The “INTOURMARKET” travel fair is an industry-focused tourist platform for expanding the intra-industry dialogue and working out best solutions and ways of development of the market in the new environment. It is the venue for developing effective mechanisms and building inter-industry relations that help create fundamentally new quality tourism products and improve the service level in the industry

“INTOURMARKET” is the only exhibition in Russia that showcases the full range of tourist products of the country — all Russian regions participate in the fair. There is no exaggeration saying that the exhibition is “at the height” of the key tourist trend — import substitution in tourism.

At the same time the exhibition presents traditional leaders of the Russians’ outbound tourist flow: Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Bulgaria, Morocco, China, Romania, Cyprus, Thailand and other countries, to which Russia is a traditional and favorite market. CIS and Baltic countries are also very active.

Russian regional exhibition will be presented by the overwhelming majority of regions from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok. Among them is Altay region, the fair’s strategic partner. Within the framework of Altay exposition at a stand of 800 square meters the organizers are planning to carry out a large-scale presentation of travel companies, resorts, health centers, arts and crafts, eco-tourism resources, performance of folk groups and many more. By tradition the Altay region Governor A.B. Karlin will attend the exhibition.

Visitors will see stands of the Republic of Crimea, Krasnodar krai and Rostov region, the Republics of Adygea and Komi, Vladimir, Arkhangelsk, Moscow and Yaroslavl regions, Kamchatka and many other. The regions of the Volga Federal district, as it was last year, get assembled at a colorful stand under the Great Volga brand, the Far East and Siberian regions meet at the Eastern ring of Russia booth; the North Caucasus regions will showcase their travel attractions at a colorful joint exposition. On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the Golden ring route the regions of Central Federal district are joining forces to promote their resources.

Visitors will get acquainted with the proposals of the leading tour operators and accommodation facilities, find out more about new tourist routes and take part in contests and voucher prize drawing. Potential travelers will enjoy tasting national dishes and folk groups’ performances.

“INTOURMARKET” guests note happily the amazing festival atmosphere created at the exhibition. And the travel industry professionals fairly appreciate the opportunity both to discuss urgent problems in a close dialogue, and to find solutions of many pressing issues.
