National Tourist Office of Serbia
Anna Polts, PR-representative
«More and more Russian tourists choose to stay in Serbia, whereas „OTDYKH“ exhibition suits the purpose of attracting them the best. Today, at the exhibition we present all kinds of recreation in Serbia, for which we held a major outreach programme to the public. We also had a lot of meetings and found new partners. We are very satisfied with the show.
We were especially pleased with attention from the organizers. We enjoyed the reception, where we got a special prize for participating. It was very nice!»
Office of Tourism of Andalusia
Jose Maria Perez
«The representative office of Andalusia has just been opened in Moscow, so we decided to show our region, not only at the spring exhibition, but at the autumn travel & tourism show, too. We loved Crocus Expo — it is much bigger than the ExpoCenter, which means there are more opportunities. It provides more advanced technologies, which is also very important.
We are happy with the first results — we held many meetings, talks with tour operators with whom we used to work, and meetings with new operators, many of which we have contracted.»
MATATO Maldivian joint stand
Abdula Gias, Vice President
«Russia is a key market for the Maldives. Indeed, last year Russians made up 30% of all tourists in our country. This year we decided to unite 8 Maldivian companies (including several newcomers) into one exposition of the Maldives. And we believe that this was a very good decision, because our stand is much more popular than before, when each company used to exhibit on its own.
In November the high season begins, so it is the time to choose a place for rest. And we believe that this year we will have much greater results than in the past, judging by the attendance of our stand».02.10.2013
