AITF 2012, the largest tourism exhibition
AITF 2012, the largest tourism exhibition in the Caspian region, will take place in mid-Spring from 12 to 14 April, and will mark the start of the preparations for the tourism season. Over the years, AITF has become an important international professional forum where contracts are concluded, and new destinations and competitive price offers announced. The exhibition is organised by ITE Group PLC (UK) and its partner in the Caucasus, Iteca Caspian.
ATIF 2012, which will be held in Baku Expo Center, expects more than 200 companies, tour operators and organisations, which will present 60 holiday destinations, such as the Seychelles, Mauritius, Maldives, Thailand, Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic and others. For the third consecutive year, the country partner of AITF will be Turkey, which will take part in the exhibition with a collective stand. In addition, Dubai is expected to participate with a national stand. As usual, regional tourism in Azerbaijan will be widely presented. At AITF 2012, a new theme will be launched: Hunting and Fishing. Also, the Luxury Tourism sector will be further expanded.
Since its launch, the exhibition has been officially supported by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Azerbaijan, World Tourism Organization, National Confederation of Entrepreneurs’ (Employers’) Organisations of Azerbaijan, and Association of International Tourism Exhibitions.
