On behalf of the Federal Agency for Tourism I would like to welcome the participants and the guests of Moscow Autumn Travel Industry Week MATIW!
Russian travel industry is entering the period of dynamic development. Large investments on the state level resulted in serious growth of the regions’ activity. Russia has an enourmous amount of natural, cultural and historic attractions. Our aim is to fulfill the travel potential of each region, to improve the quality of services and to develop facilities.
One of the grounds that brings together all the professionals of travel industry is MATIW. The Federal Agency for Tourism pays special attention to such events since they have strategic meaning for the Russian travel market and contribute to the development of inbound and outbound tourism, create the country’s image on the international level.
I would like to note in particular that MATIW comprises a whole range of events that reflect the complete travel market: the traditional exhibitions Otdykh/Leisure, the exhibition and conference on business travel MIBEXPO Russia, the only Russian exhibition of exclusive tourism LUXURY Leisure and the conference Spa&Health. The combined effect of the most prospective sectors of the travel industry make MATIW the largest exhibition in Russia.
I would like to wish to all the participants and the guests of MATIW to maintain their strategy and to meet the planned targets!
The Head of the Federal Agency for Tourism A.
