Continued demand for exotic and longhaul destinations like Jamaica makes attendance at LUXURY Leisure Moscow 2010 more important than ever

Now in its fifth year, LUXURY Leisure Moscow, Russias only international trade fair dedicated to the exclusive travel industry is expecting strong attendance at this years event in autumn.

September is the best exhibition date for exotic, long haul, winter sun and traditional skiing holiday destinations. So MaTIw marks the opening of the winter season on the Russian travel market.

Exhibitors do believe being part of the show is more relevant than ever as the tourism industry is recovering and Russians travel again. It is important to meet established companies and get acquainted with future partners as well as being highly visible. Especially as the Russian Luxury Market still hides a lot of potential.

Due to the recently published study The Russian Outbound Travel Market, conducted by the European Travel Comission and published in February 2009, Russian tourists are becoming more discerning in planning their trips and more demanding in terms of quality and level of accomodations and services. Furthermore, travelled Russians will be looking for something different offering better quality and new destinations.

The organizing team of LUXURY Leisure is delighted to announce the first participation of the Jamaica Tourist Board WELCOME JAMAICA!

Although Caribbean and South American destinations are becoming more and more famous, India enjoys the status of being a favoured destination for Russians. This importance is reflected by the number of Indian companies participating at LUXURY Leisure 2009, Taj Hotels, Indian Holiday and The Leela Palaces, Hotels & Resorts are among confirmed exhibitors.

Moreover, great islands like the Maldives, Seychelles, Philippines and Mauritius are very famous for exclusive travel among Russian travellers. Therefore Euroexpo is delighted to announce that the company Lets Go Maldives successfully participated the last few years. As a newcomer Crown Tours Maldives will be attending the fair.

LUXURY Leisure Moscow is going to take place from September 21 23, 2010 at the International Exhibition Center Crocus Expo in Moscow, Russia. The organizer wants to draw the attention to the fact that the NEW Metro station Myakinio with direct exit to Crocus Expo was opened in December 2009! So the exhibition center is now easy to reach for both exhibitors and visitors.

Travel exhibition MaTIw in Crocus Expo wins competition with Expo center

After four years of confusing situation with two travel exhibitions held under similar names at the same dates in September in Moscow, International and Russian tourism industry can now return to traditional timetable of tourism events held in Russia: 16th International Trade Fair for Tourism Otdykh LEISURE, organized by Euroexpo in the International Exhibition Center Crocus Expo will be again the only global tourism event held in Moscow in autumn.

The Organizer of the parallel event in Expo Center ITE Group has cancelled its event in 2010 and will not organize it in the future.

This decision was long awaited by tourism professionals worldwide as it stops confusion within the industry and, it will allow exhibitors and visitors to optimize their budgets, time and interests and to concentrate on one annual autumn event only. A timetable of b2b travel exhibitions will herewith return to its stable and most convenient situation with two global events one in September, and one in March.
