The main business platform for domestic and inbound tourism in Russia is the International Tourism Forum in Sochi this year will be held from November 22 to 27. The venue will traditionally be the Main Media Center.

The Tour Forum will be held under the auspices of the Sochi City Administration, with the assistance of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Federal Agency for Tourism of the Russian Federation, the Russian Union of Tourism Industry, the Russian Hotel Association, the Administration of the Krasnodar Territory, the Chambers of Commerce of the Krasnodar Territory and Sochi.

Taking into account the growing interest of foreign tour operators and partners in Russia, an English abbreviation – SIFT (Sochi International Forum for Tourism) has been added to the name of the Sochi Travel Forum since this year.

The focus on domestic and inbound tourism largely determines the demand for the Travel Forum in Sochi by industry participants, since this is the only congress and exhibition event of this profile.

Three key events will be held at the Sochi site, each of which will allow the participants and guests of the Tour Forum to fully solve their business tasks: the XXII International Tourist Exhibition «Resorts and Tourism. 2015-2016 season», Congress «Development of domestic and inbound tourism. New prospects and mechanisms for their implementation» and familiarization and educational tours of the objects of resort and business Sochi.

«The demand for Russian tourist products has increased not only within Russia itself, but also from foreign tourists and business people. Recently, the resort of Sochi also occupies a leading position in the ratings of resort cities most frequently visited by tourists in various resort seasons. We can say that Russian tourism is now experiencing a rebirth, but already in new economic conditions, taking into account world experience, with a focus on the highest standards and with an emphasis on its identity and unique natural and historical base,» said Valery Danchenko, Director General of the Omega Center.
