Russia and the Dominican Republic have a long history of collaborating at the OTDYKH Leisure fair, as the Dominican Republic has been participating since 2002. Last year, the Ministry of Tourism for the Dominican Republic won the title of “Best exhibition stand”. Their 2019 stand included 11 co-exhibitors, among which were hotels, resorts and incoming tour operators. This year they will have an exclusively designed 200m2 stand, which they will host with a bigger number of co-exhibitors.
Official data shows that from January to December last year, 6,446,036 international tourists visited the country. Russia consistently ranks among the Top 10 incoming markets for the Dominican Republic and the demand for tourism offers is high. In December 2019, over 25,500 Russians visited the island, which was 3,1% higher than in the same period of 2018. These record numbers moved Russia to the first place in incoming markets from Europe, leaving Germany and France behind.
The next OTDYKH Leisure Fair will take place on 8th -10th September 2020, at the Expocentre in Moscow, Russia.
