Reviews of otdykh exhibitors and visitors

“OTDYKH exhibition is an efficient business platform that brings together tourism industry professionals from around the world. Participation as a Strategic Partner is very important for us in terms of promoting Japan as a tourist destination”.

“Very encouraging sign that last year the Russian tourists visiting Indonesia increased on 37% that is the highest increase in the world. We are lucky that starting from 28th of October 2018 Russian airline, the subsidiary of Aeroflot will fly to Bali directly.....OTDYKH is one of the best travel expo we attend. This is the biggest one, especially in Eastern Europe.”

Mr. Wahid Supriyadi


Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia

“OTDYKH leisure is highly demanded exhibition among our co-exhibitors. This year 13 companies exhibited at the Dominican Republic booth. It is the most important exhibition in Moscow for our destination. September and October is a peak season for the Dominican Republic. Thus, we will continue to participate in the exhibition... It is very pleasant and convenient to work with the organiser. We highly appreciate their support.”

Ms. Galina Lysenko

Head of the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic in Russia, Ukraine, and the CIS

“We are participating at this exhibition for the first time and I hope it will be not the last time. This exhibition was very fruitful for Palestine. It is a very good exhibition. We met many people to talk about our programmes and offers. I think that this exhibition was one of the best we have ever participated in Russia”.

Mr. Jiries J. Qumsiyeh

Dir. Of Minister’s office, Ministry of Tourism & Antiquities, State of Palestine

“In 2017 we took part in this exhibition for the first time. The exhibition was very successful for us, and, most importantly, we received expert assessments and feedback (from Committee on Export Substitution and federal tour operators). All these helped us to adjust our product and actively sell it this year! We have already hosted about 15 tourist groups that visited the region. We understand that this is a driver for the development of the entire region. This year we presented the Emperor Route, which involves more than 10 regions. We expect 5 more regions, including the Crimea to join the project.

We like OTDYKH exhibition because it has both Russian and international components. This is an opportunity to see the far off regions, to make plans for the next year, to establish business contacts. This is an opportunity to spend three days in a working and informal environment, to conduct negotiations in comfortable conditions, sorting out the plans for the coming year. The exhibition is the best way to share new information quickly and efficiently. It is better to meet face by face, instead of writing endless letters. We are preparing new projects for the next exhibition, for example, the new brand of ‘Siberian Health’!”

Andrey Panteleyev

Director of the Department of Consumer Market and Tourism of Tyumen Region

“Vologda region is a traditional OTDYKH exhibitor. This year we were a Partner Region of the exhibition for the first time. During the exhibition, we presented our projects, including the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the ‘Veliky Ustyug — Homelad of Father Frost’ project.

The ‘Silver Necklace’ project brings together 11 regions of the country, represented at the exhibition by the ‘North-West friendly family’. The exhibition has an extensive business programme, which we appreciate very much. Sometimes it is not even possible to visit all events. We are grateful to the organizers of the exhibition. We were, are and will be always at OTDYKH!”

Dmitry Shevtsov

Deputy Head of the Department of Culture and Tourism of Vologda Region


“We are grateful for the OTDYKH organization. We all enjoyed it very much. The organizers were very helpful, and we have many good impressions from the exhibition.

We do not regret that we came to participate at the show. We hope for new meetings at OTDYKH.

We are waiting for partners and tourists in Uzbekistan! ”

Gulchehra Rahmatullaeva

Director of SHIRIN SAYYOH, Samarkand, Uzbekistan

“We use different tools to promote the hotel, including participation in exhibitions. Participation in OTDYKH 2018 was very important for us. The exhibition provides a good opportunity to draw attention to our products, to maintain already established contacts and to find new partners.

I would like to note the well-coordinated processes of exhibition preparation, including the marketing support programme proposed by the organizers, which we actively used prior to the exhibition. An intense business programme, round tables and conferences devoted to the hotel business turned out to be very useful.

Business meetings at the exhibition were productive, and we expanded our list of partners, and we continue to work with them actively”

Galiya Cherkessova

Head of Sales and Marketing, Prince Park Hotel, Moscow


“We had a great opportunity to announce three key events at once: the unification of three hotels under a single brand of Yakhonty Hotels.RU Management Company, the launch of New Year sales and the celebration of a significant event — the birthday of the Yakhonty network.

Most of the time we had meetings with partners and representatives of travel agencies. The main issues we discussed related to the agency policies, prices, and innovations in the guest service. At the same time we would like to note the increased number of private visitors to our stand. Among them there were many of our regular guests who know and love our hotels. It was very nice and we received ‘live’ feedback about our work. It is very important.”

Olga Statsevich

Head of Development Department of “Yakhonty” Hotels. RU“

“I was glad to participate in the Hosted Buyer programme at OTDYKH this year. It had very interesting format. The communication, obtaining information about colleagues and tour operator products — everything was well-organized, accessible, convenient and useful. Moreover, I managed to get acquainted with colleagues from other regions, and we exchanged contacts for interconnection on domestic tourism.

Thank you. I hope for further cooperation.”

Galina Teklyuk

Director of travel agency “KuMir”, Kungur, Perm region


“I really liked the trip! Prince Park Hotel 4 *, the Partner Hotel was wonderful! The meetings were informative and sometimes a bit exotic, and the dinner at the GOA stand was very exiting!

I really liked the tour to the Panorama 360 observation deck offered within the exhibition programme! I have never been to Moscow City, although many times passed it by! I was very much impressed! We have good transport accessibility with Moscow, and I will suggest to my clients to visit it”.
