eTN supports Moscow OTDYKH Travel Market as media partner


OTDYKH Travel Market is Russia’s leading international autumn trade fair for tourism and travel, and eTurboNews (eTN) is proud to announce it will support the OTDYKH Travel Market in Moscow, Russia, as a media partner.

This year’s 22nd OTDYKH international trade fair for tourism and travel will take place from September 21-24, 2016 at the Expocentre Fairgrounds in Moscow in Pavilion 1 and Pavilion Forum.

The world OTDYKH means “leisure,” which is exactly the central aspiration of this fair. The annually-occurring travel event in Moscow is the perfect start for the upcoming winter season on the Russian inbound and outbound market.

Said eTN publisher Juergen T. Steinmetz, “OTDYKH has become a must-attend event for travel professionals, and eTurboNews with a reach that includes a global subscriber base of 230,000 and the potential reach of 1.3 million, including 17,000 journalists, is the perfect media distribution network for this event.”

OTDYH provides a platform for negotiations and signing contracts, and in 2016, over the course of the 22nd edition of this 4-day event, there will be 750 exhibitors from 70 countries and Russian regions, and it will include 160 business events in the 19,000-square-meter venue.

The first two days of the show are “trade only,” with the 3rd and the 4th day of the show being open for the public and for trade. In 2015, 79% of 53,000 recorded visits were made by travel professionals.

The event will combine all relevant sectors of the tourism value chain:

• Leisure Travel
• MICE and Business Travel
• Luxury Travel including Gourmet & Wine Tourism
• Medical, Spa & Health Tourism

OTDYKH Leisure is the leading international autumn trade fair for leisure travel in Russia. The exhibition is the gateway to the outbound market of Russia and the meeting platform for travel and tourism professionals, offering new business opportunities, education, and business development.

OTDYKH MICE occurs in the context of the geographical re-orientation of MICE events and the reduction of travel and event budgets. The event is showing a growing demand for new partners, platforms, and trends, as well as a need to exchange the experience and to become familiarized with the latest trends in the meetings industry. The OTDYKH MICE International Exhibition and Conference is aimed to fulfill these goals.

OTDYKH LUXURY is an international exhibition that represents the exclusive offers of international and Russian travel agencies dealing with individual VIP tours, unique resorts, luxury hotels, destinations, and other luxury travel segments.

OTDYKH SPA brings healthy perspectives for business. The growing demand of Russian tourists for medical and health tours in different countries, including Russia, has influenced the formation of a separate travel industry segment, represented at the 12th International Exhibition OTDYKH Medical Tourism, Spa & Health event.
