The event is main meeting place for industry professionals to identify business opportunities through direct cooperation and sales. It presents an assembly of the key stakeholder of incoming tourism in our country: tour operators, hotels, restaurants, transporters, cultural institutions and museums, tour guides, adventure sports clubs, tourist attraction providers.
