The Travel Fair Will Boost with Atmosphere of Close and Distant Exotic Destinations

Atmosphere of close and distant countries, lots of inspiration for travelling and introduction of tourist attractions, traditions and habits, including national specialties will be brought to Bratislava from 26th to 29th January by the biggest travel fair in Slovakia, ITF Slovakiatour. All fans of traveling will be informed on attractive tourist destinations, possibilities of accommodation, transport and food. Under one roof, the fair brings together travel agencies, tour operators, delegates and representatives of states, countries, regions, towns and municipalities including tourism organizations presenting the best they can offer to tourists.

The current 23rd edition of the fair brings several novelties. One of them is the fact that ITF Slovakiatour now has two main partners which means visitors can look forward to even more interesting events, attractions and accompanying programmes. The national partner of the fair is Košice Region that has been participating in the fair for ten years already. Regions Košice, Abov, Spiš, Gemer and Zemplín will present their tourist attractions, historical monuments, unique nature, folklore and traditional kitchen together. The foreign partner of the fair is, for the fourth time in a row, the very Moravian-Silesian Region from the neighbouring Czech Republic. Its colourful exhibition stand will educate visitors on interesting tourist areas that are located near borders.

Another novelty of the ITF Slovakiatour fair is participation of such countries as Mexico, Cuba and Poland. Travellers can also look forward to representation of Serbia through its capital Belgrade and also to participation of Abkhazia. Slovakia will be represented through all of its regions and especially highlighted thanks to a strong participation of Slovak spa concentrated in hall B1.

The festival of travel films Camera Slovakia – Bubo Ball is a very popular part of the ITF Slovakiatour fair. Professionals for who traveling means life will once again educate visitors on all the interesting corners of our world and tell their stories through films, photographs and storytelling.  

Wellness and Fitness

The travel fair is accompanied by exhibition aimed at sport – Wellness and Fitness situated in hall B0. The wide offer of machines and equipment for exercise, functional clothing or food supplements will be complemented by accompanying programme aimed at development of healthy lifestyle.
