On behalf of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation I would like to welcome all exhibitors, guests and organizers to the 20th International Trade Fair for Travel & Tourism OTDYKH Leisure-2014.
Russia has a huge territory, rich historical and cultural heritage, which opens up great opportunities for tourism industry development. Tourism brings large financial revenues to the budgets of all levels, contributing to new jobs creation and transport infrastructure development.
I believe that the show will be traditionally held at the highest level, and OTDYKH MICE International Meetings Industry and Business Travel Conference will provide an opportunity for constructive discussion of the current state of the domestic meeting industry, contributing to its sustainable development as an independent economy sector in our country.
I would like to congratulate all of you with the 20th anniversary of the show, and I wish all exhibitors and guests fruitful work and much success!
Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation
