October 1 UITM'2014, main autumn travel exhibition in Ukraine opens


October 1 to 3, the 21st Ukraine International Travel Market UITM'2014 will be held in Kyiv. The major travel companies joined the main autumn tourism event to create new contacts and find solutions of the moment.

‘International tourism is today a powerful global socio-economic force; a trillion dollar sector that sees the movement of over a billion people across the world each year,’ - the secretary general of the World Tourism Organization Taleb Rifai addressed to UITM 2014.

  ‘With UITM'2014 we as organisers contribute to the stabilisation of the tourist market and the economy as a whole. Live conversation at the open neutral platform of the exhibition should help each to cope with the fear of the crisis and get energised for constructive work. Come and see: the key companies continue to work and close deals, despite fluctuations and other difficulties,’- UITM’2014 project manager Julia Zheldak emphasized.

This autumn, the International Exhibition Centre on the Left Bank of Dnieper presents more than one hundred travel agencies and national tourism organizations from many countries. The show’s geography includes Bulgaria, Chile, Cyprus, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, Palestine, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, the USA, Thailand, Turkey, France and Ukraine.

Thanks to the Wild Card guest participation programme, ENIT Italian National Tourism Agency and the Honorary Consulate of Malta in Ukraine exhibit in the show. To remind, Malta is actively promoting not only the historical and cultural tourism, it is primarily one of the world's largest English study centres. Italy is world’s top 5 most developed tourist countries, gathering 6% of world tourism turnover.

Inbound tourism opportunities at the exhibition are promoted by Zakarpattya and Chernivtsi regions, Kyiv and Lviv city administrations. "Ukrainian travel brands" national stand presents the best projects for the domestic tourism in Ukraine.

Franchising is quickly gaining popularity in the tourism industry. By becoming part of a franchise a small travel agency gains the benefits of well-known brand, special rates and agency commission. Tour operators appreciate this business model for its flexibility and low risk. Franchising at UITM programme helps exhibitors and visitors of the exhibition tie business contacts.
