Welcoming the participants of the exhibition, the Deputy Chairman of St. Petersburg Committee for Tourism Development Nana Gvichiya said that the Northern Capital is not just an open-air museum, as many foreigners used to perceive it, but also has a lot to offer in the sphere of gastronomic, business and even wedding tourism. These destinations, in her opinion, may be of interest to travelers from Arab countries.
«We know very well that Arabian tourists do not like to combine more than two cities in one visit, but we would very much like them to visit not only Moscow and St. Petersburg, but also other regions of Russia — Krasnodar region, Kazan, Kamchatka. The more so since Russian regions and Arab countries are now connected by a fairly large number of flights, — explained the purpose of the exhibition, the head of the holding Profi.Travel Alexei Vengin. — In addition, international exhibition companies holding exhibitions in the UAE, India and China have decided not to allow Russian exhibitors to participate this spring. In these conditions, online exhibitions such as RED become particularly important channels of communication with the Arabian market, which is very important for Russia».
In May, the organizers of RED Arabian held an open training for representatives of the Russian tourism business, where they talked about the business etiquette in negotiations and preferences of Arabian tourists in the food and services. This, according to Alexey Vengin, allowed to improve the quality of business communication between the participants of the exhibition.
