There are fewer foreigners at the tourism exhibition in St. Petersburg, but more regions of Russia
The 24th International Tourism exhibition “Inwetex” was opened October 13 in the Northern capital and will be held three days at the "Lenexpo" complex.
At the same time, there was less scale of the foreign participants then before. Despite the fact that Egypt is negotiating about resumption of air links, its delegation did not come. Unlike last year, there were no exposure of Bulgaria and Italy. Presentation of Spain, the Baltic States, United Arab Emirates was not large. From India only Consulate participated. The biggest area had Greece and Cyprus. Turkey has intensified noticeably, its stand occupied 60 square meters. Among the new products - the appearance of US exposure, which had two incoming companies of this country.
Observers draw attention to the small scale presentation of the federal tour operators: There were no "Biblio Globus», “ANEX Tour”, “Pegas Touristik”. “TEZ Tour”, as well as "Pitertur" and the several travel agencies from the Northern capital participated at the Exhibition.
“Tour operators with increasing frequency prefer other tourism promotion formats for agencies - organization of workshops, road shows, etc. Now the tourism forums are considered as more branding event, rather than a platform for establishing business contacts”, - the experts commented the modern trend.
