Welcome address of Oleg Safonov, Head of the Federal Agency for Tourism, to organizers, participants and guests of the XII International Travel Fair "Intourmarket"


Dear friends!

I cordially greet organizers, participants and guests of the International Travel Fair „Intourmarket — 2017”, one of the major important annual events of the world travel industry.

The year 2017 has opened up new perspectives for tourism and set new challenges for the travel industry. The stepped-up market competition and escalated „race” for a tourist make issues of improving quality of tourism products, effective pricing and implementation of modern marketing approaches most topical. The future of the Russian tourism depends directly on how well those issues will be solved.

The common goals facing the industry can be achieved on the basis of expanding cooperation of all concerned parties, a functional industry dialogue and strengthening of partnership ties. The Intourmarket Travel Fair is an excellent platform for solving these problems, as well as for promoting unique offers of the travel business and upscaling activities of tourism-related companies in the interests of the country and its citizens.

I wish organizers, guests and participants of „Intourmarket-2017” fruitful work, interesting pastime and achievement of all set targets!

Oleg Safonov,
Нead of the Federal Agency for Tourism
