Maldives is being showcased at the Moscow International Exhibition (MITT) held from 19th to 22nd March 2014 in Moscow, Russia.
MITT is Russia’s leading travel exhibition and the key meeting platform for the tourism industry professionals to increase awareness about their destination, gain knowledge about the Russian travel market and gauge demand for their services, establish new contacts as well as to renew existing contacts.
As MITT marks its 21st edition, MITT 2014 will be the largest MITT exhibition ever, with over 1,800 participating companies and 198 destinations represented, topped with new destinations partnering and an increase of 1000 Square Metres.
MITT welcomes both travel trade professionals and consumer visitors, with specific ‘trade only’ days. In 2013, the event recorded an attendance of 37,000 visitors, 74% of whom were travel trade professionals. An increase in attendance is expected this year as the popularity of the event continues to grow with the demand for travel services in Russia grows and the spending power of Russian travelers become better known.
The Maldives Marketing and PR Corporation (MMPRC) together with 72 representatives from 35 companies from the tourism sector are being represented at MITT 2014. During the four days of the exhibition, the Maldives delegation will be meeting travel industry professionals and discussing potential future collaborations to promote the Maldives in Russia and Eastern Europe.
Russia being a source of top generating markets to the Maldives, it holds great potential for further development. A total of 76,479 tourist arrivals were recorded from Russia in the year 2013. This is a growth of 15.2% compared to year 2012. 6,182 arrivals were recorded from Russia in February 2014. Russia is currently the second largest market to Maldives with 7.2% market share.
