OTDYKH Leisure 2020 at the center of innovation

International trade fair for travel & tourism OTDYKH Leisure 2020 will take a place on 8th - 10th September 2020 in Skolkovo Innovation Cluster in Moscow.

The first time, this exhibition took place in 1995. It was with the tourism business through all its crises and development phases. Its relevance is evidenced by the fact that the exhibition has been held on an annual basis for 25 years. Over the years, the main participants in the forum were the national tourism offices of foreign countries, the largest travel operators, airlines and airports, accommodation facilities, and resorts.

The current extraordinary events that are connected to coronavirus pandemic have become a universal challenge for the global tourism industry in general, and for Russian tourism in particular. We believe that it is a turning point for the growth of the Russian tourism industry and it’s the time to set such directions and development standards which will help bring ordinary Russian tourism to the global level. The synergy between government and business forms the market. And the face of Russian tourism for the next years depends on this cooperation and those decisions taken as a result.

We think it is crucial to support our long-term members and partners at such a trying moment for the market and provide an annual platform for demonstration, communication, and interaction in the safest possible format.  That is why we have decided to hold the OTDYKH Leisure 2020 at the alternative venue - in the Skolkovo Innovation Center. This Center combines territory for technology development, urban environment, comfort, and functionality of modern architecture. The exhibition and business program will occupy the Amalteya Hall, suitable in all respects and safety requirements for holding congress and exhibition events. Convenient transit accessibility will allow you to get to the venue quickly and comfortably in a short time from anywhere in Moscow.

In 2020, domestic and outbound tourism will become a priority area of the Forum. Live communication between participants and visitors will be improved by connecting the online audience: we are planning online broadcasts of all business programs, open communication areas, as well as live broadcasts from the stands. More than 30 regions of Russia and other countries are expected to participate.


Everyone interested in the development of the Russian tourism industry is invited to take part in the OTDYKH Leisure 2020. We will be happy to see you on September 8-10 at Amalteya Hall and on the website www.tourismexpo.ru
