Leningrad, Murmansk, Novgorod, and Pskov Regions. Their tourist potential is huge featuring cultural and historical sites, beautiful natural landscapes and traditions of small nations.

At the exhibition other routes will be demonstrated, for example, “Russian estates”, “The Great Volga Route” with the Volga region family, “Eastern Ring” connecting the regions of the Far East — the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and Buryatia, Kamchatka and Khabarovsk Territories. The routes “Russian Arctic”, “Rivers of Russia” function and keep on being developed.

At the exhibition you can study the offers of leading tour operators and accommodation facilities, get a closer look at new tourist routes and take part in competitions and trip voucher draw. Potential travelers will enjoy tasting national dishes and performances of folk groups.

All the guests of Intourmarket gladly note the amazing holiday atmosphere created at the exhibition. And travel industry professionals rightly appreciate the opportunity provided for both discussing relevant issues in a close dialogue, and finding a solution to many pressing topics.
