“Tourism in Russia is taking on a new life today. All institutions are working to develop the industry, from representatives of major commercial companies to the authorities at various levels. The Russian Tourism Forum ‘Travel!’ is a young, but successful project. In addition to the event component, its ecosystem includes other platforms for innovative proposals in the tourism sector. And the administrative, informational, and resource base that has been formed over the years of the forum will be useful both for government officials and businesses, and, of course, for all travellers, regardless of the range of their interests,” Zatynayko said.

The Russian Tourism Forum ‘Travel!’ will be held for the third time in 2023 on 811 June at Moscow’s All-Russian Exhibition Centre. The forum is being organized by the Roscongress Foundation.

The forum is an ambitious event that provides a platform for business networking between the state and businesses in order to discuss key issues in the industry and the first tourism festival in Russia for a target audience.

The entire range of tourism opportunities offered by the Russian regions and foreign countries will be presented at the ‘Travel!’ forum, from well-known routes to formats that are rapidly gaining popularity, such as road trips. The investment appeal of Russia’s regions and infrastructure solutions in tourism and hospitality will play an important role in the forum’s programme and exposition.
